The Dream of Flying

Have you ever had that dream?  The one where you can fly? It's been years since I've had that dream, yet I can still somewhat recall the feeling. It was total freedom.  When I looked at my kitty Guy the other day, I couldn't help but think that he was having that dream.  As only kitties can have, a dream of flying up in the sky where those birds are, just out of reach!

"I is flying...." zzzzzzzz

To accompany this post, I chose an appropriate piece of music.  The second song on the play list today is called "Dream of Flying", by Brian Crain. I've added a few assorted images which are mostly cat pictures.  Actually I'm showing these out of order, the cat nap occurred after the time spent outside.

It started like this......

 Guy said, "Whatcha doin MOM?"

"Go Away, You're Scaring Away the Chipmunks!", Guy said with exuberance!


"MOM!" Close up of the mouth!! He talks all the time!

 "I is the Black Lion King!", says Guy  .... with extra floofy fur!

Dot, thinking, "What is that stupid Fairy up to?" Yes, Dot that is the fairy garden...

 Dot, "What's outside the fence! It's OK, mom keeps us safe."

A blue clematis in full bloom!

Thank you for joining us here in the garden, we enjoyed having you visit!

Oh, and sweet dreams....



  1. Diane, it sounds like you love your cats so. Guy is such a BIG cat! This is a cute picture of Dot by the fairy garden. I've been wanting to make a fairy garden myself.....maybe this summer.

    Have a pleasant weekend, dear.

    love, ~Sheri

  2. Guy is gorgeous!!! Your photos are lovely, Diane, and your blog is always such a joy and a soothing place to visit. :)

  3. What a fun post! My goodness but Guy has grown into such a beautiful cat. He should hang out with my black cat; she is also a talker. Whenever I speak to her, she answers. It's the cutest thing!

  4. Guy is a beautiful boy, and Dot is quite a pretty girl! Super fun post Diane! :)

  5. Awww~! It looks exactly like he is having that kind of dream.

    Wow, Dot looks like a fluffier, girl version of our Mandrake.

    1. RK, I'm afraid poor Dot has been hit by middle-aged spread! That's not really "fluff" you are seeing! My husband says she looks like a Double Stuffed Oreo Cookie! I wish we had named her Cookie, it would have been perfect! She does love to eat and laze around, while Guy is still young and full of energy!

  6. I just want to rub both their tummies!

  7. Dear Diane - this post made me smile and smile. Your kitties are so cute and that Guy makes a wonderful Lion King!! Clematis is beautiful. Mine is later and will not bloom for a few more weeks. So glad to enjoy yours. Hope you have a super week! Hugs

  8. Happy June to you...
    I had the flying dream last week - it's always amazing! Beautiful photos of Guy.

  9. I haven't had a flying dream in a long time. Pretty cats!!

  10. Dear Guy, Dot and Diane I so enjoyed this post, I loved the music and all the pictures, and yes, I have had that flying dream but not for a good few years. These days I tend to have falling dreams – the ones that wake you up with a start – I don’t like those, so will think about flying when I nod off tonight. Happy June. xxx
