Some days it is nice to hide in the flowers and just watch

I love this photo of Comby and the flowers. I am am avid (obsessive) putter-togetherer of your puzzles, and I'm wondering if it would be possible to make this one into a puzzle? If it is too much work, that's OK--I will survive lol, but the contrasting colors would be so fun to match together.
Thank you for your blog. Reading your posts is always a highlight for one of my days.

Comby is brilliantly color-coordinating.

I know it's a tradition to have Comby sleeping in the calendar, but that photo is beautiful and imo calendar worthy.

Oh Sara, thank you for posting this wonderful picture of Comby! I immediately called my husband into the room to show him, & we both said, at almost the same time, "Calendar photo!". Comby is always so striking with his handsome coloring contrasting with other colors; the flowers, the snow, the garden, etc.

Last month marked 8 years since our beloved Jasper (Comby's doppelgänger!) passed away, 1 week before his 19th birthday. For the first 5 years I wore his tag on a silver chain; I was so mired in grief. Being disabled & bedridden much of each day, I had come to rely on him so very much, along with my other 4 cats, for companionship & love. Gradually they all passed away, one by one, of old age, & I was finally able to make my peace with that, grateful that they all had lived very long, loving lives. I know that many cat parents have had that one extra special, extraordinary kitty that they'll never forget, & Jasper was mine.

One of my most important bucket list items is to attend one of your "open farm events", & I hope & pray that Comby will still be with you then. If you are wondering where he may be that day, just look for the crazy ginger cat lady in the wheelchair! =^..^=

Warm Regards, [Comby Fan] Lisa

This needs to go in the next calendar. He'll appreciate having one in them where he is awake. :)

I've enjoyed reading all the comments about this picture. I tend to be a glass half empty sort of fool and while I do like Comby and flowers, mostly what I see is the grungy gas tank, the crooked fences, the water hydrant... It IS a nice picture of a dear, dear old friend who looks very content sitting there, not noticing any of the messy stuff. Good lesson. From you and him.
