Nature Friday

 We are joining Rosy and Sunny this week for Nature Friday~~

The latest news is that I WAS limpies.  We had an appointment for me to see my vet on Tuesday and on Tuesday, limpies were history so mom cancelled the appointment.   Yesterday, we were back to limpies.  We haven't been walking very much lately but I'm still doing my high fives! 

Miss Molly Butterfly Bush is still blooming~
Miss Violet is still in bloom too.   Sadly, Miss Ruby is history.   Mom will decide next spring what to plant in her place.  
Our pink Asters are in bloom~
The purple Asters are making quite the showing this year!
Happy Friday, everybuddy!
Love ya lots♥

Molly Monday

 Thank you so much for the outpouring of love and all of the hugs that you sent our way.   We appreciate each and every one of them more than you will ever know.   Mackie's dad was a larger than life person and he will be missed by so many for a long time to come.  

We have to share this picture.   It was taken at a barn raising after the work was done and the fun and festivities began.    Every time mom sees the look on his face, she bursts into laughter and that is a very good thing☺

Happy Monday, everybuddy!

Love ya lots♥

Nature Friday

 We are joining Rosy and Sunny this week for Nature Friday~~

It's been very hot this week and mom and I do not like walking in this kind of weather so these flowers are from before the yucky temps set in.

A purple Aster from our garden~

The Wild Asters along our walk~
Lavender from our garden in its second blooming.    The bees are loving it!
We looked this one up and it looks like it could be the Pagoda flower.   It's along our walk and the plant is so large that it is encroaching on the street and it's just beautiful!
This is the White FireWeed and it truly is just that - a weed!  It is everywhere and mom can't rip it out fast enough!
We found cheerful yellow Mums~
Happy Friday, everybuddy!
Love ya lots♥

Happy Labor Day

 Mom works a bit on a puzzle just about every day.   You probably can't tell from this picture unless you bigify, but I am in need of a new tennis ball.  This one is in deplorable condition, mom, and I have no idea how that happened!

Have a wonderful Labor Day and for the peeps in my neighborhood - it is NOT the 4th of July!   Keep the fireworks quiet!  

Love ya lots♥

Off we go~~

We found a Cosmos still in bloom~
The Rose of Sharon's are still flowering away!
The white ones are just as pretty as the pink!
Landlord Bob built a small driving bridge over the end of his pond.   We love the cute guard rails!
Autumn is upon us!

Happy September First!

Love ya lots♥

September Molly

 Yesterday, mom gave me a bath.   I know so many of you don't like baths but I actually like them!

The fan is messing with my longer furs and curls~
My bath was to prepare me for groomies~
Last year, our September was actually warmer than our August!    I'm all set with shorter furs just in case it happens again this year!
Happy Tuesday!

Love ya lots♥

Nature Friday

 We are joining Rosy today for Nature Friday~~

We didn't do too much walking this week due to the wet weather.

The Black Eye's Susans are looking so pretty and so cheerful in our garden~
The beautiful Joe Pye Weed~
The Marigolds are making us dream of autumn and cooler temps~
These Indian Pipes are near Landlord Bob's mailbox.  
This picture of Ghost Pipes/Indian Pipes was posted on the Sleeping Giant FB page~
This poem was also posted and we thought it was just perfect.

Dear followers, we hear your queries ring ��️,
What is this plant, what tale does it bring?
In verse and rhyme, we'll unfurl its lore,
The Ghostpipe's tale, like never before ��.

Hear ye, all naturalists, lend an eye ��,
As we delve in the tale of the Ghostpipe that lie.
Beneath the grand giants �� of Beech trees high,
Grows Monotropa uniflora, under the sky ��.

A perennial specter, it graces our earth ��,
From Asia to America, it shares its birth.
Devoid of green glow, it shies from the sun ☀️,
In the dense forest's darkness ��, its life is spun.

Ghostly �� and waxy, it stands up white,
Though black flecks or pale pink may grace its sight.
And rare of the rarest bear a deep red hue ❤️,
For each stem, a flower ��, a sight to accrue.

With bracts like scales, along its lean span,
It reaches up high, as high as it can.
From five to thirty centimeters tall,
Under the forest's emerald shawl ��.

In summer and autumn, it blooms in glory,
Each flower, a chapter, in its unique story ��.
Post rainfall ��️, they emerge, a sight to adore,
Carrying a secret, folklore has in store.

No chlorophyll does this ghost contain,
It saps food from fungi ��, in sun or in rain ��️.
With roots adorned by cystidia hairs,
It clings to the hyphae in fungal lairs.

A solitary flower it bears, unique,
As the summer days into autumn sneak ��.
Bumblebees �� come, in their humble flight,
Drawn to the spectral bloom, in sheer delight.

Despite its beauty, and allure so grand,
Remember, my friends, do not extend your hand ��.
For in its body, toxins reside ��,
Keep your distance, and let it abide.

From ghostly white to deep scarlet red,
It tells a story seldom read ��.
So marvel from afar, respect its space,
This ghostly resident of the giant's grace.

Happy Friday, everybuddy!
Love ya lots♥
