In the kitchen.
In the front hall.

Another in the front hall. Yesterday, after work, Prince went to check on the farm house and the old Mays House. He spied all these little yellow dots behind the farm house and went to investigate. He picked enough for us to have three buckets.
When he came home, he went over to check on Brenda and I assumed he was taking photos of the beautiful sunset. So, I let Maggie out and she went charging over to greet him. Then she spied Mz. Kitty and tried to introduce herself but Mz. Kitty was having nothing to do with Maggie. Sam Cat always runs from Maggie and Mz. Kitty stood her ground. Up on her back feet with claws showing Maggie could not understand why she was so fussy.
On the way back to the house, Prince said he had me a present. When he tells me this, you never know what the gift will be. He keeps KJ guessing with his interesting presents. He opened the truck door and started picking them up off the floor board and handed me a big handful. I immediately stuck them to my nose and inhaled the heavenly fragrances. After he had picked up all the stray blooms from the floor and I was so excited, I ran into the house to give Mimi a whiff. Just those few warm days had made these beautiful flowers come up and color our world.
The kitty justice is Prince is a keeper. What other guy after a day of work would stop to pick flowers to surprise his wife.

Lady Di,

The flowers are beautiful. Spring has come to your world. It will be a couple of months before it reaches mine, but nice to know that it's coming this way.

Yes, Prince is a Keeper, for sure. I hope Mimi enjoyed the flowers as much as you did.

Oh I love Daffodils Not many men would stop and pick flowers for his wife,, Prince is a keeper.. looks like spring is in the air over there ..

Daffodils - a poem by by William Wordsworth

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

The waves beside them danced, but they
Out-did the sparkling leaves in glee;
A poet could not be but gay,
In such a jocund company!
I gazed—and gazed—but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:

For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

Dear Dianne ~ ~ How lovely of Prince to pick all those beautifu; daffodils
for you. Look like spring is on the way over there. Thank you so much for your comments and concern for the victims and survivors of this disaster. It seems whenever there is a crisis, it brings out the best in people and everyone wants to help and support these unfortunate folk.
I am so glad that you enjoyed the story of Sam, and I think the fireman is to get an award for helping an animal, from the Animal Welfare ppl. Thank you so much, Dianne for your kindness and support. I really appreiate it.
Take great care, Much love, Merle.

Only a teasing of Spring has come in a few warm days. The birdbath water was frozen solid this morning. Prince said he needs to get to the farm house and pick the rest of the buttercups. Peace

I agree about the arson. Prince is a rare and thoughtful man. Love the poem. Thanks for sharing. Peace

It was odd to have such warm weather in February but now ole man winter has returned just like the groundhog predicted. I think it is great that the fireman who gave Sam the water will get some recognition. I know how lucky I am to have such a wonderful and thoughtful Prince. Peace

The flowers put a fragrants of spring in the house and yes he is. Peace
