Happy Flower Friday!

Welcome the Spring/Summer/Early Fall Season of Flower Friday!!
From now until the end of September, every Friday we will be sharing pictures of flowers in our area! We hope, if you get the chance, you will share some of the flowers from your area too! 


On the last Friday every month we will show you flowers, along with participating in FFHT, hosted by Murphy and Stanley (click HERE to read more about FFHT).




 This week for Flower Friday we explored someplace local,  Sequoia Park!


They have great big redwood trees in the park!



Mama and I saw lots of these pretty flowers under the trees!












We found a bench, with clover growing underneath, to sit and enjoy the park noises (kids playing, birdies singing, the wind blowing through the trees)!




After walking around the park, we walked down the street to Sequoia Park Gardens!  Most of the flowers are just now starting to come up.  Mama says they are mostly Dahlia flowers that start as little bulbs planted in the earth. We will come back and update you as the flower plants grow bigger and bigger and get their flowers!





They did have a part of the garden filled with lots of flowers....just look at them all!!!








We hope you feel relaxed and ready for the weekend....thanks for joining us for Flower Friday and have a Smiley weekend!!!

Those trees are amazing Dory. We don't think there is any tree here that is even half the size.
Beautiful flowers too, what a lovely place to visit.
