Flower Friday

We are joining Rosy and Arty for Flower Friday~

Mackie is helping me search for pretty flowers this week.  She didn't bring any treats, Mackie, so stop worshiping her!
 We have seen this wildflower all summer.   It starts out tubular and eventually, the tube bursts into fluff.   We had no idea what it was so mom asked her very knowledgeable herb friend, Miss Jan, and she said that it was Lactuca Virosa, which seems to be in the wild lettuce family.  
 Mom treated herself to a checkered pumpkin~
 And we found Holly with berries in our back yard~
 The sunflowers aren't smiling any longer.   They have dropped their heads.   We do see a lot of birds darting in and out, especially goldfinches.  They are the sweetest and prettiest little birdies!
Thanks for walking along with us☺

Love ya lots♥
Molly and Mackie

Here we are, behind again on decorating for Halloween. I like it when the stuffed witches come out. We have some good conversations then, And we have a very erudite scarecrow!

We love the gold finches too. When they're not eating from our thistle seed feeder, they're eating the seeds from the coneflowers.

That is an interesting wild flower. We love your fall decorations.

What a great walk and Hello Mackie!! We are just catching up on all our favourite blogs as we have been busy catching up on business work since we got back from Vacation.

We love your pumpkins and I cannot believe you have berries already on the holly. Ours have not appeared yet! Hugs, Susie & Treacle xx

I'm sorry the sunflowers aren't smiling anymore. But the good news is that the pumpkins will soon be here!

I bet that the Goldfinches think that the sunflowers are still smiling :)

Sue said...

We have a little flock of goldfinches coming to our feeders. They're like little flying Christmas ornaments.

That puffy white flower is very pretty. It makes us think of a very full white dandelion:)

We love your checkered pumpkin. Just don't let Mackie mistake it for a soccer ball - BOL

Hope Mom had some treats ready for you when you got home.
