It’s Friday, one of our favorite days. The weather should be a tad cooler (and if we’re real lucky, there will be a spot of rain in the forecast) after temps have been hovering in the 80’s this week. The garden is really coming to life. Next week we’ll be at the hospital visiting patients and hopefully making folks smile. Till then we plan to stop and smell the flowers as the garden continues to burst into color and bloom. Have a wonderful weekend-have you got any special plans?
Live, love, bark! 🐾

Beautiful photo! She’s smelling the flowers great scent.
I think she’s checking for essence of squirrel myself. 😆
So pretty! <3
You’re hoping for rain and here I am wishing it would go away. At least during daylight hours when the girls like to play in the yard on a sunny day.
Have a great weekend! Enjoy your beautiful garden!!
Sorry, rain is rare in this high mountain desert so we never turn it down. I understand that some parts of the country could do with a little less of the wet stuff. The dogs weren’t crazy about walking in it and we had to cut that first walk short but made up for it later in the morning once it stopped. We uprights always want what we don’t have. 😇 Tomorrow the weeds will probably grow a foot with today’s nice shower(s).
I’d be glad to send you some of ours if I knew how!
And I’d gladly accept it! 😍
I can smell the pretty. Have a great weekend.
Happy Saturday, Monika. I bought my own piece of happiness yesterday and bought a bunch of sunflowers. Sat down for breakfast this morning and one was smiling right at me. Patted myself for indulging myself in flowers and made a mental note to plant a patch of these next Spring. I have never experienced that marked in the seasons from winter snow to that explosion of flowers in Spring and it must be quite something. Indeed, something quite extraordinary. The seasons here tend to be less dramatic.
Have my violin concert this afternoon and here I am chatting on the blog as though the rest of the world didn’t exist. I love it, but my time is rapidly running out. Well, three hours til I leave and I can’t practice all that time and I have an hour to practice at the studio beforehand. Not a reaal need to panic and yet there are still a few difficults bars to work on. I’m playing “Minuet” by Beethoven as a duet with my teacher. She’s very good at covering up my mistakes.Yet, I shouldn’t put myself down too much. I’m not too bad.
Have a great weekend! I love your flowers! It is the most beautiful time of year, in my opinion.
That looks like the perfect way to spend the weekend, while resting up for a busy week ahead! We’re expecting some rain and cool weather over the weekend, so we’ll probably be mostly admiring the flowers from indoors. 🙂
Oh, I bet you makes folks smile all the time! I wish I could send you some rain to help cool things off there, but the rains are missing here too! I plan to have a taste of Mom and Dad’s birthday cake this weekend. Tee hee hee!
Enjoy that cake, Valentine. Happy birthday to your ‘pawrents.’ 🎂
The daisies are lovely, and that picture with Elsa is a keeper! I have my last 4-hour bible class at the church tomorrow morning, then home to cut nails on 2 chihuahuas who want to kill me. Sunday is Pentecost! and we are going to a local children’s charity for BBQ! Yum! (Of course the hubby will have to eat before we go as he will most likely be allergic to everything they serve.:( )
what a stunning painting! Mom L would luvluvluv to have a piece of art like that with me and TKS in it of course. Purrs
Thanks! Luckily Mother Nature does the work for us. 😉
On Saturday I will be thanking my lucky stars that I cannot access the BBC so can avoid the blasted wedding at Windsor.
On Sunday I will be ranting that I cannot access the ~BBC in order to listen to the cricket commentary……
LOL Here’s hoping your weekend is wedding free with a topping of cricket highlights. Can you stream directly from their website?
No…it is geoblocked, so need a VPN…they seem to have sussed the one i use at the moment. Occasionally someone will put up a live Youtube screening, but it is usually full of adverts for Pakistani mobile ‘phones and breaks down frequently…
Bummer. I’ve taken a stroll around the BBC but it probably defaults to the BBC America site.
We’re finally at home on a weekend where it isn’t raining (or snowing) – we’re going to get some yard stuff done and just enjoy ourselves.
Don’t forget to relax a bit 😊
What is this “relax” thing you speak of? 😉
LOL…you TELL me! 😊
How are your sunflowers coming? When they go to seed, I’ll fly up there and enjoy.
You’d have to battle the squirrels for them. They manage to always steal them.
NOBODY likes squirrels.
You can say that again!
Sunshine here too, my friends 5 month old Golden Retriever will be here for a week starting Sunday. Should be lots of fun for me and for my girls! Have a great weekend at the Ranch.
What fun for you and the girls! Enjoy a lovely weekend.
Have you not gotten rain? We have had rain about 4 days the last week, what a micro climate!
We had lovely showers last week and are hoping for more today and tomorrow. The garden has come alive. Finally. And of course, so have the weeds now. LOL
Plants look good. I trust you Elsa, although if you really want to chew something I have a stick that you could mess around a bit, Have a great weekend. It’s been raining here..
Ironically sticks don’t seem to interest her (and luckily neither do plants…so far). We have rain forecast as well though I expect you may get a spot more of it than us. Enjoy the weekend!
Akktully this particular stick is sometimes called a Frangipani but it has spent the last two years disguised as a stick
LOL…Elsa must never learn it has any value, otherwise it likely could be fair game. She prefers expensive items like eyewear!
Hmmm … given her other inclinations, I’m not sure she can be trusted around flowers 😉
Kidding! Bear’s my plant eater – he gets every part of the plant and root and leaves the dirt. Ugh.
