Seeing Beautiful on Flower Friday - The Rainy Day Edition

Lately,  we have been having lots of rainy days.  Mama says somebody named El Nino is visiting this winter and bringing lots of rain. 

This will be great for all of the spring flowers, but now we need to watch the radar to sneak outside in between the rain showers to go potty (we are not water doggies at ALL). 


The sun peaked out for a few hours this morning, and Mama took pictures of this beautiful (but not real) flower.
 This is how we usually have our pictures taken, in the natural light. Lately though, it has been dark and stormy making it more natural dark than natural light. This makes it beautiful outside, but we have to get creative inside.



  We are taking advantage of this by making Mama practice taking pictures of us using other kind of lights (beside the sun) to make us look beautiful! That's why you are seeing lots of twinkle lights in our pictures lately.



 Mama knows we don't like the flashy in the flashy box and tries not to use it unless absolutely necessary.  She has been resorting to drastic lighting measures so she doesn't have to use the flashy.




Like putting twinkle lights in my tutu!!! 
Good job Mama!!
(don't worry, these lights don't get hot and I get LOTS of treats for modeling)

Thanks so much for joining us for January's Flower Fri......


DORYWAITDORYWAITDORYWAIT!!! 
I need to ask Miss Mabel a question....

Mabel, would you and your monkey like to share a float with my monkey and I for the Valentine's Day Parade??



Happy Seeing Beautiful on Flower Friday!!
 We hope you all get to see some beautiful today!!!

Oh Dory, it is lovely to see your pretty indoor pictures. But you are also lucky that you don't live in NE Scotland as you would have been crossing your legs since Christmas! Finally it has stopped raining today, at least for the moment….
Toodle pip!

Crikey ..... inside or outside?????? Doesn't matter Dory ..... you look beautiful anywhere. Your Mom is VERY clever, aye??
Best of luck Arty. How could she refuse??

Emma said...

Dark and dreary raining days really make for challenging blog photos. Hopefully you will get a rain break soon. That El Nino thing is messing up our weather too, keeping it far too warm. I don't think anyone is happy about El Nino visiting.

Love the last two pictures!

I am having a similar problem. By the time I get home from work it's dark, so we are having difficulty getting new pictures! (And we are bored with taking pictures inside!)
