Nature Speaks

Some of my best friends are Daffodils.  They make me smile and tell me their secrets and I'm always happy to see them.  Yes, that's right, I talk to flowers and they speak back to me, not in words, but in ideas and inspirations.

Spending time in nature, hanging out with flowers, trees, birds, butterflies and bees, is like going to art school and church at the same time for me.  Every visit to my garden is a lesson in color and composition.  Every branch and blossom is a reminder of the beauty and potential in every living thing, including me and you.

I suppose if anyone has ever overhead me saying hello to a tulip or how do you do to a butterfly, they probably thought I was nuts, but that's okay.  I know that my time spent conversing with nature is actually something that keeps me sane. 

So now if you ever catch me in my garden saying, "thank you, thank you, thank you", you'll know who I am talking to and you'll know why.

Cat Mom's Day Reminder (A Letter To My Cats)

View more framed poster art at

I know, cats can't really read (or can they?) but I wrote mine this letter anyway.  By the way, the next Cat Mom's Day is Sunday, May 10, 2015.

To My Dearest Cat Kids,

Mother's Day is coming up soon and I just want to remind you that means you must give me a card and a gift. No, I don't mean the kind of gifts you leave in the litter box or cough up onto my new area rug. And yes, you are all precious gifts yourselves but allowing me to pet you, feed you and tell you how wonderful you are doesn't count either.

Now, I would like it very much if your gift to me was a day of you all being well behaved, getting along with each other and being less demanding but we all know the chances of that happening. So what you need to do instead is talk to Dad. Remind him what a very good Cat Mom I am and that I deserve something special for Cat Mom's Day. He'll know what to do.

And before you ask me when Cats' Day is, I'll tell you: In this house and in my heart, Cats' Day is every day.
