Before I get to Stewy I just want to show today’s wildflower find. I discovered these tiny yellowed eyed pretties with pale blue petals while walking through a corn field.
Bluets – Houstonia caerulea
I didn’t expect to find Bluets among the corn debris but there were a fair number of tight little clusters like this one. If it doesn’t rain tomorrow I’ll be going back to ‘save’ them. How can I resist?
Nearly every cat I’ve had has followed me around but none like Stewy. Stewy will tag along through woods and fields on walks that loop around a couple miles out back. Stewy would rather hunt for mice along the stone walls but he’s patient enough and will wait for me when I fuss with the camera. Dog not so much, Pookey took off for home rather than wait. Dog doesn’t care to be out standing in a field.
Corn field kitty
The stone walls are Stewy’s favorite hunting grounds. There are plenty of mice and chipmunks that easily evade him by vanishing into the walls but Stewy doesn’t mind, finding a comfortable place to wait for them to reemerge is no problem.
The swamp out back might slow Stewy down but it won’t stop him from following. This time I had to wait.
Oops, go where?
There was a jump of about 6 feet to dry ground and Stewy had to sit and think it over.
Who put my tail in the water?
About now I was getting a feeling Stewy was considering me pond scum.
Ya got to be kidding me
Just as I was about to save him, Stewy made the jump. I have to admit it was an impressive leap of faith.
