|Naked Ladies amongst the Nandina and Wisteria|
Still, I sat there talking. Something bumped my car hard enough to startle me. Then, I heard the plaintive voice of a cat. I opened the door to find Sophia sitting there, just looking at me.
Finally, I got out of the car, headed up the driveway and past the house with a plate of lasagna, salad, tomatoes, bread, and a bit of cake. I never call "Delilah" until I get to the back corner of the house.
As I rounded the corner to the back of the house, Thelma and Patsy Cline headed toward me at a dead run. The little ones were being chased and swatted by Sophia! That is not the cat I thought had eaten my little one. Quickly, I got them all in the pen, dumped food, and locked them up for the night.
The Naked Ladies/Surprise Lilies/Resurrection Lilies caught me by surprise. Yesterday, there were buds. Today, these plus another dozen had bloomed. That is a coaxial cable hanging down, ready to affix the antenna to the house.
Sorry about the naked ladies, coffeypot.
How would you dissuade a cat who wants to kill my little chickens? Aren't those delicate, beautiful blossoms?
