July Birthdays on Flower Friday!

That is how fast June went, don't you think??
Happy July 1st!! 

Let's see who we have on the birthday calendar this month:
 Percy and Merci, both from Jan's Funny Farm are celebrating special days this month!!

Mr. Reilly from Cowspotdogs also has a big day coming on July 19th!!
Happy Early Barkdays to all and we think your assistants should celebrate the whole month with you!!
Do you have a birthday that we don't have on our monthly calendar? Email our assistant at 
bethblog(at)ebchristians(dot)com so we can get you on the calendar!

Not only is it the first of the month it is FLOWER FRIDAY!!
Happy Flower Friday!! Here in the USA, Monday is Independence Day! We hope your peeps get to stay home an extra day or two and you get extra playtime! We also hope that you get extra snuggles during the loud booms that sometime happen this time of year. Around here, we pay the TV and Radio EXTRA LOUD so Jakey doesn't get too spooked. 

Anyway, I thought, with Mama in Texas with Arty, I thought would stay close to home (so Daddy doesn't get worried) and show you our Hydrangeas today!
For some reason, they are blooming...and blooming..and blooming...well, you get it, there are tons of flowers!!

It seems as we have twice as many blooms this year than we had last year!!

...and just as one flower reaches maturity, another baby is born!!

They start out a pink color...then turn more blue
and then when they are fully mature, they turn purple!!

Hydrangeas are very interesting, don't you think??

We hope all those in the USA have a very safe and boom-free July 4th and everyone has a pawsome weekend filled with sun and fun!

Thanks so much for joining us for Flower Friday this week, feel free to hop aboard and show us what flowers you saw this week!!

Those are SO beautiful! We love Hydrangeas. Mom tried to grow some, but someone named Thumper (long ears, cotton-like tail, hops real fast ...) ate them. ATE them!!! And she even caught him doing it. Did she tell him "no"? No. She said he was "adorable" and "how can I get mad at a bun-bun?!" Honestly, I need to invest in some bunny ears!
Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

Awesome hydrangeas!!! June did pass by very quickly - we are hoping this weekend flies by too, almost to the point we don't even know it has happened:)

Love the Purple!!!! Mr Bailey used to bark and bark at the fireworks, but they don't seem to bother him anymore. Mabel will be barking though!

Hailey and Zaphod and their Lady said...

We are likely having a mail strike here so we are going to have to use e-cards this month.
Your flowers are beautiful as always.
Hailey will hid in the closet tonight when the fireworks go off as she has the past week and Phod won't notice.
Happy Canada Day!

Jans Funny Farm said...

Thanks for the reminders. Now if we can just remember to post on time.

LP said...

Your hydrangeas are beautiful! Ours are also abundant this year. Our Mama thinks the final colour of the hydrangea has to do with the soil they are planted in...very rich soil produces darker shades and less rich soil produces lighter shades ...Not sure if we should believe her...

Your flowers are lovely. ♥ We will try to get photos to everyone in time for the pawlympics.

KB Bear said...

You really know how to make a photo of a flower into a work of art. Those are glorious photos of your beautiful flowers. Thanks so much for sharing them with us.

Somehow, despite my best intentions, I forgot it was Friday today! Darn. I hope that I remember next week because I want to be in your hop!
