Lily and Cat （百合与猫）
There are too many names for lilies. There are an Easter lily, a Polyanna lily, and a perfume lily, etc. Most people aren’t familiar with so many lilies. It’s enough if we ordinary people see one and exclaim, “Wow, that’s really gorgeous!”
My wife brought home a bouquet of lilies from the flower market. There was a mix of reds and yellows, and they had a heavy, sweet fragrance. Although I never figured out the names of these lilies, they were perfect for a flower arrangement. We put them next to the telephone in our living room, and they were truly a treat for the eyes.
After having my wife’s permission, I took the vase and flowers upstairs so that I could paint them. I added a cat rolling in the middle of the lilies, to give the scene some extra interest.＠
