Sunny Sunday afternoon at home

My neighbors have an amazing flower garden. They are kind enough to let me cut whenever I would like. So seeing that they were off fishing, I wandered over and clipped to my hearts content. The gardens this time of year are starting to wane, but there were plenty of dahlias and black-eyed Susans.

The way you used the paint in the cat shape is just wonderful - it evokes a "flat cat" perfectly.

So beautiful, those flowers look alive! And the cat, so funny! I know exactly how that looks when they kind of spread out on the floor and you can´t believe how big they are... :)
