Buddy Boy And I Take A Walk.

It's Sunday evening, might rain, who knows, looks a little like it could. After supper Buddy and I headed out to water the plants and it was so nice in town, I thought we should take a walk. We made it through most of our town, which is about 8 blocks or so. It has been a beautiful spring, the flowers have been the best I have seen in years.

Buddy is a deal to walk, he pulls and tugs. I am building strong arms. He gets so excited when he sees another animal or even a bird. It's a little tough to hold the camera still when he is pulling me so hard. I did my best.

I am always in love when the spring flowers bloom. They are so beautiful,  after the long dark winter. I don't believe the roses could have one more bloom, there are so many. The colors are so beautiful.We went down to the river, which is still in it's banks. WE have had floods for the past few springs.

My yard is staring to shape up, the floods have done a number and killed a lot of stuff. Since I bought the old place, I have learned what will make it through the floods and what won't. It is hurtful to watch all your work, die when the old Mississippi over flows it's banks. To those of you that do not know, My old house is about 200 feet from the Mississippi. Last year the river was about 6 inches deep all the way around my house. In 168 years it has never been inside. That's good. I pray it doesn't in the future.

Who knows what the summer will bring. I hope we continue to get some nice slow rains. So far it has been a beautiful spring. Please come sometime and take a tour. I will always leave a light on, Buddy will meet ya at the door. Come on over, we'll all take a walk.

Hi Richard! All of the flowers are so very beautiful and I'm glad you're out with little Buddy. He is so cute! I had a little Boston Terrier once and she was just impossible to walk on a leash! She kept trying to shake it off! ;) Sorry about all of the floods your way and the house is looking great. Hope you're doing well.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Hello Richard...What absolutely gorgeous flowers. Oh my goodness! the petunias look regal. So, so lovely. Thanks for taking us on the walk with you and Buddy. It was a delight. Susan

Pamela Gordon said...

That was a lovely walk around your neighbourhood Richard. Thanks for taking us along. I'm glad the river hasn't flooded it's banks. Amazing that your house has never flooded in all those years! Your flowers and roses are beautiful. Happy spring to you.

Betty said...

Hello Richard, Your gardens look lovely!

Gina @ VictorianWannaBe said...

Oh Richard, wish I would have been there to take a walk with you and Buddy boy around your town! Your yard and flowers are looking pretty!
Take care!

Hi Richard & Buddy

I like the cranes on your roof better than anything outside of your house, The flowers are pretty I guess due to all our rain

I wish you was a multi millionaire and could move your house to a better location so you would never have to worry about the old Missouri river again.

I hope to make it over again with Gina before the fall weather gets away.I'll be out of the country in late September and early October, however Gina and I will be there

Greetings from dry California, our lawns are looking so sad. We have been warned about using water (penalties). There you are with all that water in front of the beautiful Mansion! So who said life was fair? beautiful pictures and plants and everything like always. Maria

Lottie said...

Beautiful pictures of your home and flowers! Buddy is so handsome! We had problems walking our dog at first but then a lady at Pet Smart suggested we buy Gentle Leader head harness for about ten dollars. It solved the problem and now we never use it because our dog is trained to walk beside us. Have a great Sunday!

BeachGypsy said...

I was just getting ready to tell you about the gentle lead!! And the post above me mentioned it....let me tell you....i successfully trained very large pulling dogs many times with these....they work great!! Would not be without ours!! And they do not hurt the dogs any way. Good luck!

everal of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very bothersome to inform you. Nevertheless I will surely come again again!
Not often do I encounter a weblog that is both educated and entertaining, and let me tell you, you may have hit the nail on the head. Your concept is excellent; the issue is something that not sufficient individuals are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my quest for something relating to this.
Hey. Cool article.
