Aww. How cute. So true too. If we don't stop and take time to enjoy the small things in life life just would be so boring.

Smart dog!

Now that just plain hurts. My lawn is at least a month away from blooming :)

I'd love to introduce that type of buttercup to my lawn. I wonder if they would survive the winters here.

Hi Cinj,
I know can you imagine life without taking time to smell the flowers?

Hi Tina,
Jack is very smart(-:

Hi WiseAcre,
These buttercups grow wild here and they bloom in the Spring then die. I will look for some info for you. Until then I will post a up close picture of them(-:

LOL! Jack thought they were there just for him to roll in.

Jack looks like he's living the life of Riley! A nap in a field of buttercups looks pretty inviting. I might be tempted to join him if I were there. ;-)

so cute! What a sweet puppy-baby!

we have the same flowers blooming here, and my lawn should've been mowed a couple weeks ago! It's needs to be weed-eated and needs some annuals planted...can't wait!

I'd appreciate getting a close up look. If you can identify them it would really be nice.

I'd have to worry about them being too invasive if they do take here - my Bluets can't take too much additional competition. Since one of my daughter's old boyfriends 'helped' my 'lawn' by putting weed and feed down and mowed the Bluets while in bloom one year they've never been the same.

How darling.

Oh My. That is the best. Wouldn't mind laying there myself.

That was so cute, reminded me of my Mollie, I am big on many nick names and one of hers was Ferdinan because she was always smelling the flowers!~Jacque

Looks wonderful...Jack obviously likes the flowers! Our dogs are just happy when they don't have to tip-toe around the Spring water puddles...rivers...lakes in the yard.

I had so much fun browsing through all the nooks and crannies of your site! These photos are so sweet! I'm a dog, cat and critter lover like you. Spring hasn't arrived in MD yet but I can't wait to sit out on the front steps with the dogs and watch them run around. Bulbs are popping up and I've cleaned out and trimmed beds. I have onions to plant, etc. but we've had rain, rain and more rain. I'm a nurse in a high school and hope to get some things done over Spring Break. I'm crazy about tucking unique things in my gardens and I loved your ideas! I just made a wreath out of a garden hose I wired, forsythia, branches, rusty hand garden tools and a big bow tied to an iron gate. Check out my blog -jennsthreegraces@blogspot
