Chat de mai de tendres fleurs tout parfumé


Le mois de mai défile et  il est temps de vous présenter son petit chat avant que celui de juin ne vienne lui voler la place.

May is passing by and it is high time I introduced the May cat to you before it is replaced by next month’s one which is ready to come on stage.

On dirait qu’il tient une brassée de toutes les jolies fleurs de printemps qui parsèment les blogs ce mois-ci.

It looks as if it had its arms full of all the flowers that have sprinkled the blogs this month.


N’oublions pas non plus que nous sommes aujourd’hui vendredi, le jour du Friday Foto Friends de Debbie, et cette semaine le thème que j’ai choisi sera « Une touche de rouge ».

Voici donc un petit pêle-mêle des clichés du mois qui n’ont en commun qu’un soupçon de cette belle couleur chaude.

Let us not forget that today is Friday, which means the day for Friday Foto Friends at Debbie’s, and this week’s topic will be “A touch of Red”. So here is a jumble of the pictures I have taken this month and whose common point is nothing more than a touch of this warm colour.


 Rouge comme les champs qui entourent ma ville en ce moment et qui se parent de pourpre pour le plus grand plaisir de nos yeux.

Red like the fields that surround my city and that are currently clad with scarlet for the greatest delight of the eyes.




Rouge comme cette belle voiture d’un rassemblement vintage dont la couleur a réussi à me faire sortir mon appareil photo alors que les automobiles ne sont absolument pas un sujet de prédilection en ce qui me concerne.

Red like this beautiful vintage car whose colour made me seize my camera even if automobiles are far from being my favourite photographic topic.



Rouge comme la crête de ce volatile ébouriffé  que j’avais promis de poster pour Elena et sa fille qui aime tout particulièrement les poules. Une pensée également pour Tatyana et sa collection de coqs avec ce dernier à l’allure altière.

Red like the comb of this ruffled hen whose picture I had promised I would post for Elena and her daughter who has a soft spot for hens and chicks. Another thought for Tatyana’s rooster collection with the last photo.

  1. I love your May cat. So very pretty. Kinda makes me want to do some cross stitch again. It's been many years since I've done any.

    Your red photos are very good too. Love the rooster!

    I hope you have a wonderful day and great weekend!

    1. Thank you for your nice comment and also for joining my blog, Cathy! I wish you can resume cross stitching, it find it so relaxing and rewarding, but I must admit that is is also time-consuming. Best wishes for a nice Sunday!

  2. Your kitty cross stitch is very sweet. Love the field of beautiful red Poppies and that red car....so very cool. I wouldn't mind taking a spin in that. As for the ruffled hen, she is fabulous!

    1. Thank you, Kim! I agree with you about the car, I imagine that taking a ride in it must be an experience that makes you go back in time. It has become definitely more than just a means of transportation, some sort of time capsule! Xx!

  3. The floral richness depicted in some of these pictures is quite outstanding. Everywhere here is a burst of colour now - a great time of the year to be sure.

    1. Thank you, David! Every outing in the countryside offers a different scenery as the vegetation changes from day to day and is replaced by another marvel. A good consolation for the fleeting nature of poppies, for example.

  4. The field of poppies reminds me of the poem Flanders Field.
    I love the May cat with his arms full of flowers.
    The best photo for me is the chicken and his glorious feathers! He is amazing.

    1. Thank you, dear Annie, for your comment and the hint at the moving poem by John McCrae that added to the symbolism of the delicate red flowers.

    1. Thank you, Dimi, for this nice comment! The colour of the fields was not an easy task to capture but the poppies at sunset gave quite a satisfactory result. Wishing you a nice afternoon!

  9. May cat - beauty!
    Red - the color looks great on the scallop of the Rooster, and not only in the color of poppies :)
    Roosters are wonderful!

  15. Sandrine, this cat is so cheerful that he is European. but not Siberian. Our would be paired with a snowman :)))
    What an amazing scarlet fields! When I was little, I lived in Kazakhstan and the same poppy fields were visible from the balcony of my house. Sometimes they even dream of me!
    Thanks for the photo of the males !!!
    Good weekend! Tatyana.

    1. Thank you, Tatyana! So there will be a Siberian cat on my calendar for the month of December, with a little snow and a warm pullover :))
      Is Kazakhstan very different from Tomsk in terms of landscape and climate? Your country is so big that they don't seem so far away from one another on a map but I can't realize the distance very well.
      Wishing you a nice evening! Sandrine

    2. Kazakhstan is also a big country, in the north it is as cold as in Russia as a whole. But not like in Siberia :) Although frosts, of course, there are! And in the south of Kazakhstan it's hot, 40 degrees is the average July temperature. It would be like in France. if there was a sea. I lived in South Kazakhstan. Therefore, all the time freezing in Siberia :))) But I endure :)
