Big flowers around here mean big work for this garden hound! Our weather has been tropical like a jungle the past few weeks, causing all the plants outside to grow like weeds. They look great, but wow are flowers demanding!
We have some nice bushes out front with pink/purple flowers that are real pretty.
Our pots on the deck are really getting huge. If we are not careful, they may end up taking over the entire deck! Yikes!
Mom loves peonies, but we don’t have any at our house. I stopped at a neighbor’s place on a walk to snap this photo. Sadly, they seem to be a bit beaten up from the last rain storm.
All these big flowers are super thirsty, which means the garden hound needs to always be watering them! Notice my head furs? Yep, they are growing too. Mom says my hair looks like the plant behind me! I have a spa appointment next week because my furs are totally out of paw!
Happy Flower Friday! If you have some flowers, or a flower like topic, join my friends at LLB in the Backyard for the Flower Friday Blog Hop.

you look so at home in the Garden, Emma. Bonny, both!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx
Thank you. I like to sit amidst the flowers.
Flowers are a lot of work, but they provide so much joy and color.
We love them, but get tired of watering them all the time.

Great garden tour. We have peonies, while the plants are hardy and return every year, the flowers are rather sensitive to weather conditions.
Mom would like to get Peonies, but not sure where we would put them.

So many beautiful flowers today Emma! Beautiful peonies and the first picture of you smelling the pretty flowers is so colorful!
Mama says my hair looks a bit unruly too..but isn’t that fashionable now??
Bailie always has wild hair and loves it. I prefer a more groomed look on myself, but my spa lady will help me out.

You are more beautiful than any flower.
Thank you. I do think I am pretty cute!
Lovely flowers. But they have me wondering how you keep up with it along with all your other dog sports and activities. You must be very organized.
Right now, we are pretty much at the end of our time with everything. Mom’s business is so busy, she can’t breathe. It will all be better in a few weeks when the market slows. In the meantime, we just plug along as best as we can.

It can be a lot of work to keep flowers looking nice. It looks like you are doing a great job, Emma!
They just drink a lot, and Mom has to lop off the dead flowers. Not being real gardeners having potted plants is easier than a big garden.
Bouncing Bertie says
Those are super lovely flowers Emma.
Best of luck at the spa…
Thank you. I don’t like to go to the spa, but it is necessary to keep up my beautiful looks.
