Big Mistake

Bongo on the trailBoy did I make a big mistake today.

A really big one.

Here’s what happened.

I took my person for a walk and we got to the place where we usually turn around and head back.

It was a really nice day and I wasn’t ready to head back yet.

So I kept on going.

Up the dry wash.

Usually my person won’t let me go further, but today she did.

And that was the biggest mistake of all.

***

Because you know what my person did then?

Prickly pear cactus surrounded by little yellow flowers

She found flowers.

Red Penstemon

And not just a few flowers.

Purple daisy

She found red ones, and purple ones, and yellow ones.

Can we go now, person?

This is getting really boring.

Look Over There

Bongo looking away from a bunch of wildflowersHey person, look over there.

No, no person.

You’re looking in the totally wrong direction.

Bongo with a bunch of yellow wildflowers

Don’t look over here.

It’s over there I want you to look.

***

I knew it!

Yellow flowers

I just can’t keep my person and her camera away from flowers.

Yellow flower

Does anybody want a well used camera?

I’m giving one away.

As soon as I can wrestle it away from my person.

Photobombing the Flowers

Purple flowerIn the spring we get lots of flowers and then most of them disappear for the summer.

And this time of year more flowers show up.

Lots of yellow flowers and a few purple ones too.

Anyone who’s known me for awhile knows how frustrated I get when my person starts taking pictures of flowers.

Well, she did it again.

.

.

.

.

She went after those purple flowers.

So I decided it was about time I do something about it.

What if I…

…photobomb her flower pics.

So I started getting in the way every time my person got her camera out.

Until I realized I didn’t need to do that anymore.

Because…

…an ant had beaten me to it.

Too Many Flowers

Bongo in front of hedgehog cactus blossomsThey’re everywhere this year.

Spots of magenta peeking out from the browns and greens of my trails.

.

.

.

.

.

It’s kind of like an Easter egg hunt.

Hedgehog cactus blossoms hidden in the woods

Little spots of color popping up when you least expect it.

But I’m going to have to practice my photobombing.

Because my person has to get her camera out every time we pass one of those things.

Hedgehog cactus blossoms

I don’t know what she sees in those things.

They don’t even smell good.

And none of my friends leave messages on them.

That could be disastrous.

All I can hope for is that their blooming season is over very soon.

***

Wait! What?

This is terrible!

The hedgehogs are still in full bloom and the prickly pear are already starting up?

Prickly Pear blossom

What am I going to do?

Two kinds of cacti blooming at the same time.

I think I’ve got a lot of boring walks to look forward to.

Time for another photobomb.

Missing the Photo Ops

Bongo profile on the trailWe heard a really bad flute player on my trails today.

She was hanging out with the rock piles.

But my person wouldn’t take a picture.

Something about embarrassing the flute player.

I don’t know why she would have been embarrassed by having her picture taken.

Now if my person had recorded her playing the flute she probably would have hid under all those rock piles.

It would have been really embarrassing.

So we walked on and we saw a snake.

And my person still wouldn’t take a picture.

Something about the snake hiding before she could get her camera out.

She could have just yanked it by the tail before it got away.

It didn’t have one of those rattler things on it that I’m not supposed to play with.

But that didn’t happen.

So what does my person take a picture of?

Penstemon

Flowers!

Do you believe it?

All those good photo opportunities and she takes pictures of flowers.

So I decided I was going to do something about those flowers so my person couldn’t take any more pictures of them.

Help!

Those flowers must be powered by aliens.

Almost an Adventure

Bongo on the kitchen floor looking sadMy person has been glued to the computer the last few days.

Even more than usual.

So I haven’t been having many adventures.

Well, she is still letting me take her for walks on my trails, but she never wants to take the extra time to have an adventure.

So I don’t have anything to tell you today.

The best I can come up with is a soon to be adventure.

And it has to do with flowers, so you know I’m desperate.

They’ve got their mouths open so you know they’re looking for something to eat.

.

.

But what they don’t know is that they’re about to be eaten themselves.

By a cactus!

Hurry on By

Indian PaintbrushI was so hoping that after the first day of spring no more flowers would show up.

But I was wrong.

Bunches of new flowers were on my trails today.

And of course my person had to stop and take pictures of all of them.

Like this Indian paintbrush.

This is the worst kind of flower, because it stands out wherever it is.

.

You can’t miss it, so I’ve got no chance of walking by quickly and hoping my person doesn’t see it.

But I discovered something today.

Something good.

Whenever my person stops to take flower pictures…

Bongo eating weeds near the indian paintbrush

I can usually find some tasty weeds nearby.

And if my person doesn’t want me eating weeds she’s got to stop taking pictures.

Pretty good plan, don’t you think?

Take this white flower for example.

White flower

I had to search a little harder for the weeds.

But I found them.

***

Wait a minute.

Bongo and something white in the bushes

I don’t see any weeds around this strange flower.

What is this flower anyway?

I’ve never seen anything like it on my trails.

My person will want to take pictures of this for sure.

I’d better hurry her along.

Golf ball in the bushes

Maybe she won’t notice it.
