Animal Wednesday and Tuesday's Walk

Tuesday's noontime walk to the post office was to mail a new quilt top off to Australia for the Quilts Around The World Challenge. You'll have to wait until the end of June to see it though, sorry. On the walk I was really in the mood to stop and smell the roses. And I did just that. The aroma of these beauties was joy to my nose... and eye...
As were these twin beauties...
Then I turned down a new street and found this guy! What is he thinking? What is it seeing?
Too funny!!!!!!!!!
I don't think the people who live here need to worry about
with these 3 guys guarding their fortress...
And this guy?
Well we saw him where the owls hang out last Saturday.
We saw a few owls too but my photos of them were not post worthy.
Next time perhaps.
Happy Bloomin' Tuesday and Happy Animal Wednesday.
Remember to stop and smell the roses where you are! Today would have been my Mother's birthday. My mom had a gorgeous rose garden where I grew up. It was planted in four squares around a central bird bath with a big green
ceramic frog in it.
As little kids Patty and I used to ride our tricycles around it.
Later my children did the same.
Happy Birthday Mom.
