After Thursday afternoon's storm, I decided I'd better check the property for damage. Despite the tornado warning, we didn't get a tornado, but we did get a lot of wind and rain. At sunset, I went out to check.
I didn't find damage, but I found this fairy ring
Had fairies come out to dance
after the storm? Uh, no. But the Twiglets—the three offspring of Twiggy the barncat—did come out to participate in their evening ritual. Spotz was the first to emerge from the shelter of the pines.
And what, you might ask, is their evening ritual?
Playing on the pasture fence! Spookie is the first up.
Soon Sherman and Spotz come to the fence.
Sherman's tail is blowing in the wind.
Spookie has left her post, but Sherman looks like he's having so much fun up there.
Soon Spookie occupies a post.
Before long, the sun has set. Two Twiglets tire of fence-sitting and go off in search of adventure.
Spotz reigns as queen of the fence.
Perhaps her siblings will dance in a ring around her.
Cats are more fun than fairies and a lot easier to photograph.
