The smell of Spring

27 Mar 2010



My darling Honey has been sniffing around these daffodils all week. She just can't resist them. But she knows she's not allowed to touch: just a glance from me sends her scampering off the table with a little whimper.* When I say "No", she responds with a little meow. Sometimes it's a silent meow but I can see her little mouth open. I often feel guilty. My mum says I'm too firm. My husband just laughs when she reacts to "No" used mid-sentence.

I needed some cute photos of Honey to use on greetings cards (my family must be sick of us!), so we had a little photo shoot and for one afternoon only I allowed her near the flowers. I know, I send her mixed messages...

* I do have a good reason for banning her from the daff's as they are poisonous to animals. Maybe I shouldn't have them inside at all!

i didn't know daffodils were poisonous to animals --- thanks for mentioning that.

that photo would make a beautiful card. your family members are lucky! have you considered selling Honey cards/prints (on Etsy, perhaps)?

Love her! I didn't know dafs were poisonous to kitties. Good to know. My cat loves the pine needles that collect on my deck and she promptly regurgitates them exactly 24 hours later. Sigh...will she ever learn?? ;) xo
