Isn’t that the truth!

I often wonder about the power of an animal’s mind and whether they have the ability to ‘make you do something’. Of course the answer is ‘Yes’ – as you will see here.
Early morning, cool and grey outside, no fire turned on. Someone seems to think otherwise. I’m sure she was lying there on ‘her’ mat sending out mind messages, visualising me turning the switch.
A little later the room is warmer, everything looks and feels warmer. Kiera is now turned to the heat ignoring everyone.
See I told you , as far as she’s concerned – Job done! The power of persuasion lives one – the mind message now is ‘Life is good, when’s dinner?’ 🙂
I don’t often show the right hand side of the kitchen windowsill – it has a fly screen on the window and the view can be a hazy. But would you look at that – dishes on the draining board means Catherine has actually stood there long enough to do some housework!!
Of course I don’t mind too much when it’s a lovely sunny day like Sunday was – and after this brief interlude in domesticity I was out the door and like a shot. The previous post tells you what I did and saw but when I told you I’d picked the first Spring Bulb I didn’t mention there were a few others bits flowering as well. Not enough for a flower basket (well I haven’t actually got one but it did paint a pretty picture didn’t it lol) but they did have to be carried indoors very carefully for the Kitchen Window Sill.
As well as the first tiny unnamed jonquil (similar to paperwhites), I found a single bit of Hebe, an early bud from one of the Camellias, a couple of Azalea blooms that had survived the rain and much to my delight the Bergenia plants are starting to flower. Is this a sign of Spring or are these just plants that love Winter? I’m hoping it’s my first thought 🙂
And of course there are the resident felines to consider – curly and his friends had been admiring the view since the beginning of last month so I gave Big Ears a treat and put him on there to keep them company.
Did you see Santa and the shells were also still sitting in the same place on the right hand side – not enough dust in the air for me to have to wipe it down therefore they have sat there un-noticed all this time lol
How’s your window looking these days – are there enough flowers to make you smile at the kitchen sink?
Linking to Today’s Flowers
blooms from all around the world can be found here
Clean kitchen windows meant fresh flowers were needed for the window sill – sadly there aren’t a lot to choose from at the moment. The constant winter and spring rains have made the Azaleas all mushy and the majority of the Camelias seemed to have dropped quickly but those that stayed for the game are all brown round the edges.
Except for these few I found this morning
There are ‘Old Friends’ to chat to whilst I’m doing the washing up – Curly the permanent resident of the window sill, the Lucky Black Cat as well as the sleepy black cat from Zenstone Sculpture in Devon. Sleepy has been with me for quite a few years – cheeky thing jumped into my carry on luggage during a trip to England and insisted on coming back to live here.
I felt at the moment I needed ‘Memories’ to look at so there are a few of the shells and a little piece of coral I found in Queensland that made the journey home to Victoria this year – as well as the last photo taken of my Dad and us before we left Uk in 1972.
All is well 🙂
How do you dress your kitchen window?
