Monday Morning Flowers With Bonus Dog PIcture.

Happy Monday to all my Blogging Buddies!

I hope this day brings you a wonderful sense of happiness.

It's Monday!

How does your week ahead look?



Here are your Monday Morning Flowers!


OK, OK, so this next one isn't a flower. Some would call it a weed. It's still a wonder, don't you think?


Bonus picture of Peanut Butter, E's fabulous dog. He is a gentle giant!


Now may every living thing,
young or old, weak or strong,
living near or far, known or unknown,
living, departed or yet unborn,
may every living thing be full of bliss.

My week ahead doesn't look nearly as pleasing as your photos. Peanut Butter is quite handsome.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Last photo is definitely not a weed!
And sorry the duck was a little 'deformed.'

What a great looking dog. He looks smart and kind of regal in that photo. For all I know, he chases his own tail and eats his poo, but you made him look like a college professor.

Maggie said...

Beautiful pics! And PB is gorgeous!

Also? LOVING the cow pic in your header! I collect cows so I'm rather smitten with your whole deal right now.

Always lovely! Is the second photo fuchsia? My mom always loved them... it makes me think of her.

Old Kitty said...

BB gorgeous flowers as per normal!!

But you know Mom is an animal freak she said she could just eat Peanut Butter up!!! What a beautiful animal. What breed is he?

Hugs Madi and Mom

Tabor said...

Love the flowers...but that dog is certainly petable.

Nat said...

Great pics to start the week....Happy Monday, Betty!

My week ahead looks fairly uneventful to be honest, but that could all change :-)

I agree, a weed is only a weed if you dont' want it there. We all love this long grass at our house, we pretend it's a caterpillar...

Life is all about perceptions. Thanks for the reminder.

Sadako said...

Aww! Wonderful pics.

DrSoosie said...

thanks for the uplifting photos. I really needed it this morning as one of my patients who is near and dear to me told me his wife was just diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. I felt devastated and your pictures gave a minute of joy.

TS Hendrik said...

I would never call it a weed. Those are my favorite. Thanks for another Monday boost.

Aging Mommy said...

Thank you as always for the flowers and the grass stalk is just lovely.

Your dog looks like he is bored with the whole picture taking thing!

liz said...

How big is he?

Talli Roland said...

Happy Monday, Betty. Your posts always make me smile. I love these lovely flowers.

A girl needs 2 Talk said...

Bet, my dear, I have a question today. HOW do you find so many different flowers for us EaCH TIME? Has there never been a moment when you have been tempted to steal from a previous Monday post and hope we'd never know? Your pictures are fabulous!

Happy Monday, my girl!! :)

Lourie said...

We are laying low this week. We have doctor appointments and housework to tend to. The weekend is a mini family reunion. And by mini I mean microscopic as my family is HUGE and would require a hall of some kind. Haha.

That dog has the most lovable face!

blueviolet said...

How absolutely beautiful!!! And the pup is precious!

Ann said...

Monday's are always much brighter since I started reading your blog and getting my weekly dose of pretty flowers. I don't mind weeds at all, I think some of them are very pretty.
Peanut butter looks like a sweetheart. Such pretty eyes.

Melly said...

Gorgeous flowers. Cute dog!

Joann Mannix said...

As always, Betty, thanks for the beautiful flowers. And the loveliness of certain weeds are some of my favorite plants in the world.

Peanut butter - I LOVE peanut butter! What an appropriate name for this beauty! He looks like a gentle giant!

Jimmy said...

Thank You Betty,

As always beautiful flower pictures and Peanut Butter does look like a loveable character

Copyboy said...

I'm in advertising so I need this flower power day to keep me going for the rest of the week. BTW...love PB.

faye said...

Wonderful photos for the start
of another week.

Peanut Butter should be gracing the cover of a doggie magazine.
Really outstanding.!!

Sarah said...

Awesome pictures. Have a great week!

Baby Sister said...

Beautiful pictures!! I love fuchsia and echinacea...

RawknRobynsGoneBlogWild said...

The weeds a wonder. I wonder about it, and about Peanut Butter. I love the pictures, as always.
Happy new week.

Julie said...

Thank you, BB...you put a smile on my face!

H.Toufga said...

You always amaze me with your positive spirit in all your posts ...Keep up being great

SquirrelQueen said...

Beautiful flowers and definitely not a weed. A weed could never have such graceful curves.

PB's eyes are so pretty and seem to be so wise, he is a beauty.

ethelmaepotter! said...

Peanut Butter is so perfectly named - he actually LOOKS like peanut butter!

The weed is gorgeous. I think even dandelions are beautiful.

My week ahead is regrettably going to be filled with hard work and pain, as I'm still struggling to get used to my new job. But I also get paid this week!

That dog has a lot my favorite colors in his fur...

Lindy MacDuff said...

Wow, those are vibrant flowers! Peanut Butter looks very wise and mellow. I'll bet he's a protector.

gayle said...

Beautiful pictures!!

Green Monkey said...

WHAT a gift you are Betty!

Daisy said...

Thank you for the flowers. They were wonderful. Absolutely love Peanut Butter's picture. He looks like he has something to say! :)

Shan said...

Beautiful flowers. Are those fuschias in the middle? I had a gorgeous hanging planter full of them once, but they died a steamy death while we were on vacation. Aside from the look of them, one of the things that drew me to them was the name on the tag at the store, "Dollar Princess."

sherri said...

here late to get my flowers, love them. that dog is highly adorable.

BLissed-Out Grandma said...

What a great feature, and great photos. Great way to start the week--with a gift to your readers!
