The greenhouse cat

I went over to the greenhouse to take a few photos today and was pleasantly surprised when I was greeted by a cat.

Her name is Rosie and she followed me right into the greenhouse. Visions of kitty kitty amongst the flowers danced in head.

Rosie however, had an entirely different agenda.

I knelt down and she crawled up on my shoulders. This is one of those turn the camera around, point it toward the cat and hope for the best shots. I thought for sure this was just a momentary kitty thought.

This was not to be the case. Rosie road on my shoulders nearly the whole time I was taking photos. It made for an interesting time for me. But she was so sweet.

I walked back into the office with her riding the entire way. At that point she left me for food.

My mom always said that three-color cats bring good luck. 

A young woman I used to work with is currently traveling around the world and she posted this on her Facebook page today...
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."—Mark Twain

Mark Twain said a lot of good things. I haven't seen that quote before, it's certainly worth writing down and trying to live by:)

Rosie is so pretty. I'd say she was very pleasant company in the greenhouse:)
