A close encounter with bugs

I thought it would be a good idea to check the scuppernong vine because I wanted a photo of hanging grapes. I pushed my way in and among the thick foliage, reaching in and looking up and down for fruit. I heard a tiny 'cheep' and looked for the bird. No fruit, no bird. Oh well. So I went back inside and found about 5 min later I was covered with BUGS! Little tiny bugs! So much for photo safari. After my close encounter with foliage and insects today, from which I am well recovered, thank you, I am now convinced this is the only way to enjoy the outdoors:

However, while outside, I took a moment to snap a photo of one of my favorite birdhouses near the scuppernong vine

Outside there is undoubtedly beauty and charm. But inside my apartment there's also major cuteness:

Bert's new favorite place: the back of the couch. Home sweet home.

thank you! He is Bert, and my other is Luke, a black and white both are pretty cute if you ask me! If you click around enough on this blog you will see plenty of photos of them by their proud mama. Bert is solid and heavy though not fat. Green eyes and faint Abyssinian look. Luke is wiry and light and has a heart shaped face. Do you have cats?
