Mystery Bush

Bongo by a bushYou see this bush behind me? Well, I told my person she wasn’t allowed to post any pictures of it unless she found out what it was.

I figured I was safe. I knew she didn’t know the name of this bush and I figured she’d never find out. Unless she went out of her way to find a plant specialist to tell her, that is.

But I was wrong. That’s a really hard thing to be. After all, I’m Bongo – and Bongo is never wrong.

Except for this time.

My person got on the internet and looked at all kinds of plant pictures until she found it. The Sugar Sumac. That’s what it’s called. And now I have to let her post all her pictures.

We’ve been watching these bushes for a long time.

Way last winter they got these little pink buds all over them.

But if you don’t believe these were like this way last winter I can prove it.

When the weather started getting warmer all the color faded out of those buds. We figured we’d seen the end of them.

But then something extraordinary happened.

Well, maybe not so extraordinary but I wanted this to sound dramatic.

Okay person, you got your way. Can you put the camera away now?

Wordless Week – Day 3

This wordless thing is getting really bad – especially when all my person will let me post are flower pictures. At least they’re pictures of flowers on my trails. I hope I get out of this dog hotel soon.

Bush with yellow flowers

Each year is a new adventure on my trails, because some flowers do well one year and other flowers do well the next. This year these bushes are filling up with yellow blossoms.

What’s that Smell?

Bongo sniffing his favorite rockThe last few days there’s been a strange smell on the corner of my street. I smell it every time I walk by there to get to my trails.

It’s not like the smell of my favorite rock. I drag my person over to this rock every day when go near it. You see, it’s not quite on our path, but it ‘s worth going out of the way for.

No, this strange smell isn’t anything like my message spots. It’s kind of a girlie smell, but not like any girl I’d want to hang out with.

It smells sort of like perfume, but I sure hope none of my girlfriends wear perfume like that. I prefer a good old strong dog scent to that smell.

My person says the smell is coming from this tree and the tree is probably trying to attract bees.

If bees like the smell of that tree there’s got to be something wrong with them. I mean, who would want to go after that smell?

But maybe those bees are smarter than I thought.

I don’t see any of them hanging around this tree.

They probably found something that smelled much better.
