Flower Friday




Today we are joining Dory for the last Flower Friday of the month of April.

On our last Flower Friday, we showed you Mom's pretty orchids.  There was a BIG one and a little baby one. The baby one was just starting to bud.


So today, we want you to see how pretty it is with four gorgeous blooms.  Hmmm, looks like there are some new flowers there too.




Mom loves Calla lilies and spotted these pretty pink ones at the garden shop yesterday.  Of course, she HAD to have them.  But when she got home, she checked online to see if they were OK to plant where we play (and might try to taste them).  AND she found out that they ARE indeed toxic to animals. So the lilies will have to be planted in the front flower beds where we don't get to go.


Thanks, Mom, for taking such good care of us.  And we promise not to go out through the front door:)

Those are so beautiful! (As are both of you!) Your mom is smart to put them out front! That's part of the reason our Lily of the Valley are in our front yard!
Have a happy weekend!

Oh, such pretty pretty calla lilies!! Momma LOVES callas too. We have some yellow ones in our front flower bed, and we can't wait for them to bloom.

Oh they are gorgeous and the color is breathtaking. It is too bad you can have them in your area but just think how pretty the will be when folks walk up to your front door.

Happy Friday to you. We are having snow today, so I won't be out taking pics of my tulips. If I hadn't already posted, I'd be joining you by posting photos of my four orchids that are blooming. I've never been able to keep them alive before, though we did have Cymbidium Orchids outside year round in Ca. Hope you all have a fantastic weekend.

We're glad your mom checked on the flowers. It's good she'll be able to enjoy them in the front yard while you get the whole backyard all by yourselves! Have a great weekend!

Collie Lilies and Or Kids.... what a Grand Combo THOSE are.

onespoiledcat said...

Oh they ARE pretty - Mom has resisted getting any of them (the calla lilies) since they are poisonous and I am outside but I doubt I'd be interested in them since I'm basically a GREEN GRASS EATER! Anyway, best to be safe.

Love, Sammy

The pink Calla Lilies are gorgeous.

C.L.W.STEP said...

That's some good advice about the calla lilies. Thanks. Oh, I'll tell you a secret: ghostwriter can grow all kinds of stuff in the outside garden. But forget about indoor gardening. Fail epic!

FiveSibesMom said...

So pretty! I wish I had a green thumb, but I sure do love looking at flowers! And Ciara and Lightning - you both look gorgeous!

Marg said...

Those flowers are so pretty. The orchid is really pretty. And you two Woos sure look good too. Hope you all have a fantastic week end.

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

They are really beautiful - But I had no idea they were toxic to pups, thanks for passing that along!

I hope you all have a good weekend!!

Hey, you should at least be able to sleep in a flower bed, cause it's a bed!

My Mom loves to see flowers blooming. They look beautiful. Now you two keep away from them

Dory and the Mama said...

What a great Mama you have...she takes great care of you!!

Mama just LOVES the pink Calla Lillies!! We have white ones growing wild everywhere up here, but no pink ones!

Thanks so much for joining Flower Friday this week!!

Smileys!

Careful, those callas can really take over. But the pink ones are SO pretty!!

Wyatt said...

Love those Calla Lilies! We bought a pretty yellow one today.

Happy Flower Friday!

The Daily Pip said...

Love calla lilies, too. Our tulips are just starting to bloom. Hurray!

Charliedownunder said...

Crikey .... they are very pretty, aye?? AND ... they do look good enough to eat so I s'pose it's a good idea to put 'em somewhere that you can't get at 'em?? I'd eat 'em for sure.

Ruby said...

OMD, Ma loves the lilies too! And that is why they are in 'jail' behind the doggie gates! For SOME REASON, she just doesn't trust me! the nerves!
Anyhu, you guys are lookin' mighty fine in front of those blooms!
Kisses,
Ruby ♥

Beautiful flowers and two beautiful huskies!! We have to be so very careful of what we plant...both of the girls love to hang out in the garden and I am always keeping a VERY watchful eye to make sure they are not getting in to anything...or chewing on anything!! Happy Weekend!!

Our #1 thinks that pretty much all lilies are toxic to pets, which is a real shame.

Beautiful orchids!

Woofs,

Molly said...

Mom wishes so much that she had the knowledge and patience for orchids. They are such beautiful flowers and so are calla lilies!

The Florida Furkids said...

No lilies here either.

Ellie and Allie say thank you for stopping by their Birthday Party!

You mom is smart to check to make sure that plants are safe for you. Our pawrents are careful with that too although we have never tried to eat anything other than the grass in our backyard.

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Ohhh such beautiful flowers!!
love

KB Bear said...

Your mom has a green thumb! What pretty flowers. I'm glad she takes such great care of you two. We all love you!

The Runner brought home cut tulips and irises today, to help me think of springtime. But it was a day too late for flower Friday :)

Priscilla Phang said...

Oh no! We didn't know lilies are toxic to animals. Mom loves lilies and always get some from the florists, but she just promised she won't get them anymore.

Sue said...

When the pups were born, we had to move several plants to a dog restricted area. Now I check before buying. Lats week I saw a gorgeous tree that I wanted with big beautiful flowers. I read that all parts of the tree are toxic, so I passed and will have to just enjoy it in pictures.

Scary how many things are toxic to our fur babies!!!
