Hi everyone! It’s Millie & Walter here. There aren’t many new flowers blooming from last week but we have some beautiful pictures to show you.

Let’s see some beautiful flower pictures.

We call this our “School Bus” Yellow Daylily

Pink daylily with coreopsis background.

Here is a picture of what happens after the flowers bloom on one of our plants.

Hypericum androsaemum ‘Albury Purple’ berries

Don’t the flowers behind me kind of look like Christmas lights?
That’s how you do “Christmas in July”!

We hope you enjoyed a look at some of the nature in our yard this week.

Hi everyone. It’s Millie and Walter here. We aren’t spending much time outside today as we are under a heat advisory but we sure are thankful for a working AC system.

In addition to our selfies, we thought we would show you some black and white flower pictures for a change of pace.

Now here are our selfies.

I look good in color or sepia

Being a black dog I always look good in monochrome.

We hope you are enjoying your Sunday and staying cool.

We’re joining The Cat on My Head for their Selfie Sunday blog hop and want to extend our sympathies to the Cat on My Head family as they lost their sweet Mau recently and are dedicating this weeks blog hop in his memory. You should check out the hop to see some of the other selfies. Thanks for stopping by.

I don’t want to forget to show you the coreopsis I’m posing in front of.

I was doing some more super model posing for this picture. Don’t worry, I always get paid well for my modeling work. I hope you enjoyed a look at what is blooming in our yard this week.

Hi everyone! It’s Walter here. We’ve been enjoying some cooler days which allows us to get out in the yard.

Here is my super model pose.

A good stretch will help keep me going.

The weather is heating up again but we should still be able to enjoy some outside time.

Campanula Glomerata

Last but not least is the newest resident in our perennial garden.

Geum – Totally Tangerine

This perennial is supposed to continue to bloom if you regularly dead head the flowers so we will keep you posted on whether it keeps its promise.

We hope you enjoyed a look at what is blooming in our yard.

Hi everyone! It’s Millie & Walter here. We’ve had some scorching hot weather this past week and it’s caused lots of shrubs and flowers to bloom.

Hi everyone! It’s Millie & Walter here. We’re finally getting some warmer weather and some of our trees and shrubs are starting to open their buds.

What should we look at first?

The Korean Spice Viburnum buds are ready to open.

Even though the buds haven’t opened yet the Korean Spice Viburnum sure looks pretty.

Ogon Spirea

This spirea has the tiniest flowers but with so many of them on each stem they almost look like they are covered in snow.

Serviceberry tree blossoms

We were afraid that some of the cold weather we had might ruin our crop of serviceberries this year but the flowers look like they are doing fine.

We can’t wait to see all the fruit on the tree and have it covered with all kinds of birds that love to eat the fruit.

I found a nice stick to chew on.

We hope you enjoyed a look at what is blooming and almost blooming in our yard. With the warmer temps we are supposed to get this coming week we should start to see more flower opening up.

Hi everyone! It’s Millie & Walter here. The weather sure has been crazy around here lately. This morning it was snowing and the snow actually stuck around for a few hours but then the sun came out and melted it all. It was cold and windy though.

There are some pretty flowers around this stump.
I wonder what the neighbors are doing back there?

The area around this stump has some lovely little bulbs that are blooming right now. Don’t forget you can always click on an image to see the full size.

Purple Chionodoxa

White Chionodoxa

Pink Chionodoxa

We also have one of our viburnum blooming now.

These are one of the sweetest smelling flowers you could ever sniff.

Dwarf fragrant viburnum
(too bad you can’t scratch and sniff)

As you can see there isn’t much in bloom right now but our daffodils have buds on them and some of the other spring flowering shrubs are getting ready too.

I always love getting out in the yard to play and sniff around.

The weather is going to be like a roller coaster ride for the next week. There will be some warm days and then a few cold ones (about 20° F or more swings). The cold doesn’t bother us but we hope it stays mostly dry so we can get out and play. We hope all our friends and their families are staying safe and healthy.
