 sweet peas and lemonade

  2. It's always such a please to visit you for FITH - a lovely bouquet, poem and kitty cat.

    Your cat looks pretty curious about your flowers. Does he/she mess with them? My cat can't stand to leave baby's breath alone and will tear a bouquet to shreds if I use it.

    1. One cat ignores them; the other always wants to investigate--mostly sniffing.

  4. Jen... Pretty flowers and thoughtful kitty. Am surprised that you and Jane do not have to pony up more kitty treats as payment for all the photo shoots! Have a pleasant week...Susan

  5. It is a poem. Beautiful hydrangeas - I love how they get more beautiful and antique-y the later in the season it is. Where has this year gone Jen? Spring for us, autumn for you - it was only yesterday wasn't it that it was the other way around. Enjoy the balmy late summer. It may be spring here in mind, but not really in temperature yet!

    1. I picture a globe, maybe one of those nice black ones--you are on one side and I am on the other. But here we are.

  6. 'Looking forward, looking back' makes a perfect theme for flowers that mark all our transitions. Beautifully done. Here's to the upcoming crisp days and apples.

  12. Jen,
    The photo-poem is perfect in every way. It should be framed and displayed.

  13. Hello Jen, What a summery photograph, all evocative of comfort--the painted table surface, the sunlight streaming in the window, the cat in shadow, and the flowers absolutely glowing.
