The House That Time Forgot

Yesterday, I rode with my son to a neighborhood not far from our house to visit a kitten we had given away. Afterwards, I walked out behind their home and found this dilapidated old house, about to fall down. I saw the trees and bushes that had grown up all around it and, quite frankly, looked like they were actually holding up the structure. I started zooming in with my lens, taking shots, and I noticed a black cat sitting on part of the house. He wasn't in the first pictures I took, so I think he must have heard us and came out to see what was going on. He was a bit wary of us, but didn't leave so I took several shots of him. I was able to get one good closeup of him before he turned and slowly climbed back inside the house. Not far from the house we found a deserted old lamp post laying in the leaves and dirt. It must have been there for sometime, as there were vines already growing up over it. In a separate part of the yard, I found the pretty purple flowers. I have no idea what they are - but thought they were really pretty. The flower itself was about the size of a nickle. (Mrs. Marjena tells me these are called Moses in the Cradle - pretty fitting name, I think.) Then, near the driveway, I found the pink flower - again, no idea what it is. I took several pictures and got this one decent one. We had a good trip, good conversation, I got to visit the sweet little kitten, and got to take some awesome photos...what more could I ask for?
