Mayor Furter aka Frankie sent some flowers for The Flower Show, so I thoughts we could start with them. He even managed to arrange a butterfly for our viewing pleasure.
Blanket Flowers. I am going to have to insist that we grow some next year. They are drought tolerant so they should be a welcome addition to one of our flowerbeds and they looks so cheerful.
Speaking of Frankie he has two gorgeous WIVES, Ruby & Penny and they brought these along. Sheesh who knew doggies could be so small. I thinks Scylla is as big as they are.

My girlfriend MoMo lives in Australia. Guess what, their seasons are opposite ours in the States so while we are headed for a LONG HOT SUMMER they are getting ready for winter. MoMo sent some gorgeous flowers to share.
This is a Christmas Cactus.
The leaves on the Coleus are gorgeous notice the pretty colors and patterns, but the delicate blue blooms make this plant a real winner in my book.
MoMo blogs at Mieow with help from her SS (Secretary Slave).
Bob and Sam blog @ Play Safe Dogs and Bob (Roberta) sent along one of the best looking dogwoods we have ever seen.
blog as they have some terrific tips on keeping safe.
Gizmo, Bart, and Ruby (Rottrover) have some of the most amazing flowers. They lives in California.
Beavertail Cactus Bloom
I thinks these cacti and the succulent are absolutely amazing. Mommy says that some types of cacti you can eat. She got some at the grocery store one time for her and the boy beans to try and she said it was good once you got past the stickers.
And Sammie brought a whole field of wildflowers with her.
Sammie & Avalon live in Northern California, and they have been exploring their own backyard. From what we have seen of their blog they live in a beautiful area and we are looking forward to seeing more of their adventures.
Jonesie is President of The Society of Feline Gardners and blogs at Cory Cat Blog. She sent us some flowers and they also did a post so be sure to check it out. There are 9 cats and their woofie Grete, + their humans of course.
Aren't these columbine lupine, and poppies gorgeous?
