The tell-tale (or should I say tell-tail?) signs were all there. No, I shouldn't have been surprised to find my delightful tulips in this condition when I entered the kitchen one morning last week.
Nor should I have been surprised to see this.
And it's all because of this. Well, I should say her. Nipper, the tulip and gerbera daisy eating cat. I avoided the daisies since I knew she could not resist their tender petals. So I bought tulips, one of my top three favorite flowers. She hadn't eaten the daffodils nor the other tulips I had purchased the week before (although I did catch her with pollen on her head!).
And so this is what became of my beautiful flowers in just a few days.
I guess it's back to daffodils.
