This week's Camera Critters has a floral theme. All sorts of weird critters have sprung up in our park....a peacock showing off....

....a beaver building a dam....

....a butterfly being pretty....

....not sure what the bear is doing....

....but....OMD!! Look at the size of this squirrel!!

And check out his evil eye!

People come from all over to see the award winning floral sculptures in Forres!

Check out the other Camera Critters here, hosted by Misty Dawn.

Hey there! I was glad to get your comment. I haven't been posting much due to some IRL personal issues... but hopefully I'll be back online in the next few months.

I still get RSS feeds of your posts and love hearing what you and the beagles are up to!!!

Eric said...

Your skies looked bluer than mine this week and your park flowers are mazing. I've decided it's like Spring Watch on your bloggie and I'm partial to the new inclusion of the Rosie Belly watch!!

Wiry weekend my friends Eric xxxx

Amazing. I Like it all. Beautiful post.

Gennasus said...

That's one scary squirrel!

The last sky photo is my favourite. Eyecatching clouds.

Sue said...

The sky pictures are great, and the park, too.

Do you have an estimate on the number of puppies, yet? Samba didn't show at all till the last two days. Two vets told me she wasn't pregnant.

So many beautiful pictures of so many lovely things. I DO like the dogs, though . . . did they bark at the squirrel?

Joy said...

Scrumptious little beagle belly!

i beati said...

wonderful photos

Petey said...

Rosie, your belly couldn't be any cuter! We loved the flower animals especially the peacock. So creative. Now Rosie, make sure you're getting plenty of naps and lots of treats. Make the boys carry your extra heavy tennis balls.

Your concerned but loving hubby,
Petey

Julie said...

I loved the flower critters and your dog is lovely

Amber and Nala said...

Those garden creatures are very neat! :) Love the peacock one. Sweet girl is getting bigger....how exciting!

Kisses,
Nala

Cookie and Cinnamon's Mum said...

Love the photos of topiaries! I want one of those in my garden. Seems like Rosie is doing well :-)

Honey the Great Dane said...

Ooh - love the pictures, as usual! Especially the one of the pink & purple sky with the black leaves silhouetted in front - so pretty!!

Rosie - I want to ask you a question - how do they know that you're pregnant for sure? Coz I read about this thing called "phantom pregnancy" where doggies think they're going to have puppies and their tummies even swell up but there is nothing inside! My human says maybe dogs can get ultrasound scans too - is that true?

Hey - have you guys seen my video of me meeting Cookie & Cinnamon??
I wish I could meet you in person too and play with you on your wonderful beaches!

Slobbers,
Honey the Great Dane

Chester said...

Great pictures. Mom says she just wants to rub Rosie's cute freckled belly.

I'll let her rub mine since she can't get to hers.

Chester :0=)

Carolina said...

I love the skywatch photos! And NOT a collage. Have to say I like it better this way. Although I do like your collages too of course
;-)
Those flower animals are wonderful. And I was brave and biggified. Aren't ants impressive?

Good luck and a cuddle for Rosie. Not long now...

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

please give Rosie a wee kiss from me! She is looking so blooming!

I have been quiet as we are making the most of the warmer weather, so not been on the computer too much.

But my Jeannie was soooooooooo pleased with the wonderful card you sent her! The Kilted Man......she says Hubba Hubba! She saw some real live ones yesterday, she tried in vain to capture one, but was unsuccessful 'cos my Dad said she could not bring him home!

We posted about your Kilt Card today........on my blog, we are now an X Rated Blog though!!!!!

lotsalicks, Marvin xxxxxxxxx

oh and love from Jeannie xxxxxxxxx

Life With Dogs said...

I have been away too long, but what a time to return. I so badly want to walk our dogs through those gardens and see their reactions!

Samantha ~ Holly and Zac ~ said...

Those floral displays are very impressive. It must have taken them ages to do.

We are on the new computer at last, ummm... but it is taking a while to get used to it...lol ( actually it may take a loooong while to get used to it..hehe)

We hope it sorts out our blog problems, it has been very frustrating on here lately.

We hope you all had a great weekend. :-)

We should be able to keep up bettter now, we hope! :-)

Samantha ~ Holly and Zac ~ said...

LOL... how many We's is that! haha
