Sunflower Surprise!

It's PO'Monday, yet my surprise occurred on Saturday.

Cheryl English, business owner, potter, friend, fellow cat lover, and Advanced Master Gardener, stopped by for a quick perusal of The Eastside Cats' gardens and yard, and a yummy meal at a local restaurant.

Before we climbed into the car to find lunch, Cheryl surprised me with a package.

A gift, from my dear dear friend ET, made to honor Celestial Paddy O'Malley.

Note the PO'M's eyes and fur.
Ignore the human who couldn't keep her lips off of the cat.
This lovely sunflower artwork, made in the colors of PO'M!
Eyeglasses are for scale...it's HUGE!
Close up so you can see the colors.
On the back, PO'M's name and a star, to denote that he's in Heaven.

Thank you, ET!

Thank you, Cheryl!

Visit Cheryl's shop at Black Cat Pottery.

The Hubby and I haven't yet found the proper location for this beauty; we may hang it on a pole in the garden, or attach it to the house nearest to where Celestial Paddy O'Malley hung out.

The bestest kind of surprise EVER!

Perhaps the sunflower would look good hanging in a north facing window.

PO'M' looks a lot like my large tabby named Brewsky. Brewsky turned twelve in August, and is growing grayer by the day. He's in good health, but because he is big (not fat, just big), I worry that he won't live as long as would a smaller cat. I'm grieving in advance, the upside being that he loves attention, and I'm giving him a lot of it, as if my wife, Peggy.
