Buddy And Some Blooms

Yesterday Buddy and I went for a walk. Half way through he began to pant with his tongue hanging out. Well by the time we were a little close to home his tongue was dragging the ground and he was leading the way home. He couldn't wait to get inside to his water. Upon entering he laid down for me to remove the leash and went to the bowl and drank - take a breath - drink more - take a breath - and drink some more before laying down right by his bowl. I enjoyed the walk. He'll get used to it and love it.


Begonias getting leggy. I'll cut them all soon and set out new starters from the cuttings.



The Johnsons Blue Geranium FINALLY.

This blue baby looks so lonely. Maybe more will bloom soon. I will be getting me more of these seeds.
Happy gardening fellow bloggers. Hope everyone has a fabulous day.

That's funny about Buddy. Our little dog, Pablo probably would pass out from the heat right now.

Your blooms are nice today. I've never tried to root begonia.

Buddy reminds me of my Max. My Minnie has lost lots of weight since her diet. She loves to eat. She would be the same way on walks. I just let her run around the yard for a bit now that I have one!!

We take our Little Buddy out only at night when the temperatures have dropped a little. This Florida summer heat can be so hard on our pets. (and us) Pretty blooms, I appreciate your visits!

Buddy does look worn out, but I bet he enjoys his walks. Your garden is looking great!

It's funny how dogs need to get in shape just like people. Soon enough he won't want to stop walking.
Pretty flowers you've got blooming :)

Hi Becca~~ Your doggie is a cutie-pie and your flowers are lovely. The true-blue of the Bachelor Button is a rarity, isn't it?

Everything is looking pretty even poor little Buddy. The pecans around here haven't started falling yet but then the squirrels maybe packing them away before I can see them ..lol
hugs, Cherry

Buddy sounds like our dog about walking in the heat. Thanks for sharing your flower pictures. I have a lot of dead heading to do in the garden when it cools off some. Hope you have a great day.

Poor Buddy. I agree, you might have to take water on walks.
My flowers are all leggy too. Just another sign of summer coming to an end.

Denise said...

Buddy is adorable Becca, and also enjoyed the photos of your flowers. Lovely variety. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving those nice comments.

Hi Becca, I saw you had visited us yesterday and I too checked out your blog. I thought I had commented but I am not seeing it:( As time goes on I think I forget more than I remember. Not a good thing. Love your little helper. It has been so hot for dogs and humans alike and you are even further south than here. My helper is BJ, he too literally collapses after being outside. Too old for walks now though. Actually I love it when they lay down and rest-less tripping over all the dogs (4)! Yikes! Thanks so much for stopping by and for liking the blog. I don't usually track the follower gadget but enjoy meeting new folks who stop by to say hello. I like your blog too as you seem such a nice person as evidenced by all your nice comments.

A lovely collection of flowers.When there is the first flower it is always special. I am sure the little bush will stretch out and make many more! Buddy has the right name and is a cutie.

Teresa said...

Pretty blooms! Thanks for sharing them. Buddy is a trooper. Imagine walking on a hot day in a fur coat. Bet that water tasted sooo good.

Sue said...

Our dog likes to drink lots of water, too. I enjoyed your lovely blooms. My bachelor buttons have been finished blooming for awhile.
