A good thing, I ♥ our weather and fun at the park

A beautiful blossom from the garden I visited on Sunday.

- Asking my mother, during our daily call, if anything good happened to her that day. She thinks about it and says she loved having her feet soaked. A good thing! I say.

- My afternoon walk was under a lovely blue, cloudless sky with the temperature around 70 degrees. I ♥ the weather we are having this week.

- A studious looking Bulldog trots by going in the other direction at the park, a red ball in his mouth, intent on his destination; his smiling owner close behind. I see them later at the dog park, the dog lying in the grass chewing on the ball; the owner trying to get it from him to throw. :)

I never touch a ball that's been in the mouth of a dog. It just doesn't seem hygienic to me! :D

Lovely photo. I love this weather too!

Yeah_bulldogs are notorious for 'not' giving up their toys! Our weather is supposed to be great here today too; near 60 and SUNNY. Yum. It's luscious out!

That bloom is so gorgeous!

lol @ the bulldog! He must be friends with Riley (we play with two balls so one is always in rotation as he hates to give it up).

I LOVE peonies and a nice foot soak. Thanks,

Joe -

I'd guess it would certainly be pretty slobbery! :)

Yes - I heard it hasn't rained in days in the UK. Good deal.

And congrats on being first!

lg -

We have a day today that is much like yesterday - I hear the park calling!

Ellis -

I like that last line about the poor owner. :) Thank you for my poem!

Talon -

I remember your pics of Riley with a big ball in his mouth. And one that was particularly tattered. :)

happygirl -

Peonies. Thank you - I couldn't think what that flower was.

My mom has chronic problems with her feet and so they soak them for her daily at the assisted living place. I'd love that, too.

I could use a nice foot soak!

The weather has been absolutely beautiful in Atlanta. I can't believe it is so cool I almost have to turn on the heat. I love the picture of the flower.

Fireblossom said...

Our weather is finally nice today, too! I had forgotten what a dry day was like! ;-)

Lovely photo!

I'm constantly amazed by dogs who stay by their master when they are out in public. My beagle is about as perfect a dog as one could want, but she would take off untethered.

Our weather is getting to be more like yours now...I love it!

Great flower pic!
My kids got me a foot bath thing for Mom's Day once- I rarely have time for it tho- Lucky your Mom gets to enjoy one!
Sounds like perfect weather there!
Bulldogs may be ugly, but they have faithful big hearts, n Personality! I used to play ball with our boxer dog growing up- same deal!

Ginny -

One of my coworkers wore a sweater to work yesterday and dragged out a portable heater. :) It was perfect for another walk in the park in the afternoon.

FB -

I'm glad the weather is finally turning around for you.

Riot Kitty -

Thank you - it was a stand alone blossom, too.

Jewel -

My family had a beagle, too - I understand. They follow their nose - something that got him in trouble a couple of times. :)

Snaggle -

You are on your feet a lot, sounds like, so that sounds like a thoughtful gift.

I hope you have a nice Mothers Day, Snaggle.

I like how you put the heart in here. How'd you do that??

Almsot 100 here today, please send 70s. :)

A foot soak sounds great to me.

Jannie -

I'll send you the heart on the email - I copied and pasted it from facebook.
