Flower Friday And Other Stuff

Hi everyone. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your wilting doggie reporter Chester L. W. Spaniel. 

Wow, has it ever been hot around here! The grass is turning brown and we have to water the flowers every day. Here are a few that are blooming despite the heat: 



Milkweed flowers. Lots of bees but no monarchs yet!


Cone flowers

The hot wind dried up our beautiful clemetis flowers, and the Japanese beetles are busy chewing up the roses, and the birch leaves too.

In other news, this truck rolled slowly by yesterday. It was 90 degrees out! Those poor guys walking along behind the truck on the hot pavement were drawing squiggly black lines all over the road. Ghostwriter said they were sealing the cracks with tar. 

And now I'd like to remind everyone about our Blogville Pawlympics Ear Flapping Challenge. We have some amazing entries already, but need more. The deadline is July 15!

The photos don't have to be recent. This one of my esteemed colleague Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel and me running on the green Spring grass is from a couple years ago. 

I'm hoping my dearest Princess Leah might escape from her tower in time to send in a photo. 

Meanwhile, here's some ear flapping  inspiration:
