Mellow Yellow Monday: Siren Appreciates the Flowers

Drowsey Monkey started a photo project.

Each Monday just post any photo (that you took yourself) with yellow in it. Then go on over to the MELLOW YELLOW MONDAY site and check out all the yellow.

I took this photo last year - Siren was fascinated by the flowers. I'm sure he wasn't planning anything naughty - he's a good boy.

It's just a coincidence that there are new flowers now.

Pretty ones! Don't you wonder though what is going through Siren's mind?

Hi Dianne! Very beautiful. I especially like the first one with the little bit of Siren's reflection. Lisa

The Calla lilies are in bloom? Beautiful!

Teena in Toronto said...

My boys would be attacking the flowers! Ha!

I played too :)

Patti said...

My felines would be chewing on those lovely flowers.

Happy Mellow Yellow Monday!

Love the use of the mirror ... perfect angle too, almost as if it is another picture. Very colorful!

I do a lot of picture creations on my blog, so a few accused me of NOT using an actual photo taken by me. When I thought about it, before "Mellow Yellow" not mant pictures WERE originals.

Hello from the SpeedyCat :-)

Beautiful flowers.
Lovely vase.
Cute cat.

I've visited your blogs in my feeds for awhile - glad to connect!

Dianne said...

bobbie - I always wonder what is going on in Siren's mind! lol

lisa - thanks! I like the reflection too

amanda - they're the only kind of flowers Siren can't destroy - plastic ;)

teena - he's actually very good about most decor :)

patti - if he wanted to sit on them then he'd be destructive otherwise he doesn't care

speedcat - I'm so glad you like it, thanks for such positive feedback :)

violetsky - thanks for commenting! nice to make new connections

BEAUTIFUL flowers and fun to consider what Siren might have been contemplating. I shared yellow flowers too ... ones that are growing outside right now actually.
Hugs and blessings,

Great yellow choices! Pretty flowers!

Drowsey Monkey said...

Gorgeous flowers! I love that first photo, lol. I can just imagine what Siren is thinking.

Thanks for posting & joining in the fun! :)

Linda said...

These are great and the flowers are just lovely. I used to buy flowers 'just because' and display them on the dining room table but now the table is covered with Amanda's stuff and the flowers would just get lost. Something to do when I'm living on my own I guess!

JunieRose2005 said...

Oh! Both are very pretty!

I DO like the reflection in the mirror a lot!


Skies said...

I love the posts here in mellow yellow...Siren is very much in love with your flowers, could be thinking of giving it to somebody he/she loves?

Lilli & Nevada said...

What beautiful flowers. Love the cat bed in the background of the last photo

Tina said...

lol i love his curious little face!

thanks for stopping by my mym :)

Sharon said...

Beautiful flowers. Our cats like to chew on the flower arrangements I have in the house.

Dianne said...

retired gal - Siren has many expressions, I love trying to read his mind :)

tamy - thanks!!

drowsey - thanks for hosting!

linda - I can't let real flowers anywhere near the cats or plants so I soothe myself with plastic and silk
living alone is a dream of mine! - except for the cats of course ;)

junie - thanks! I want to try more mirror shots - have to figure out how to keep myself out of them lol

skies - I love that idea - Siren is a bit of a romantic at times ;)

lilli - and all my messy pillows! I didn't make the bed yet - the cat bed belonged to JR - he passed on in 2007. Siren won't go near it and Mia uses it as a scratching post but I don't have the heart to get rid of it so it's where the pillows go :)

tina - thanks - he is a handsome boy :)

sharon - my guys are fine as long as it's not real and not in the way of wherever they want to sit

Tarolino said...

Thanks for visiting my blog.
Both your pictures are lovely but the first one is my favourite. In my minds eye I can see that the next shot would have been a tipped over vase and an annoyed cat furiously shaking his wet front paws (reflection and all) :).
I used to have two cats and that meant chewed up house plants.

Pia K said...

What a pretty picture of Siren with the lilies! What a treat to have such a wellbehaved boy, ahem I must admit flowers of this kind wouldn't last very long in cat range at my home...:)

2sweetnsaxy said...

Nice yellows. I love the one with the cat looking up at the flowers. Great capture!

Olga said...

At first I thought the second photo was of orchids....but they are gladioli, right?
Still, very pretty!

me ann my camera said...

Beautiful soft yellow, and I think your cat thinks so too! Lovely. I like the meme idea.

pehpot said...

I like the first photo, beautiful flowers..

Dianne said...

tarolino - my guys destroy live plants - they usually leave everything else alone

pia - he has his naughty ways in other things! the back of my sofa is just about gone

2sweet - thanks!! Siren is very photogenic - if I do say so myself ;)

olga - I'm never sure what most flowers are - I just liked how delicate they were

me ann - yellow is another one of the colors I don't appreciate enough - this meme will change that just they way ruby tuesday did for red :)

pehpot - thanks!! I LOVE your profile pic - the most adorable baby :)
