Fun Flower Friday!

Happy Flower Friday!
Wowsers, the summer sure is zooming by, isn't it??


I wish I really had magical puppy fairy powers and, now that it is cooling off a bit, 
I could push the summer pause button...


 
Here are some of the flowers blooming around us!
Pretty lacy Hydrangea...





Some pink snowball hydrangea


 
Here is some Japanese Thimbleweed pointing it's face towards the clear blue sky


 
Let's see what else we can find....



OH...here is a little poppy...and look here comes a bumbley bee!!


He's busy finishing up his summer pollinating!

Remember...




We hope everyone has a pawesome weekend!!

Thankful for my Hat this Thursday


Rosy here to tell you how thankful I am for hats! You see, Mama really likes to dress me up...but when she tries to put dresses on me I get sulky and don't move(A big thanks to my Uncle Murphy for teaching me this trick).




But when she puts a hat on me, I will strut around in it all afternoon and let her take all the pictures she wants!




I also don't mind wearing a pretty bandana!



I think a good hat and a nice bandana is all a pup needs to be fashionable...


Don't you??

Not My Imagination on Monday!

Arty here today to tell you about a visitor we had last week..and it wasn't even in my imagination!!





It all started when I was catching up on my backyard patrols...



I alerted Mama to the situation, even though I was pretty sure she wouldn't be happy about it. She shoo-ed us pups inside and, against my better judgement, she went out on her own to investigate!




It was a GINORMOUS SNAKE, I mean it was at least 87 feet long and 87 inches around!!!



YOU OK OUT THERE MAMA?? 
DID IT EAT YOU??
What do you mean it's only a couple of feet long and not more than an inch or two around??



Looks pretty humungous to me!! Look at those beady little eyes!!



I guess I might have used my imagination a bit when I told Mama how big it was...




Needless to say, it was a little garter snake  and no one was in any mortal danger, except for the snake. So Mama kept us up on the deck until it slithered away....

We sure do have lots of nature at our new house!!

Flowers in Our Backyard Friday

 Happy Flower Friday everybody!!


 Today I wanted to show you the flowers we have blooming in the backyard!!


 Mama has been missing the Lantana plants we used to have in Texas, so when she saw these beauties in a basket she told me she had to have them to hang on my back porch!



 She also bought a basket of sunny, yellow Lantana mixed with some pretty cornflower type flower and another basket with beautimous yellow and purple petunias!




 Look over here, we have some pretty flowers against our back fence too!



 Our hastas are in bloom!
Aren't they a pretty shade of purple??



 I wish you could smell this Jasmine, it smells heavenly!



 Lastly we have what Daddy calls "Not Tiger Lilies" cause they look like tiger lilies but they aren't! Mamas smarty pants app says they are Montbretia, I think I like Daddy's name better!








Thanks for stopping by and joining us while we looked around the backyard!

Thinking of Rain on Thankful Thursday

 This week we are thankful for the morning drizzles we have been getting here on the Northy North Lost Coast of California 




 It has been keeping the temperatures cool and helps protect us from fire hazards






 ...and although it may look like I am singing the "Rain, Rain Go Away" song, Squiggy and I are really hoping it will rain South and East of us to help the brave first responders put out the horrible wildfires in those areas (and other fires raging across the western half of the USA).



Squiggy and I are sending lots of POTP to all those, both human and animal, who are effected by these fires.
