Friday Five and superlatives

Welcome to the lovely friday morning - it's time to join again in Random5Friday
Willy Nilly Friday , Five on Friday and Fun Friday Favourites


The biggest dry hydrangea flower, what I've ever had, is this.
The disc has 27 cm.


The sunniest warmest days we had on sunday and monday, it was more summer-like than spring-like.
I've put the flowerpots out and we had our lunch outdoor, at the backyard.


The happiest creature is the cat. Her garden chair is out now.
Yes, it is her's!  I should look for another place to read or buy a second chair ...


The worsest day for a mouse was the tuesday.
She met the cat and it ends tragically...


The greatest contrast I found between the books by Penelope Williamson and Takashi Hiraide. 
I wrote last friday that I read them.
Both are well written, but very contrasting in styles, actions, worlds.
 "The guest cat" (English title) is a unspectacular silent story full of magic and very Japanese.
Wonderful pictorially describing of architecture and small everyday things. 
Light, shadow, geometry ... and the mystery of a cat, who comes to visit the both people every day.
The happiness to meet a cat, to live with her for a short time and
respect her sanctity
A mysterious fascinating cat.
And  a sad story too.
The entire view of the world and life can hardly more different between these books.
 "The guest cat" is a truly wonderful book, now it's in my top ten of books.

Have a nice weekend all :-)

  10. Your hydrangea is amazing. The images --WOW! So nice to welcome spring out doors. I love that your cat has its own chair. I can relate. I think my cats believe everything belongs to them and they tolerate me using the FURniture when they aren't sitting there. I've put the Guest Cat on my wish list. Happy Friday!
