Poor Rosemary and her pal Sage are reaching out desperately for sunlight in the weak north light of a warm living room. They are not happy.
On the other hand, our friend Finley, who joined us last April through Toronto Cat Rescue, happily soaks up the sun. He does not make flowers or fruit. He cannot be used to perfume sweet potato fries. He does, however, produce a prodigious amount of fur. And besides his fur and the sunshine, he has our love to keep him warm.
Happy people. Happy cat. Not so happy herbs. We can fix that by eating the herbs to make the people happier. Happy folks pat cats. More happiness. It’s a love-in! That’s not too shabby for a Lack-of-Blooms Day in mid-January.
Many bloggers in the world actually have flowers to show off this Garden Bloggers Bloom Day. Why not leave here in a huff and check out the whole bouquet at May Dreams Gardens, when on the 15th of every month Carol invites all garden bloggers to strut their flowery (and sometimes furry) stuff.
