Flowers for Friday: August Splendor

Balloon flower




Pretty spot to kick back and read a novel amid the lilies.

Gratuitous photo of my dog.
What do you suppose he's thinking?

Have a great weekend, everyone.

"ooooo, I'm as pretty as any of these flowers and so you should feed me..."


Lots of great flower photos Sarah!

Thank you for a big laugh, and I loved it!

Yes, Ms. Toast Burner is right that I could see the nonverbal communitication through his innocent eyes and face: " I'm pretty as flowers? Can I have some treats?"

Mog said...

I think he looks guilty

"Who? Me??"

SpeakUp Librarian said...

Hungry, vain, and guilty. As they say on Family Feud, good answers!

Your dog enjoys the scent of your wonderful flowers! As good as my sense of smell is, I wonder what it would be like to have a dog's nose.......or his hearing for the matter ;)

I also comment here:

I agree, he looks like 'the cat that ate the canary'...or dog should I say?
He's such a cute doggie though!

I received this answer via email:
"Your dog is thinking: "Why does Sarah refer to all her
flower friends by name, and just calls me, 'my dog' or 'my darling dog'? I have a name, too."

All right then, let's just imagine a thought balloon next to him with these words: "RUSTY, my name is RUSTY!"

Hi DeafDude,
I tried taking a photo once with his nose in the flowers but I wasn't fast enough. I like the idea that he likes their soft frangrance. Thanks for commenting.

Hi Jelly,
Rusty has eaten some strange things in his time, ha, ha. Yes, I just wonder what he's been up to or what he thinks he's gotten away with now.
