Monday Morning Flowers



Happy Monday!

Hope you had a good weekend!

We celebrated Father's Day with a hike. The rock just to the right of HOB's head is called Lizard Rock. That was our destination! We climbed out on the nose of the lizard and enjoyed the view.


Here are your flowers for the week!

Hope they bring a smile to your face.







The doors we open and close each day decide the lives we live.

I could handle a climb to the lizard's nose! Oh wait, you mean the rock formation? I was thinking gecko...

Nice Father's Day pix. And I love the vibrant first flower.

I'll keep that quote in mind today.

Lizard nose? Was it hairy?

I'm glad HOB had his special Father's Day wishes granted.

Those are really pretty flowers and it did bring a huge smile to my face. I just love flowers, even the darn weeds have pretty flowers. Hope you have a 'yay' week.

I would like to climb out onto Lizard Rock -- and lay there and soak up sun. The Minneaplis summer has been disappointing!

Awesome pix! Very nice post, simplistic yet meaningful. You need your own gallery to exhibit those photos...

Powdered Toast Man said...

There better be a whole slew of lizards when I get to the top of that rock or I am going to throw a fit.

Waseem said...

I like the idea....I like the first vibrant flower.
