More Blooms ~

I don't have a whole lot to share
but just wanted to stop by and say hi to everyone.
I had an opthamology appointment
this afternoon
and still can't see too good :(
* * *
There is still lots blooming in the gardens
and I thought I'd share a few pics with you.

Last evening I did an adoption for OPR.
Francine was fostering for the the first time.
Eleven year old Zither
stole her heart
and she decided to adopt him.
In rescue parlance,
that is known as a foster failure.
Doesn't he have the cutest
Count Dracula smile?

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I can't believe another week is almost done.
I especially can't believe that it is
almost August!!!
Unlike many of you,
I am NOT READY for fall.
Summer, please don't leave me.
Pug hugs :)

What is that last flower picture?? It looks like a purple jellyfish. The only good thing about August is it's my vacation! 1 more work day....

Such good news for Zither! I too am not in a hurry for Fall, I'm getting to the age where I want to savor each and everyday. Your flowers are beautiful, such lovely colors. Have a great week, Julie.

Oh, what a cute little thing that Zither is!! I would have adopted him, too!
Your flowers are beautiful -- I don't know what happened to mine, but they are not doing well at all this year. Thanks for sharing your's with us!

I'm with you Lauren - as much as I LOVE fall, I'm not ready for it yet - seems like we only started our summer here....Besides, I have to save up my complaining for the snow and cold that will follow so I can go into a full-blown rant. Your flowers are gorgeous - love the hydrangea and allium especially. And is that last one a passion flower??? Beautiful....Yea for Zither....I think! He does have a vampire appeal to him!! Smiles & Hugs - and Happy Thursday! Robin

Great flower pics! Spring, Summer and Fall are all good... it's that ol' man Winter that could go on permanent vacation and I would not miss him one bit...

Courtney said...

You have a beautiful garden. I'm not ready for fall at all. In fact, I'm having school anxiety like crazy. New job and all! I really do love the season, though. That Zither would make me a foster failure for sure!

weaverpat said...

Foster 'failure' would have been a problem here too! Happy Forever Home, Zither!
the flowers are amazing! You must be getting some rain?
Hope your appt. goes well!

Alice said...

Linda said...

Hi Lauren,
Great photos, love all the pretty flowers!
Well, as much as I hate to rush through the seasons ... I am so OVER summer ... Well, really the temps have been just awful this year!
And I get the whole foster thing ... but how is it a failure to give an animal a forever home????
Have a great week.
