The Park

Early yesterday morning (Thursday) we went for a quick 'business' walk and then piled in the car to go to our main Park.  SHE wanted to get some pictures of us with the Jacarandas flowering.

Daisy, Bella and Roxy (the Cenotaph...War memorial in background)

Notice Roxy's pose.  She usually throws out one leg....
Then we went for a walk through the park......

Heading back to the car.  That's the Train Station in the background.

Me, Daisy
We had a great time! 
Note: that was a Bougainvillea that we were posing in front of in 'Black dogs and Shadows.'


  1. It looks like a great day!

    Nubbin wiggles,

    Happy Day!

  3. what a great park. Those Jacarandas are just stunning!

  4. My cousins Scarlet and Zoe live in an area where the street trees are Jacarandas ..... It looks so good at the moment!

    We loved your posh park!

  5. That is one GORGEOUS park gurls!! Wows, it is so nice to see things flowering, everything is on it's last leg here.
    Tell your Moms she takes great snaps!


    pees: LOVE Roxy's pose....

  6. what a beautiful park - and those trees are so pretty. We laughed when we saw Roxy's pas - that is the funniest pose ever, Roxy:)

    Hope you all have a wonderful weekend ahead.

  7. wow.. the jacarandas over your side of the world have loads of flowers... we have 2 jacarandas in our garden but we have more green than purple :)

    looks like a very nice place for a walk... Daisy actually smiled! Roxy never fail to make us smile though.. she has that funny dog face.

  8. I just love those beautiful Jacarandas!

  9. We get the lovely Jacarandas in April, but mostly in Phoenix. We're a little colder and they don't do well here (only 40 miles away but we're 1000 feet higher).

  10. What a beautiful park. Thanks for sharing the Jacaranda trees. They are beautiful.

  11. That first photo of you all looks beautiful!! :-D

    I hope you had a great tie hanging out at that awesome park!! Your trees are gorgeous!

  12. What a beautiful park with all those trees!! We have Jacarandas here to - mom loves them 'cos when they bloom they are a reminder that Christmas is around the corner. There was an attempt a couple of years back to have all the Jacarandas in Pretoria (there are A LOT of them in Pretoria) cut down because they are not indigenous but I think the public outcry won the vote - they are just too pretty.

    Have a grrrreat weekend girls!

    p.s. Love Roxy's pose and that last pic of you Daisy...just gorgeous!

  13. What a beautiful park. Love Roxy's pose :-)

  14. That top photo especially is just gorgeous. And if any of those jacaranda petals got caught up in Scottie furs and trailed into the house, I don't suppose SHE would have minded too much.
    Toodle pip!

  15. Perfectly posed. Bet getting those photos took no time whatsoever.

  16. That's a pretty sexy pose, Roxy! Your Jacaranda trees in bloom are just gorgeous!

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

  17. Nice pictures!! Lovin that pose Roxy's got

  18. Thanks for sharing your walk in that pretty park - the jacarandas look lovely. What a beautiful girl you are too Daisy in that last picture :-) Have a great weekend - woofs and licks from Magic xx

  19. That is a cool park guys. We love the island in the pond. Just right up my street to sit on where my peeps can't get me. BOL. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  20. Wow, the jacarandas over your way are amazing! She loves them - they are all in bloom over here too and She dies carry on about them! Great photographs!



  21. There is nothing like jacarandas in flower....making the mom homesick again! What a gorgeous park

  22. Absolutely breathtaking lavender flowers....just gorgeous.
    We are glad we can visit you 3 during our winter so see such pretties. Nearly all the leaves have fallen from our hardwoods and winter is looming.
    Hugs Madi your BFFF

  23. Those sure are pretty trees!

  24. How does your Mom manage three leashes and a camera?

  25. Those trees are absolutely beautiful! And the three of you posting in the park ~ delightful!!

  26. How beautiful your world is right now!! We had a nice day here today, but Old Man Winter is returning to northern VA after his vacation to some place warm!

  27. Awww, my comment didn't get saved. I just wanted to say how pretty your park is... And how the bougainvillea also grows in our country... they're really pretty- as pretty as the lady posing in front of it.

    Huggies and Cheese,


  28. Amazingly beautiful ~ never seen trees bloom that color before. Do they have a fragrance?
    Thanks for being a friend

  29. Your jacarandas are gorgeous. They grow very well here in the Australia of the US--very southern Southern California. We don't have one, but many neighborhoods here have lots and lots of them. The neighborhood I grew up in had them lining the Main Street. Beautiful!

  30. Beautiful photos, girls! I understand pesky flies. Sorry.
