Todays FITH are brought to you by the whole damn family. We hunted and gathered flowers and herbs with the Lab first thing this morning. Though eager to finish her walk and get home to breakfast she allowed us to poke around in alleys and friends yards to get a handful of blooming mint here and a bunch of autumn blooming clematis there.
Add to that sedum, hydrangea, butterfly bush and allium from our garden and voila the house begins to smell like we live in the country. Even the kittens are sniffing at the fallen leaves on the kitchen floor..
I smuggled a few teddy bear sunflowers out of the shop yesterday.
I'll do the time if necessary. Pure happiness right there.
We filled a old bottle and a little mug with some clippings and placed them high above the kittens heads.
Barring any crashes in the middle of the night.....
And I placed one of my favorites, a reblooming, heavily scented white iris next to the bed.
Thought better of it and moved in onto a dresser.
Where it still sits. I think. I haven't been in there for hours.
The little ones followed me from room, jumping up to smell and bat around a few flowers. Their favorite scent was on GG's arm from where she weeded a patch of cat mint.
Believe me there is not one leaf of that herb in the house. I hope.
Though Gus does appear to be a little bit out of it.
If I can wake him up we hope to trot round to your houses and see what you've got.
Flowers I mean, not cat nip.
