The other shot pixabay.com accepted.
The mayor of Vineland, NJ, (many, many, many years ago) started a Dandelion festival and he would cook up many of the dishes served at the fair / event. Looking at google to see if the event is still held, it looks like they have switched over to a Dandelion Dinner. Too bad. Not as much cooking to do but not reaching as many people, either.
As a child, I was sort of indoctrinated that dandelions in the lawn are evil evil eveil! But after seeing M C Escher's woodcut of a dandelion, I saw how beautiful they are.
So one afternoon a few years ago, I spent time shooting digital photo after photo of a robin, a sparrow and dandelions. An afternoon well spent!

Of course, C has to be for CAT!
I'm not even sure which cat this is. I am pretty sure it is one of three that when they were just a couple of days old, the mom brought them and left them under my office chair, knowing I would watch out for them. They were wonderful kitties. One, unfortunately, died from an injury, cause unknown. And the other two eventually disappeared -- I think their mom did what I asked her to do, took them to one of the nearby farms to live and spread joy to others. I hope they did and are still happily doing that job.
Recently, I saw through an article link at facebook that 80% of orange cats are male and female orange cats are considered rare. Those three had a rare mom!
For lots of orange cat fun, check out Cole and Marmalade on YouTube!!!
You can find this photo at pixabay.com. Of the 20 or so photos I submitted, only two were acceptable -- this one and one of my dandelions. I disagreed with their reasons for not adding them to my gallery but, hey, what can you do when someone else makes the final decision? I was surprised to find that more than 45 people have like this kitty enough to download the photo from pixabay! **grin**
