It's so 'fun' to take Harpo on walks. I use the term 'fun' loosely. I enjoy getting out and strolling around, I enjoy how happy Harpo gets to smell new things and pee on new things, but I guess part of that 'fun' is also mixed with annoyance at how crazy Harpo walks because of that excitement. Harpo LOVES! walks, okay what dog doesn't.
I wanted to go take some pictures of these beautiful flowers I found last year that I just love. And I've been looking forward to them blooming all summer. Their peak blooming time was probably a week or so ago. It'd be right now too, except it has been so hot lately that a lot of plants are starting to wilt if not watered. It's crazy how just 3 months ago this spot on this neighbors lawn was just freshly tilled dirt with little fences around it so no one would walk on it. But I knew.... I knew what was lying beneath the surface, and I knew it was going to be beautiful come this time.
Now last year I called up my mother trying to describe this type of flower to her, she is super smart with plants and flowers, but explaining things over the phone isn't always easy... for me. We did land at the possibility they are Indian Paint Brushes, but after looking those up they just don't have the full green leaves like the ones in my photos. Maybe my mom will have a better idea once she sees these photos. Or if any of you have a better guess, please do leave it in the comments.
