This stuff is growing all over the west side of town!
|"Mmm! Purple! Nice!"|
Apparently, it's called Phlox. Mom wants to get some for our garden - wouldn't that be cool?
One of the neighbors has some gorgeous hot-pink Peonies growing:
|"Oooh! Pink smells nice!"|
They smell lovely, in case you were wondering.
Back here at home, the stuff in the planter on the porch is doing well:
And even though they got pretty pummeled in a recent hail storm, the Gerbera Daisies are making a comeback:
The Snowball Viburnum is done blooming now, but here I am with it before the blooms got hailed on:
|"What? No. I don't have to stick my snooter in every flower!"|
Back out on one of our walks, Mom saw these beautiful Irises growing in someone's yard:
|Deep Purple Irises!|
They were right by the road, and Mom tried to get me and Cam to pose by them.
|"Not feelin' it, Mom."|
"Ha roo woo roo!"
What can I say? I'd rather look at the flowers than at the camera!
I hope you take time to smell the flowers - or at least to enjoy them - in your neighborhood!
