Searching for beauty...

Our complex has started a roofing project, which is not approved by the cat boys but "was kann man sagen?", we have to deal with it. It feels as if we are in the midst of a construction zone and indeed we are.

The cat boys were indoors and I was searching for beauty because I needed it. I noticed gingersnap eating catnip next to the tray of plants I had recently purchased from the farmer's market...aahhh, what a sight!
We love these colors...they are perfect...absolutely perfect, and the boys agree too.
Ollie became intoxicated and started grooming under the sun strips, where he usually likes to rest.

And gave me the serious look when too many photos were taken of him. Okay, I thought.
Upstairs, Sweet Pants was doing what Sweet Pants do: pondering,

“Never say there is nothing beautiful in the world anymore. There is always something to make you wonder in the shape of a tree, the trembling of a leaf.(Albert Schweitzer)

and perhaps furry cats and dogs and horses and birds and beautiful flowers...

Cat boys sent kisses in pawfuls. They wished you all a happy last Wednesday before the vernal equinox!



  1. always something to wonder...
    in the shape of a

    love you
    love those boys!

  2. Oh my. Between the amazingly lovely flowers and the thought of stretching out on that fur, I am wanting to climb into that post! Wonderful.

  3. Nancy- especially in the musical shape of a feline! love you dear friend xoxo

    Sam-thank you, and I want to let you know that the fur is especially inviting...xx

  4. Awww sorry about all the noise.

    Your garden flat reminded me of how much fun I used to have in Pas going to Hortus :(

    The quote! I couldn't agree more.


  5. Oh my, how long will the project go on?
    Beauty is now really needed, and you managed to arrange it.
    Ollie is doing his share as a gentleman.
    Kisses to your boys !!

  6. Ro-xx

    Mette- all these repairs will be with us for a while and we have to learn patience... xx

  7. deep reflection indeed ;-)
    happy weekend to all of you and I hope the roofing project isn't causing too much noise and dirt.

  8. I love the sun strips on Ollie and that fuzzy blanket for Sweet Pants looks so cozy. I hope the construction finishes without a huge mess. Please send some of that sunshine up north. :)

  9. Yes, beautiful flowers! (Need to get some for my balcony so I can enjoy spring a little more :))
    What better way to ignore the roofing project than to sit and admire those lovely colors together with the cat boys.

    Best wishes!
