|Yellow Rosa 'Buttercup' & Rosa 'Margaret Merril' 11 October 2023|
|Niña & Niño 11 October 2023|
While it is sunny here in Kitsilano I am in a melancholy mood. In a couple of hours I will be taking Niño and Niña to their Feline Hilton on West Boulevard. I must put them in a cage first. They don’t like that and they meow in my Chevrolet Cruze.
I am fully packed and I have a notebook where I write down necessary stuff to take in this 21st century like my phone charger and the laptop charger.
I will get into my bed and there will not only be the absent presence of my
Rosemary but that of my cats. I will feel empty.
After this trip to Mexico City will I want to part from those little creatures again?
To illustrate this blog (5921) I was rewarded by cheery roses. The yellow English Rose, Rosa ‘Buttercup’ was a Rosemary fave. But it is the white one, Rosa ‘Margaret Merrill’ which she would have smiled at. It died before she did but I replaced it her memory after.
In the snap I took of the two cats a few minutes ago I see my belt. I will pack it into my suitcase and it will be one less object to remove at airport security.
