Vintage Photo: September Morning in the Garden

September morning in the garden.

What’s not to love? A tangled happy garden, a sleepy happy cat, lots of color and detail and sunlight.

My garden kitty, Moses, enjoys her morning nap on the bricks in the shade of the beans, mid-morning in September. I’m fairly certain I took this in the late 90s, but it stands in for any sunny morning Moses and I enjoyed in the garden. Remembering Cookie and Namir this morning while Mimi and Mewsette and I were out hanging laundry (well, I was hanging laundry), I thought I’d bring out this photo, and one other, below. I think of all the cats who shared my garden, and the fact that Mimi and Mewsette were probably acquainted, though they never lived in the house together.

“Respite” is from the same day, a little later because it’s afternoon sun, and very interesting how the colors are so saturated with this film, with a reddish cast.

I have the story of Moses as my Garden Sprite in The Garden Bean. See other photos of Moses on The Creative Cat and read the story of her rescue and life.

Also, see other Vintage Photos of my household of cats from days gone by, and taken on film with my Pentax K-1000.

    • Tabbies, Sally did not like to eat Brussels sprouts, but was glad to roll one around on the floor and chase it!

    • Moses was really the original garden cat–though there had been others before her, her love for the garden set the standard.
