The Pet Parade Marches to Flower Friday

   Happy weekend! It’s time for the Pet Parade and we hope that you will join in the fun. Many bloggers are feeling blog hop withdrawals with the new changes at BlogPaws and their Wordless Wednesday. We understand and have reached out on social media to encourage our pet blogging friends to hop in the Pet Parade! You can join any day of the week with a new hop starting each Friday. We welcome ALL pets whether your best friend has paws, claws, fins, scales, fur, feathers or…well, you get the idea. EVERYONE is welcome. Please help us get the word out so we can all stay in touch and continue to hop by to say “Hey!” to our blogging community.
   We also enjoy joining some of our friends for more theme-oriented blog hops like Thankful Thursday, Friday's Friendly Fill-Ins and Flashback Friday. Today, is Flower Friday over at Living, Laughing, Barking in Our Backyard with our adorable hostess, Rosy. You can visit them and sniff out some other flowery photos post from around Blogville.
   Last week we began showing you some of the gorgeous flowers at Mercer Botanical Gardens in Humble, Texas. There were so many colorful blooms that we had to share more today. Enjoy the quiet beauty of springtime in Texas. 
  If you missed last week’s introduction to these beautiful gardens, visit our post-Mercer Arboretum & Botanical Gardens #TravelTexas. Have a wonderful weekend.

  1. I bet the people of that botanical garden would get a laughing fit when they could see the plants of the mama hahahahaha

  2. What gorgeous flowers! We don't see Borage very often and it just happens to be one of mom's favorites because of it's blue blooms.

  3. We are sad about the WW hop going away, but we have noticed the participation declining. At some point, all good things come to an end I guess. We do like flower Friday and Thankful Thursday, so when they work with our schedule they too are options. Not sure really what the purpose of Pet Parade is, so we have never joined.

    1. The Pet Parade is an opportunity to discover new blogs and follow them on social media. You can enter any post that you'd like more people to see. It doesn't have to be your Friday post. I hope that you join us ♥

  4. Oh the flowers are beautiful, we would love to visit there.

  5. Those are some beautiful flowers!

  6. Those are so beautiful! Since I do not have a green thumb at all, and I do love flowers, I am so enjoying this botanical visit! Happy Friday!

  7. Mom says purple is the new red to her (she is a huge red fan but purple is running a close race)

  10. Thank you for the beautiful flower tour.

  11. We're still waiting for the flowers to bloom here so seeing these is nice.

  12. Those are gorgeous flowers! We finally have a few daffodils popping up! It seems like this spring was a long time coming, and we might have just jumped into summer.

  13. What gorgeous blooms! We drove nearby but didn't have time to stop. I was particularly tickled they pronounce it without the 'H.' Have a great weekend. 🌸

  14. Such beautiful photos! Thank you for sharing (we're just now starting to get blooms), and for letting everyone know about the Pet Parade! :)


  15. We don't do the blog hops all the time, though we do enjoy doing them sometimes. We will definitely be keeping this one in mind, I'm glad there are some other options with WW now going away too. It seems like a few have fallen off over the last year or two so we're glad to see some that keep on going!

  16. Thanks for all the blog hop recommendations! And thanks for co-hosting the Pet Parade. These photos are so gorgeous, I didn't know Texas had so much floral beauty. I always think of Texas as being hot & dry without much foliage or flowers. Guess I was wrong!

I'd love to hear from you! Bark back!
