Sunny-Side Up

A daisy, sunny side up. (click picture for larger view) Posted by Picasa
"Buttercups and daisies,
Oh, the pretty flowers;
Coming ere the Springtime,
To tell of sunny hours."
~ Mary Howitt
A hot orange daisy stands tall in the glaring sun as the heat rises into the 90's. Flowers bloom brighter and reach their faces skyward on a sunny day. Not me. I wilt, from top to bottom. I love sunny days; as long as a shady hammock is close by and the ocean breezes are cooling me down.

Our cats are like the daisy; they love the sun, the hotter the better. Clover used to climb on top of boxes in the hot Mississippi garage and sleep next to the garage door windows, with the sun streaming in. Max the pooch? More like me. He finds the most sheltered shady piece of ground or that cool block of concrete behind the re-cycle bin, and there he stays; coming out only to lap a little fresh water from his bowl. No, Max doesn't care for bright, HOT, sunny days.
