Flower Friday on FFHT

 Happy last weekly Flower Friday of the Summer! Although we love the summer with all it's beautiful color, we love that the days are getting cooler and are hoping the rain isn't far behind! 
After today, we will be moving our Flower Fridays to the second Friday of the month.  Luckily we can find flowers here on the Northern Coast of California most of the year, and we encourage you all to join us!!


 Today is also FFHT Friday!! Where we take the excerpt given to us by Murphy and Stanley and incorporate it into our post! 
To read more about FFHT visit Murphy and Stanley by clicking HERE of on the FFHT badge above!



This month's excerpt to add is:
"And that's why my toes turned purple . . ."  which leads to today's story......



It all started when we headed to Sequoia Gardens to see what looks to be the last Dahlia blooms of the summer...




As you can see, many of the flowers are getting a bit ragged along the edges




Some are still thriving, tho




  and there are even some with a few buds left!





When Mama and I got to the gazebo, she asked me why my pawsies were were a funny pinky purple
Hmmmmmm, that is a very good question, Mama!

 We forgot about for a bit as we gazed at all the beautiful flowers!
Some with pointy leaves



Others with rounded leaves



 Such rich and beautiful colors




Most of them were a pretty purple-y....WAIT!!!



MAMAMAMAMAMA....
This is purple Flower Fairy dust!!! From all these purple-y pink flowers I have been walking in!!!



 And that's why my toes turned purple . . .!!!
Thanks so much for joining us on our Sequoia Park Gardens walkies! 




Here is a video of our walk showing all the flowers we saw!

It's such fun to see the imaginative posts bloggers write for FFHT. We love your purple flower fairy dust and the photos. Don't forget to wash your paws so you don't track up your mom's carpet. :)

We loved seeing all the pretty flowers! What a nice place. Ghostwriter said it reminded her of the Horticultural Gardens at Niagara Falls, Ontario.

Your flower photos awe me with their beauty. I am so jealous that you'll have flowers all winter long. Please share them with us! It's even greater that your flowers have Purple Flower Fairy Dust. Wow! You are lucky.

The dahlias are so incredibly beautiful!

The dahlias are lovely and we think that is a good reason to have purple toes. We bet they smelled good to.
