Flower Friday

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie!  Today, we're joining with our friend Dory and her brothers to bring you Flower Friday! This week, we're going to take a look at some of the gorgeous wildflowers we see on our walks. Ready to look around?

This is a beautiful time of year here in the great state of Kansas - it's peak season for one of our favorites -- Sunflowers!

Did you know Sunflowers always face the sun?

Did you know, given the opportunity, Siberian Huskies will always try to snarf something?  Way to score, Cam!

Here's a look at a hillside we saw this morning.  It's just packed with wildflowers!

I saw these wildflowers growing in an empty lot yesterday and stopped to check them out:

That's a brief look at what's blooming in our neighborhood!  Hop on over to Dory's Backyard to see her Flower Friday - and to see a list of the other bloggers who have joined up!

Have a great Friday!

Yours sincerely,
