Nature Friday

 We are joining the LLB Gang this week for Nature Friday~~

Thankfully, we didn't have to go any farther than our yard to find pretty flowers.   We missed so many days of walking due to the icky heat and humids.

The Chinese Lanterns are turning orange~

The Asters are in bloom~
The cheerful Black-eye'd Susans are smiling☺
The Monarch butterflies are visiting our Butterfly bushes☺
Mom was weeding yesterday and discovered an Orb Spider underneath Miss Violet!  It looks like he's already caught a moth for his breakfast.   He'd better leave the beautiful butterflies alone or else!
Happy Friday, everybuddy!
Love ya lots♥


  1. we think we need a butterfly bush too... that is so beautiful to have a fly in for the butterflies ;O)

  2. Hari OM
    Always a pleasure to walk with you Molly! hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  3. ~ and a most Happy Friday, and weekend to you two lovely ladies ~

  4. Oh Molly and Sue I 100% agree with you about walking in the icky heat.
    We were thrilled to see 7 day forecast of all days in the mid 80's (Not high 90's) and 2 nights with 65 and 62 for a low.
    Love you and all your nature lots
    Hugs cecilia

  5. The are flutterbies that happen to visit our yard but too quick for a pic - so we appreciate yours!

    Once again, the best nature shot is the last one!

    Enjoy the khooler temps!


  6. Your flowers sure are pretty sweet Molly! Hey, we've got a butterfly bush but no butterflies!

  7. A beautiful Summer walk today Molly, and we love your big smiley!!
    We had a glitch with Nature Fridays post today, but it's live now :-)

  8. One of these years we'll remember to plant some of those Chinese lanterns. Oh, and we haven't seen any orb weaver spiders in ages! We think the birdies are eating them.

  9. You take beautiful photos! Those Chinese lanterns are new to me. LOVE the spider shot you got. I've found only 2 in my life! Have a great weekend!
    PS It's a tiger swallowtail butterfly, not a Monarch. ;-)

  10. Beautiful flowers, beautiful butterfly and beautiful Miss Molly. I always enjoy your nature Fridays.

    Have a woof woof day and weekend, Miss Molly. Scritches to you and my best to your mom. ♥

  11. Happy Friday you two!!!
    Lovely flowers (icky spider tho!)
    I wanna that rose colored siding behind the black-eyed Susan's your house!? Pretty!!!

  12. So much nature in your very own back yard Molly. We love the spider!

  13. Wow, how pretty! You are lucky you didn't need to go far. We hope it is cooler. We have never had melon. It is not something Lady likes. Phod wouldn't like it cause he doesn't like veggies! Lee and Phod

  14. Java Bean: "I also try to catch moths in the evening! But I'm not usually as successful as that spider."
    Lulu: "You get fed dinner in the house. Why do you need to catch moths?"
    Java Bean: "It's like an after dinner mint."

  15. Hi friend, Ojo here! Lots of pretty things, including your snout!

  16. I always remember my Grandmother having Chinese Lanterns dried and using them in flower arrangements and how delicate they were. Those butterflies are so pretty. What great pictures. Hugs & Love, Susie & Coco xx
