Pickin' daisies

I love that there are daisies everywhere right now.
Every back road, country road and ditch has these happy little flowers peaking out.
I just have to stop and pick some.

The weather was perfect today.
Neighbourhood felines were out and about.
This guy was wary of the dog.

It's amazing where they will catch a few zzzzzzzzzzzzzz's.
and even the inside-only kitties enjoyed the cool breeze at the window.
Isn't this a sweet face.

We had a little chat and I do believe I got a pose here.

And what holds my pretty daisies at home?
This gorgeous gravy boat/maple syrup server/flower vase was a gift from the very talented Ronna from She painted the yellow cat on one side and a red one on the other. It sits beautifully in my step-back cupboard and compliments the daisies.
Ronna is an artist, animal-lover and an amazing cake-baker so I really think you should pop over and have a visit. You won't believe her cakes.

Daisies are the happy flower.

  2. That is a very sweet vase/gravy boat, perfect for summer daisies. You found some great cats to photograph, love that cat in the trailer. Going to visit Ronna now. Have a wonderful day!

  3. I love Daisies of all kinds ! The wild flowers are pretty also ! Wonderful photos ! It is sticky and humid here this morning after a night of rain ! Thanks for sharing . Have a good day !

  4. Our mom had daisies at her wedding many years ago.

  5. Beautiful! I love the daisies, and the cat photos even more.

    My indoor-only felines love to sit at the sliding door and windows whenever I open them protected just the screens... I would be too scared to let them out! So they enjoy the birds and the outside breezes safely from inside.

  6. LOVE Ronna's cat gravy bowl, talented lady! It is perfect for those daisies. I love them too and they are blooming everywhere right now, cheering up the roadside wild places and our gardens. Mine got buried under some larger plants and were dying so I have just replanted a bunch of them in a pot. Minerva x

  7. We get daisies around here too, both in the garden and beyond.

    The kitties look like real sweeties!

  8. I had lunch with Ronna today! She's at our house, doing some work for Gordon. :)

  9. Indeed they are the happy flower! I'd much rather be picking them than pushing them up:-D XOXO

  10. Thanks for the shout out, Deb!

  11. Daisies are so sunny and lovely. They're everywhere here (Oregon) right now too. :) I love all your kitty photos here. They're beautiful. Every single cat in the Universe is a treasure.

  12. Nothing much grows around here and what does has fried away in the 44C/112F weather. So thank you for this wonderful post. They're the only daisies we'll see.

  13. I love the wild daisies growing along the side of the roads. They make me happy!
    And I like that little kitty dish!
