I was surprised to find this prickly pear cactus growing and blooming here in Indiana one summer. (My research tells me it's the only cactus that can survive here.) I was even more pleasantly surprised to see what happened to the fragile, yellow flower when it was converted to black and white last night.

This artwork fascinates me. It's a cylindrical tower, about ten feet high, with no plaque announcing its title or naming its artist. It sits in the cobblestone courtyard of what was once a brewery, back in the 1800s. The brewery was converted to shops and studios years ago, but is almost completely abandoned now and is in rough shape. Below is a shot of the top half of the sculpture, taken from the elevated parking lot next door.
What do you make of it?

Gatsby Cat ponders the sudden appearance of dots on his napping spot. (They're shadows cast by a vegetable steamer held up between him and the table lamp above.)

There's a garden center not too far from us that uses lots of old furniture outdoors as props for the plants. I loved this old chair, and I longed to rescue it from the elements.
(*P.S. - Here's the color version:)
