Flower Friday Arty Style

This week's Flower Friday is dedicated to Jessie, who lost her battle with kidney failure this week and left for the Rainbow Bridge. Mama and I, Arty(and Angel Dory), were lucky enough to get to spend time with Jessie and her brother Casey and the B.A.R. in 2016.  She was such an adorable bundle of love and will be so very missed.
Run Free Sweet Jessie!

Arty here this week to show you the blooms blooming in our neighborhood
(while we still live here)! 

The azaleas are starting to bloom! 
Here I am standing in front of one of our neighbors hot pink flowering bush!

The trees are also continuing to bloom. 
Mama just loves these pink blooms~

We also see these beautiful tri color beauties all over the 'hood...
We are hoping YAM Aunty, or someone else, may be able to tell us what they are!

This pink blooming bush smells pretty, and so does the peemail that lines the bottom of it!
 I made sure to address some important business while I was there!

Here we have some cheerful yellow Azaleas!

Mama had a giggle when she saw the metal Buttie Pillar on this VW Bug.

Come on Mama...you're falling behind!!

Here we have some pretty white blooms. 
Mama is pretty sure they are some kind of floofy cherry tree blossom.

How about these sunny eucalyptus blooms?
 Mama really loved the way these smelled too!!

Finally, here I am checking out a kitty across the street while Mama ooo's and aaaaa's over the pretty Iris!

Mama and I hope every one has a sunny weekend!

    We miss Jessie already♥

  3. So sad about Jessie. We love the flower you don't know what it is the most. How beautiful. No flowers here. Getting 6-12 inches of new snow by tomorrow night. Spring will come, just not sure when.

  4. Oh dear Arty yes indeed it was a honor to have been able to meet Angel Jessie in the furs along with her Momma and Casey. Their love for each other was contagious.

    OMCs we do hope someone identifies that tricolored flower it is gorgeous.
    Finally old man winter is hibernating.
    Hugs madi your bfff

  5. Those are such pretty flowers! We're so sorry to hear about Jessie and send lots of hugs to her Mom.

    an excellent bouquet memorial for darling Jessie! That hot pink azalea is amazing... the ornamental fruit blooms are always a delight in spring...that six-petalled stalk flower looks to be an amaryllis hybrid...can't quite make out the purple mass sufficiently to be sure - and that butterfly is pure joy! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  7. Thank you for the dedication. <3 We really loves that floofy cherry tree blossom, it's gawjuss!

  8. they are all gorgeous and i did not know eucalyptus blooms, they are beautiful and new to me. i hope mama can find a new neighborhood that has as many wonderful flowers in it as yours does now

  9. Thanks for sharing your beautiful flowers and sunny day with us. We don't have anything blooming around here yet and we probably won't see the sun for a few days. They are calling for some freezing rain so we have our paws crossed that it isn't so much that we loose power.

  10. Oh, we just love the white flowering cherry tree!! Maybe you can dig that up and take to your new house....BOL!!
    Happy Friday!

    Wyatt and Tegan

  11. Oh, your flowers for sweet Angel Jessie are just so beautiful. We were so sad to have to bid farewell to Jessie. Way too soon. Soft woos and gentle hugs to her family.

  13. Rest in peace Jessie. Thank you for showing us your beautiful flowers. You always have the best-looking blooms.

  14. You have so many flowers already! I once lived in a eucalypus grove, and I don't remember those blossoms! Your mystery flower looks a little like a "Wood Lily" which is a rare flower out here. The coloring is different though.

    Your iris made my heart sing!

    This was a wonderful tribute to sweet Jessie.

  15. Wow! You've got some amazing flowers! We still have mud and sticks and a cold wind blowing. Not even the pear tree is showing any signs of life.

    We're sorry to hear about Jessie. Wish we had gotten to know her! Sending POTP to her family.

  16. Oooo dat floofy cherry blossom is gorgeous!!! Mama just loves all da colors in the flowers around ya'll. Our Azaleas bloomed several weeks ago and sadly all da bloom are on da ground now :( Mama also loved dat buttie pillar cause you nose she loves a good flutterbye :)
