Be the Rainbow

 Welcome to anther SATURDAY'S CRITTERS

I hope this post finds you all well, flowers and gardens growing well, which finally has occurred right here in Minnesota. More about that coming in another post, stay tuned. I'm also posting to City Daily Photo.

I promised sharing photos of Athena, my daughter's newest four-legged critter, from the same blood line as their dog, Artemis. 

Can you tell she loves her toys, to pieces?

"You are the storyteller of your own life, and you can create your own legend, or not." Isabel Allende

Sweet Athena again, the pool princess!

Ducks side by side.

"I have found my voice again and the art of using it."


This is one of my pieces I made for another art challenge. I joined the #dyicad2022 on Instagram it runs for 61 days! "Index Card A Day," art.

Adorable Rusty!

"Our perfect companions never have fewer than four feet."


Sweet Miss Emme you've seen her here before. (One of my oldest son's dogs)

"It is the image in the mind that links us to our lost treasures.

but it is the loss that shapes the image, gathers the flowers, weaves the garland." Colette

"Let the beauty of what you love, be what you do."


"The art of knowing is knowing what to ignore." Rumi

(Ask any cat)

"If I want to grow and blossom as any tree would, I have to start by knowing my roots and understand how I came to be the tree I am. Learn your ancestry."

Jeffrey G. Duarte

This is my artwork for June 11th today's prompt is, Rainbow. 

"To be astonished is one of the surest ways of not growing old too quickly." Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette.


Yep, that's my reflection!

"Relax, Recharge and Reflect. Sometimes it's OK to do nothing."

Izey Victoria Odiase 

and also

"Recognize your gift, your talent, your calling. Expand on what's already working."

Take good care of you.
