Hairy balls and more flowers
Posted by Francesca
We Frenchies really love flowers so the other day, we trotted down to Martha's cutting garden to see what was blooming. There were many lovelyl blossoms to enjoy. It was also a very beautiful day and the bright blue sky made everything look so gorgeous.
1 They don't call these sunflowers for nothing - they're blindly bright!
2 These little marigolds smell kind of spicy.
3 Zinnia flowers are always so festive.
4 Don't you agree?
5 Oh goody! Gomphocarpus physocarpus, or as Martha calls them, Hairy Balls! Ha-ha!
6 This lady bug likes the hairy ball.
7 You have to be careful with these things because they have a very sticky sap.
8 Martha told us about how monarch butterflies travel thousands of miles to Mexico. I guess this one is tanking up for the journey.
9 You know how much I like pink flowers and these dahlias are my favorite.
