Stone Cat guards the fishpond

I love relaxing with my cats in my backyard.  A warm and sunny Fourth of July provides the perfect setting for spending time with my feline friends.  They each have a favorite spot in the yard; Otis stretches out under the oak tree, Callie sits on the cushioned lawn chair and Alli secludes herself under the steps.  All three keep me company; we bask in the heat, listening to the burble of the fish pond and the occasional rustling of the tree branches when a gentle breeze passes by.  Once in a while one or another will approach me for a scratch behind the ears or a tummy rub.  Mostly, though, they sit or recline silently, seeming to enjoy, with me, the restful feeling of an early summer morning in July.
