Flower Friday

Hello, everyone!  It's me, Cammie.  Today, we are joining with our friends at Dory's Backyard to take part in Flower Friday.

There are tons of blooms in our gardens right now!  One that Mom was very happy to see is our Beth Coneflower!

It's a purple one!!!

It was a transplant from our friend Beth's garden and we weren't sure if it was going to be purple or white. It was looking pretty sad for a while there - it probably missed Beth and the Border Collies - but it's doing great now!

Mom has been making lots of changes in the garden! She took out the pavers that were in the Wildflower Garden (Dad moved those up the hill for her to use in the garden out front), she built a little path to the back garden hose with the pavers that used to be out front (Dad moved those down the hill for her), and she put a bunch of native limestone chunks that Dad got for her in the Wildflower, Bee, and Butterfly Gardens. And elsewhere, too. It was a lot of work, as you can imagine, so she brought in a special supervisor:

"Oh, yeah.  Right there, Dad!"
"Smile, Cam!"

Yes, ME!  Dad and I both were supervising Mom while she laid in the pavers to the hose in that shot.  You can tell we were working VERY hard!!!

While she worked in the Wildflower Garden ...

"Hey, what do you guys think?  Mike?  Cam?  Hellooooooo?"
"Do you hear something, Cam?"
"No ... no, I don't."

Oh.  You can see the Cheyenne Spirit Coneflowers in the foreground - aren't they lovely?  And just to the left, you can see one of the new ones - a Daydream Coneflower.  Oh.  And in the upper left-hand window of the house, if you look closely ... there's Maggie!  She was on Guard Duty!

OK, back to work!

"C'mon.  Seriously.  What do you think of the rocks like this?"
❤ ❤ ❤, Cammie!"
❤ ❤ ❤, Daddy!!!"

As you can see, I'm very good at supervising and didn't let anything or anyone distract me!

We hope you enjoyed seeing some of our flowers today!

  2. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Cammie and Dad what great photos and why in the world would you want to look at gardens and rocks when you have each other's eyes to gaze upon.
    Mom I think you did a great job all by your lonesome you don't need a supervisor. I say give them their pink slips.
    Madi your bfff of course there are no gardeners here so we probably should not have an opinion

  3. Awwwwwww, love the photos of you Cammie and daddy!! What a sweet moment!

  4. It's very impawtant for supervisors to have meetings. And to delegate responsibility.
