The Supernatural Daffodil, primroses and a hungry cat

April 6th, 2011 Comments 0

On a walk in the park today I discovered that there are many yellow flowers who all work together to make magnificence -

and also that daffodils look good even from behind.  My cat came out to join me in the park which was unusual.  I naively did not suspect a motive behind this other than “cuddle me”.

However it soon became clear that all the rolling at my feet, following and leading me on ahead back home was in fact just “feed me”.  He doesn’t usually come to fetch me from the park for dinner.  I was dawdling in the flowers so he emitted a rare “Miaw” to let me know the urgency of the situation,

Dinner time.

But wait!  Behold the Great Supernatural Daffodil of Greatness!

See how he (she/it?) glows with the Light from Another Universe and how all the other daffodils avert their eyes from his (her/it’s?) Glory!

Never underestimate his (her/it’s?) powers!Q!!!!!11!!!

Ah the spring!  It’s so wonderful to have more warm pink snow to play with this year.  I watched this shrub dropping it’s first clean pink petals onto the back alley on the way into town.  Several days later and those petals had already gone brown, but the pink ones keep coming.petal1

I decided to leave something for people to see as they walked along.  My first instinct is always to do a heart, but I tried to do something else this time…

The first catkins of spring always take me by surprise, and are always such a pleasure,



and there are bushes which grow fluff (especially harvested for fluff needs the world over.)

Although the view behind was nicer, that same sun was on my face when I went ahead.  I kept wondering what was over the edge, but the edge just keeps moving.  Then I remembered there are incredible things all around me, so I went to explore,
