I am the prince of flowers by RavenMontoya I am the prince of flowers by RavenMontoya
Oliver does not know how to pose. Or more likely, he chooses not to pose when I need him to. He sat perfectly still among the rhododendrons when I was just looking at him, he refused to do it in front of the camera. I have a bunch of "Nah, I don't want to do this!" shots of him that I might upload into Scarps. :XD:
I did however FINALLY manage to get this shot and I quite like it. The purple is so intense and fits well with Oliver's grey fur. :meow:

Anyway this concludes my Flowers and cats for this time. I've got loads of other flowers in the garden, but getting the cats to pose with them... Lets just say it doesn't come easy. :giggle:

Previous parts in this series:

Of course Oliver knows how great he looks - he's a cat. :lol:
It took quite some work to get this picture though. He made a lot of funny faces before I could catch this one. :XD:

Most times, I rarely see cats with flowers as beautiful as this. You just broke the norm for me so I like this extra special :D Heart

I figured that if I get to show both my cats and my flowers at the same time then it's a win-win. ;)

I love this!  Not just because it's a gorgeous photo but because rhododendrons are my favourite flower, and Oliver reminds me of the beautiful cat I had for 7 years named Mysty.  His face is a slightly different shape, but the colouring is exactly the same.

Thank you! I love rhododendrons too. And azaleas. When they all flower it's like a firework in the garden. It's one of the best times of the year. :heart:
Mysty sounds like a very handsome cat. Do you have a picture of him/her? :meow:

Rhododendrons don't grow here (I live in Perth, Australia) because it gets too hot for them in summer.  I've seen one very straggly thing in a botanical garden, struggling to be half of what it would be in a cooler place.  I saw some in Tasmania when we went on holiday there in November and I was in absolute heaven!
Mysty was indeed very handsome.  Here he is, I just uploaded it for you.

I see. Rhododendrons do like a bit of shade and moist, that's true, and when they thrive... they become huge! I just find them so stunning. The winters can be a bit rough for some more delicate species here in Sweden, but the 'Grandiflorum' is a classic, purple giant that are very common here in Sweden. It looks like a purple cloud of flowers when in full bloom. :heart:
My dad's a bit of a rhododendron collector so I guess it rubbed off on me. According to my parents, "rhododendron" was one of the first words I learned how to say. That's a bit... nerdy. :lol:

It must be so wonderful to look at those so often.  A lush rhododendron in full bloom is hard to beat :iconloveloveplz:

Ha ha!  One of my first words was kangaroo-potomus-bird.  Considering I lived in England at the time that was rather interesting!  Is 'rhododendron' the same word in Swedish?

RavenMontoya Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2014  Hobbyist Photographer
Oh, yes, there's nothing like it. :love: I have a really big, red azalea that is stealing a lot of the spotlight right now. It's called 'Satan' (if you see it, it actually makes sense :fire:) and it's an inferno with red flowers right now. I'll see if I can upload a picture of it. :giggle:
'Rhododendron' is the same word in Swedish, yes. :nod:

Oh wow, it sounds amazing.  Have you taken a photo?  If not, you'll have to steer Oliver in that direction for another 'cats and flowers' shot :iconlittle-cats:

I tried, but it's been raining and the cats are sleeping. I think I'll have to dig out an old photo. I'll see what I can find. :D

It does, yes - and a bit of luck too, I think. I like being in control of things, but I can't control luck or my cats at all so I pretty much try to have the patience of a cat instead. A cat can sit and guard a rodent trail for hours and I can follow my cats around with my camera for hours too. :roll:
