Wildflower Monday

Hi everypuppy and everycat. It's me - Ammy! As I said the other day, we've seen so many beautiful things on our walks lately I just HAVE to show you! The following wildflowers (etc.) are from a walk Mom and I took with the boys. Are you ready to get going? Let's head out!

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?!?

Me.  Ammy!

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?!?
