Hi there! Mommy said if I want my picture taken with the mums (I still think that’s funny, they aren’t anyone’s “mum” that I know of) then I need to tell you about them. So here goes. She got the pot of flowers last year, set it out somewhere in the yard, the weather got cold, she stuck it somewhere else, found it this spring and dropped it pot and all in the hole in front of the house were she had dug out a bush and they’ve grown crazy big. There, I did it without even taking a breath.
She’s wondering if it will bloom again next year and if she should take it out of the pot and plant it in the ground now or in the spring or if she should just store the whole thing in the shed or what to do with it. I wonder if she wonders a bunch of stuff like that about me.
Then we all took a walk, and this is us turning the corner out of our driveway. Notice anything odd about our mailbox?
Daddy’s here, so I can’t tell you who backed our truck into it and then tried to straighten it back up and got it straight enough so it won’t fall over but it is still the leaning tower of mailbox. Mommy tried to push it but decided it must weigh about 87 tons.
A few houses up the road, we stopped to look at this pretty bug. I wonder if it tastes good.
Anyhoo, there were little bees trying to get the pollen out of the flowers there too, and the butterbug kept moving to a different flower when a bee would get too near. Smart bug!
At another neighbor’s, who we call the chicken people because they raise chickens, we got a picture of this tall plant. It has little purple flowers laid flat against the stem with white parts sticking out.
We’ve never seen a plant like this before and don’t know what it is (which isn’t unusual for us. Do you?
After a great walk on a beautiful, warm, sunny day, our schnauzer flag greets us home.
Do you see how it works for both Halloween and Thanksgiving?
If you’ll excuse me now, I have some running and playing to do with Lucy in our front yard before we go inside for an afternoon nap.
