Flower Friday

We are joining Arty this week for Flower Friday~

My foot is all better and I"m back to walkies☺
Do you like my new collar?   It's rainbow butterflies!
 Not long ago, Cammie and Maggie posted a picture of the Erect DayFlower and mom said to herself, "We have those too!"   They are the hardest little buggers to photograph!
 There are tons of them at the end of our driveway near the street.  We don't see many trueblue flowers so we think they're pretty special.
 The Phlox is in bloom~
 And so is the Staghorn Sumac~
Our Copper Beech tree is full of these prickly seed pods~
Mom thinks that I may have stepped on one of these pokey pods coming out to do peepee's.    I kept licking my toe until my fur was soaked and I wouldn't stop because it felt good.  She checked repeatedly with the flashlight and magnifying glass and there was no debris between my toes or between my pads.  I have had issues with licking my foot before because I can get bored and I've made a real mess of things and she didn't want that to happen again.  She applied the antibiotic powder and the boot stayed on for 24 hours and I lost interest in lickies the next morning. 
 Look what we found at the edge of the farmer's field!  Mom wouldn't walk over to it because it was surrounded by weeds and most probably lots of poison ivy.   The red is so striking surrounded by all of the green!
When we came home from walkies, mom noticed what she thought was a paper bag in our yard.   She went over to collect it and put it in the trash.  It wasn't a paper bag!   It's a huge mushroom and it keeps growing bigger!
Happy Friday, everybuddy!

Love ya lots♥
Molly

Mushrooms are doing very well here too! Many years ago, Muzzer used to go mushroom hunting with her Nonna. But Muzzer says she does not remember enough about how to tell the good from the bad, so we just enjoy the sculpture that nature makes. No chewing!

Momma says she had one of those huge weird mushrooms pop up in her yard a while back. It was really bizarre!

That's a mushroom? I thought it was a rock or a yard sculpture or something else! Happy Saturday.

We have those little blue dayflowers too. They spread like crazy so Mom is always pulling them up. Mom says they used to have lots of those brain mushrooms when they lived in PA. Here we just have little ones.
