Cannot Be Hidden

...Aesop

My sweet husband and I met 36 years ago on February 19 and we were married less than 7 months later. He brought home a beautiful bouquet of yellow roses and baby's breath to celebrate Valentine's Day and our "meet cute" anniversary. He chose yellow roses because whenever I cannot find Katniss, I sing "You are my Sunshine" and Katniss will come running to me. I sing to her if she is under the bed, under my car, in a closet or whenever I want to see her...it works every time. And, of course, Katniss claimed the roses for herself. Now she dines with roses on her table. :) Best on black.

You Are My Sunshine sung by Elizabeth Mitchell

Pretty roses and composition!

@suzanne234 I haven't seen Katniss eat them but she does smell flowers, circles them, admires them and knocks petals off with her tail! She does seem to love the roses. :)

@kathiecb Thank you...At first, I thought she thought I was distressed so she was running to my aid. But now I think she really does enjoy it because she will come up and knead me with her paws or groom my hair. Katniss is very sweet. Thank you for the follow! :)

@hermann I agree, Sally! Thank you! In fact, I am not quite sure the roses were intended for...Katniss or me! :)

Thanks for enjoying my story and rose capture. I am not sure if Katniss photobombed the photo or not but she is always welcome, whatever she does. :)

@365karly1 @taffy @carolmw @kwind Many thanks...Katniss loves flower bouquets. She always assumes they have to be for her. She circles the vase, smells the flowers and knocks the petals off with her tail while she is trying to put her scent on them, claiming them as her own. I love this ritual! I cannot resist this appreciation and share. :)
