Cats and flowers make a wonderful combination, just look at this picture of my darling Chuck (blue Longhair/Persian) in my former garden in Oegstgeest.
Is he complimenting the David Austen rose Heritage, or is the rose complimenting him? Don't they look lovely together? I like this colour combination of the silvery pink rose, the silver grey cat , the greenish yellow flowers of the lady's mantle and the dark green of the chair.
My cats are such wonderful additions to the garden; they make everything look so much better! And they know it, vain creatures that they are. Many a time I've caught one of my cats sitting of lying quite close to a flower or plant that really brought out the beauty of the cat.
Today is a lovely sunny wintersday with a mild breeze and a temperature of 11,5 C. It feels like spring!
In great towns, gardens, both private and public, are positive necessities if the citizens are to live reasonable and healthy lives in body and mind. William Morris, Hopes and Fears for Art, 1882
