Tiptoe Through the . . . Wildflowers

We make lots of jokes about the hu-dad mowing our field every month or so.

Let's just say we are in the "or so" range.

    Nice flowers! And we love the color contrast of your floofs against that green green grass!

    What a great field. Just beautiful. I hope the grasshoppers pop up every now and then to amuse you.

    But at least you have some pretty flowers to sniff in the meantime!

  8. Sagira on August 1, 2011 at 6:38 pm

    Still looks pretty though. šŸ™‚

    If we had such lovely flowers in our lawn – we’d leave it alone too!

    take care

    Heh. Mom finally had someone mow the lawn on Saturday (why didn’t she do it, you ask? well…. our lawnmower has been DOA for a long time now, and the guy from whom she was going to borrow the lawnmower apparently felt more comfortable having his own guy use it rather than Mom – I guess the guy didn’t want to answer to Dad when Mom showed up with a few less fingers or something…) because she was starting to lose us again. Now she can see where the rodents are digging holes, and she’s about to (and I quote, because I have No Idea What She’s Talking About) “go all Caddyshack on their rodent butts.” Um. Yeah. We’ll be heading your direction when we flee from the crazy woman! šŸ˜‰

    Ooooh, warm snowflakes. Can we have some of those?

    It’s all OK, if he mows, we wouldn’t get to see such a sweet pic of The Herd walking through the pretty flowers.

    Have a great week.

    Then you’d miss all those pretty flowers. I’d say keep it like it is–mow whenever!!

  14. Kari on August 1, 2011 at 7:36 am

    We think it looks pretty šŸ™‚


  15. 24 Paws of Love on August 1, 2011 at 1:42 am

    But you look so pretty surrounded by all those wild flowers! Tell hu-dad to hold off just a little longer. šŸ™‚

    Hmm…husky lawn mowers…that’s a first šŸ˜‰
