Please Don’t Eat the Daisies

Yesterday I treated myself to two gerber daisies—to celebrate the first day of spring, and because they made me feel good. The pink and yellow are so cheerful and sunny.

As you can see, I am not the only one at my house with an appreciation for botanicals. Given the chance, my cat Lucy would happily dine on them. So after she posed for this photograph, I moved the vase to a shelf in my office where I can appreciate the flowers, but she can’t eat them.

Sorry, Lucy!

Until next time,

I love Gerbera daisies – but not as much as Lucy does. She looks positively ravenous!

LOL! She also enjoys fresh lettuce and spinach. Go figure.

My Himalayan has taken up trying to steal the dog's food, and my dog is a 100 lb. German Shepherd/Husky! I think he's trying to tell me he isn't so thrilled with the new diet the vet put him on. He doesn't eat vegetables though.

The Gerbera daisies are cheery, Lee. Lucy will just have to enjoy them from afar.

Sheryll, your comment made me smile. If I had to predict who would successfully steal food from a 100-pound German Shepard/Husky, I'd say it would be a cat :)
