Flower Friday

Happy Flower Friday!! 
Arty here today to show you some of the flowers we found down by my ocean!

We saw these beautiful purple flowers while we were visiting the Trinidad Lighthouse.

We also came across these beautimous California Poppies!

Pretty wildflowers seem to be everywhere this time of year!

Mama got all artsy fartsy with this cute little yellow flower.

We always enjoy seeing lots of these sunny Carpobrotus Edulis(or Highway Ice Plants) when we walk through the sand dunes on the way to my beach!

Even these cute little sweet peas are happy to look out over the 

Last, but not least, are some Queen's Anne Lace flowers which seems to like the ocean, the woodsy trails and the marshy areas!!

Thanks for joining us for this Beach-y Flower Friday and we hope everyone gets a chance to stop and smell some flowers this weekend!!

Hop aboard and show us the flowers blooming in your corner of the world (If you don't see the link here, please click HERE to go to our Hoppity page)!!


Thankful for Brothers, Thursday

Arty here, on this week's edition of Brian's Thankful Thursday, to say how thankful I am for my most favorite brother,
(and not just because he is my only brother) 
He always has a good cover up plan!

 He keeps me company when I go to the dogtur....and even tries to tell Mama we have other, more important places to be!

He  always reminds me it pays to put a smiley on my face...

Although he may need more practice, he is quickly mastering the famous "Mamastinkyeye"!

Most importantly, he is the bestest sleeping buddy in the whole house!!
Thanks Jakey, for always having my back!!

 We are joining Brian for the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop this week!

Flashback Travel Tuesday - The Minis in the Caribbean!

Since Mama, Mini Dory and Daddy aren't due home from San Francisco until this afternoon, we thought we would show you one of our favorite Flashbacks of a previous Mini Adventure from their trip to the Caribbean in 2015!

When we last left the Minis they were about
to go looking for Mama and Daddy..... 

We had a blast under the sea and totally get why Ariel and Nemo love it so much!

Here is a movie Mama made starring some of our new friends!
You can also go to YouTube by clicking HERE to watch :-)

Texas Flower Friday

Today Mini Arty, Mama and I(Mini Jakey) are going to wrap up our Texas visit with a look at some of the  flowers we saw along our journey!

The hotel had a beautimous gazebo surrounded with rose bushes!

The dwarf bottle brush flowers look like the type of fireworks even the real Jakey would like!

There was a ton of Oleander in all shades of pretty colors!

Of course, this flowering plant can be found all over Texas...

Mama really misses the Crepe Myrtle. While it grows all over the Texas Hill Country, it doesn't grow here behind the Redwood Curtain!

There were a variety of creative plant arrangements around Main Street, Marble Falls!

Purple heart(sometimes know as Purple Queen) plants filled some planters...

...and Hibiscus could be found in other containers!

Lots of little rose bushes were everywhere

We saw some yellow bell flowers

...and what we think is some kind of Trumpet flower.

We even saw some little yellow succulent flowers!

Again...not sure if this is trumpet vine with pink flowers...but it sure is pretty!!

Last, but not least, Mama's most favorite Texas flower....

Breathtaking  Lantana in pink and orange!!

We hope y'all have a Groot-y weekend!!
