One of the best places to find wildflowers is up by our water tower, so that's where we headed! Oh - and guess who Mom put in charge of keeping the boys out of trouble?!?
That's right! I got to do some husky-herding! It was really fun.
Here's a tiny Aster:
They're really small and colorful and grow all over the place. This one has a bee doing his pollen thing with it:
Maybe the bee gives you some perspective into how tiny the flowers are!
We also saw lots of sunflowers up there. Here's Zim, helping show one off:
Mom said I needed to work a little harder at the "herding" thing. Hee hee hee. Zimmie had fun, though!
Mom said to say "Ah-choo!" after I showed you that and that many of the bipeds out there would understand.
In the non-wildflower arena, here are some very bright red Sumac leaves...
...and here is a pretty butterfly:
I think I better not mention who may or may not have tried to eat that.
Mom said it was time to head back to the house, so I got the boys into formation:
I love to herd!
|"You guys did a really good job!!!"|
It's important to compliment the herdees.
Oh! On our way down the hill to the house, we saw these pretty ornamental fruits...
...and these pretty tiny blue flowers that Zimmie likes:
Aren't they the sweetest little posies?!?
|"Let's go, boys!"|

Thanks for coming on our walk with us! I hope you had as much fun as we did!
