Flower Friday

Hello, everyone!  It's me, Cammie.  We are teaming up with our friends over at Dory's Backyard for Flower Friday again this week.  We thought we'd see what was blooming along our walk this morning - are you ready to go?

Mom let me choose the route today.  She thought we were going to go through the neighborhoods, but I chose this way instead:

"Oh, excellent choice, Cam!"
"Thank you, Maggie.  I love going this way!"

I do!  We get to go through the shopping center parking lot (where we ALWAYS engage in Crazed River Otter Games -- it's a tradition!) then we get to go into the woods!

"Do you see that, Mags?"
"Yeah.  I think there's something up there."

We kept seeing things that Mom didn't see today.  As we walked through these woods, I kept turning around, looking back.  Mom thought it was a bunny or a squirrel or a turkey or something, but I wouldn't show that much interest in something like that.  The last time I turned to look, she looked, too; there was a man standing in the brush, about 15 feet off the trail.  Just standing there, looking at us.  It was odd.  I stared at him, so he knew not to mess with us.  There's a chance I got an extra treat when we got home.  Especially because it happened again on another part of our walk.  Odd.

Moving on to the flowers ...

Here are some beautiful Kansas Sunflowers!!!





We keep thinking they're done for the year, but then we see more.  We love our sunflowers!

Mom thought we should pose at the Kansas Ocean.

Me and Maggie

We had other ideas.

When we headed up the water tower path, we saw these beautiful NonoMaggienono Berries all over the place:

Latin name:  Berrius Nonomagusnono

For the record, Maggie was very good about not trying to eat any. This time.

"Oooh, what's that red plant?!?"
"I think that's NonoMaggienono Sumac."

That's a wrap for this week! We hope you enjoyed walking with us!
