Flower Friday

We are joining Dory once again for Flower Friday~

The day lilies are in bloom!
 Coral Bells are really hard to photograph.   It must be because they're so small.
 The neighbor's coral bells photographed better than ours.
The is a photo of our Rugosa rose with leaves.   The gypsy moth caterpillars are horrible this year.   They're eating all of the leave on this rose and on our birch tree and they're starting in on our maple trees.   We're worried that we're not going to have shade if this keeps up!
This is one of the caterpillars happily munching away~
 And this is the poo mess that they leave everywhere.   Mom gets the broom out 3 times a day just to try to keep up with it!
 The Black-eyed Susans are coming into bloom~
We found some Crown Vetch on our walk~
 And Yarrow~
 And the Koosa Dogwood is in bloom~
Hunter's mom posted a photo of Beard's Tongue and we were so grateful.  We have this plant growing in our garden and mom forgot what it was called!
We found a bag from McDonald's that somebody tossed out their car window~
 Mackie found a newspaper along the way.  He's taking it home to read later☺
Happy Friday, everybuddy, and Happy July!

Love ya lots♥
Molly and Mackie

  10. Most of our flowers are cooked now. The temps have been in the high 90s for a couple weeks. We're really enjoying yours.

  11. Such pretty flowers! We haven't had many caterpillars around. Yet. We're checking our milkweed plants every day for them!

  12. Happy July to you! Loved seeing your flowers; we don't get the caterpillars, but do have Miller Moths that are just big and ugly and everywhere. Of course we've had tons of baby birds that are leaving quite a mess too. Thanks for sharing; have a safe 4th.

  14. Such pretty flowers. We have many of the same ones here. We're glad we don't have those caterpillars around here. They sure would make a mess of our yard too.

  15. We love these pretty flowers. We can almost smell them.

  16. Dear Molly and Mackie,

    Your yard is very pretty! Also, Mackie, it is good to be a Dog with a Job! Perhaps you can deliver newspapers!


  17. I hope those moths dont eat all your beautful flowers!

  18. We love all of your beautiful flower pics...and we especially LOVE the ones of you two!! Happy Weekend!!

  19. How interesting. We never even knew that CAT-er-pillows did pooh....But of course everyone does it!! Now, that McD's bag was a REAL find. Glad you got to check it out and then read the news paper! BOL. Hope your Saturday is a good one too.
