Posie Pix Monday

Ha roo, pups and kit-cats! Zim here again with the wrap-up on the blooms in our garden! Now where was I yesterday? Oh, yeah. Right about ... here:

We can see everything from the deck - the sunsets, the golf course, the rolling hills ... and our garden! Let's look at what's blooming down there!

Here's a little Daisy that Mom thought was sweet:

I like that bug on the one petal. Speaking of bugs - here's another one:

That guy is on the
Butterfly Weed. And speaking of butterflies ... check this out!

Pretty cool, don't you think?

Here is a collage of some of the other stuff down there:

Clockwise, starting in the top left: Rosebud, Rose of Sharon, Crape Myrtle

I walked around helping Mom take the pix, but she didn't get any of me in the yard. Something about trying to take pix of the posies and making sure I didn't try to roll in something funky after my bath.
Me? How does she get these crazy ideas?!?

How about a couple more Rose of Sharon blooms? These are the white, double fluffy ones:

That's about it. Some of the day lilies are still in bloom, but we didn't get any good photos of them.

Thanks for joining us in the garden! I hope you liked looking around.

Play bows,


  1. How beautiful!!! I am so envious of your green thumb!!! Mine is sooooo black!!!!

  2. You are looking most calm for a post bath picture.

  3. These are some beautiful flower shots!
    You are looking great after your bath too Zim.
    We did get our feet wet at the waterfall yesterday and today we got our entire bodies soaked.
    We have never seen so much rain!!
    We wished that doggie had been Marvin, that would have been great.
    We bet he would have been keen to go on our expedition!

  4. Hi there Zim,

    We loved the flower pix, especially the butterfly on the butterfly weed. That one is so beautiful, they all are. Your garden is so nice.

    Thanks for sharing. :)

    Have a great week.

  5. Oh Posie, as in flowers, we thought the AO4 had to form a posse to catch a culprit or your Sibe stardom got to your head and you now needed your own posse, we would have joined. Our reading skills need some work.

    Very nice photos, especially of poor Zim drying off, your posse could have saved you.

  6. Very pretty!! So glad the Butterfly Weed is doing so well. Love that Rose of Sharon bloom.

  7. Woos Zimmy! Nice garden pictures, but so sorry about the bath, I had one last week too. It is much too hot out here to go out and eat the flowers.
