  3. How awesome. You should make a yearly calendar with some of your faves. I like the firecracker one the best I think.

  7. I love that you're now bringing props on your walks! It occurs to me that not only are you clever with all these, but you never seem to run out of different flowers and plants in your neighborhood! Are you sneaking into a garden nursery or something? LOL

    1. Haha! No sneaking! It’s seriously an incentive for us to venture down new streets and into different neighborhoods on our walks. For the walks we’ve done a million times I’ve run out of new plants/rhymes/captions!

    1. Yeah, love those. I should try to plant some of those in our yard since our front door is orange.

  9. dallied beside this dahlia - that's a good one.
    What amazes me is the variety of plants on your walks. Most homes around here us the same basic landscape plants over and over and over.

    1. Oh, that’s interesting. I hadn’t thought about that before. Yeah, we see a lot of variety here - some folks who plant whatever they like, no matter how much water it needs, and those who have water-wise gardens, plus we have tons of Australian plants here since they do well in our climate. Lots of variety!
