Daily Photo: The Rare and Precious Kitty Flower

five black cats in the shape of a flower
Look what I found on my bed–a kitty flower!

Just like the blue forget-me-nots and yellow buttercups and pink cranesbill geraniums and my old pink pasture rose, a precious five-petaled black flower bloomed on my bed this afternoon.

I find it blooms most often on cool and cloudy days, and even sometimes in the winter.

In the photo below, Mr. Sunshine is in the middle and he is also one of the petals at about 12:00, then clockwise it’s Bean, Mimi, Giuseppe and Mewsette.

      I stood on my tippy-toes and held the camera over my head–and it took several shots to get it right! Thanks for visiting.
