Flowers!

Before it started raining again, we had several days in a row that were warm and partly sunny. I mean the highs were 85! It felt like July and I walked around panting all day and night. We spent a lot of time outside. Mom got annuals and planted pots and did other gardening. I got to cool off in the hose. We took some photos - mostly of flowers. The irises are very beautiful this year (probably all that April rain). They are super tall and have lots of blooms. Today we have five different colored ones blooming in the front garden. Irises have been one of mom's favorite flowers ever since she was a kid.











Gotta zoom!

What a nice garden Rickie. We love our gardens, too. When the flowers and veggies are out Mom and Dad spend more time outside with us.

Beautiful flowers, we're not really into flowers unless we're digging them up but our human says that's what our garden should look like ;-) Dex & Lou x

Beautiful flowers!
Our mom can't leave flowers at our disposal, we like them so much, that we are able to reap and to eat them! =))

Have a nice week!

All the flowers are so pretty. Hope you get some nice spring weather Ricky. We've had a couple days in the 80s and everyone is panting here. We'd love to just stay in the 60 and low 70 for awhile.
