The Heavens & Creation Praise His Name

I love to see the night skies. The sunsets on some evenings are so intense that you want to hold your breath while watching them. None of the colors in my pictures are even close to the real thing. Nights like last night have colors that would look fake if you tried to paint them. Here are some pictures of the sunset last evening.

My gladiolas are starting to bloom. Some of them were planted around the house when we moved here. I bought and planted a few and a friend in California sent me some beautiful ones to plant. I keep a vase full in the house until they are done. I also try to share them with others. So far I have this pinkish red ones and white ones.

I have been told that these are coreopsis. I am not sure what they are, but I am 5' 7" tall. These flowers are even with my forehead. They are really tall.
Then I found this tiny little daisy plant in my yard. Most of the daisies around here are on longer stems. These were all really short. =)
This is one of the wild kittens. It is getting a bit braver. We have been trying to catch it because it has weird eyes. At first I thought something was wrong with it's left eye. However, everyone seems to think that its let eye is a really weird green and a totally different color than its right eye. I think it will get bigger if you click on it.

You know, we used to have a sports-caster in our area that had one blue eye and one brown eye. I understand that while it's not common, it's not all that rare either. That's probably true in the animal world as well. :-)

The sunset pics were beautiful. I know what you mean about a painting looking fake if you try to recreate the real colors. On one hand, that doesn't make sense, but on the other, trying to recreate what God did so well just never looks the same!

The kitten is so cute(!) but I bet it sure would fight if anyone tried to cuddle it. Definetely post a pic if you get a close-up of it's eyes.

Take care! And thanks for sharing!

What wonderful sunset photos, and beautiful gladiolas!

I can't tell for sure what the really tall yellow flowers are, but I don't think they are coreopsis. My coreopsis is very short, bushy, and has tiny, tiny yellow flowers on it.

Thank you for your comments at my blog. I'm enjoying your blog very much.
