Our Walking Week - The Round Up

Last week we joined  My GBGV Life and Cascadian Nomads in their #DogWalkingWeek celebration. The idea was to think of ways to get out EVERY day for a walk and an adventure. Now admittedly we are very lucky because Mom takes us out and about just about every day BUT to stop it becoming boring she we set ourselves a little challenge day.  It can be anything from finding some yellow flowers, looking for butterflies, seeing an eagle or even looking for a 'lucky penny' someone has dropped. They are just small challenges but they make each walk interesting and different.

To celebrate the end of the walking week challenge we challenged ourselves to find some some fall colored leaves - pretty easy right - NOT !  Like many places the trees around here are still green and the few that are losing their leaves - they just went straight to brown. We spent two hours wandering around in MY park and found just one lonesome tree that has a "tinge" of pink to it. Not that we cared one bit about what color the leaves were - we just had to best two hours of sniffing any doggie could want :) Thank you to My GBGV Life and Cascadian Nomads for hosting such a great week.
Maybe they are over there!
Will yellow flowers will work Mom?
I'm stumped - where are all the fall leaves
Finally - a hint of pink on 1 whole tree!


  1. I think the leafs are being very lazy this year and taking their time to fall off !
    But, your photos look great as always

  2. shall I send you some colored leaves? butt I'm afraid they are brown too till they cross the big pond. the yellow flowers look great with your fur, maybe you can chase the flowers around like leaves? have a beautiful friday!

  3. It's not easy finding pretty leaves around here either since we are surrounded by Palm trees. You guys are the best posers

  4. We are almost in peak for our leaves here in MA! So beautiful, we hate to see them fall!

  5. LOL we got plenty of leaves we can send you from over here. Loving our Fall weather today as it sunny and warm. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  6. We have a little more color here, in New England, but not as much as you would expect...

  7. We guess that the Bright pretty Colors are still hiding under the Summer Green in your area... We are getting lots of colors .. FINALLY..
    PLUS we just found TWO MORE... SMALL Apple Cucumbers... we didn't pick them yet... hoping they will grow BIGGER in a few days...

  8. Your Autumn is looking a bit like ours. We only have the occasional tree change colour. We suppose you'll go back in a few week and it'll be a riot of colour.

  9. Our crabapple tree is turning and dropping leaves too.

  10. LOL! Sounds just like our post, the leaf fail that ended up being a boat watching tour instead! Thanks for joining our hops!

  11. I bet you will find some soon. The trees still look beautiful and so do both of you.

  12. Autumn is such a beautiful time of year. Give it a wee bit more time, Reilly and Denny. You'll see your beautiful leaf foliage!

    Love ya lots♥

  13. You should come to our house! The trees are just starting to look GOOD!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  14. I'm sure you'll get some color soon. You just need the cooler temps to hang around a bit, and that will get the color bursting! Love the yellow flowers on the ground.

    We didn't make it out and about 7 days, but we did do 5 out of 7! I thought that was pretty good for us.

  15. Our leaves are still green. Of course it wuz 90 today.

  16. Yep, ain't no fall colors here, every thingie is still green!

  17. OMD - we just LOVE LOVE LOVE the stump shot - so good!!!

    What's up with the leaves anyway? Ours are all still green too. It really seems late. Mom says we probably won't get much color and they will all just fall and be brown:(

  18. In my opinion you guys had the best walks ever! Good job so what no colors! Love Dolly

  19. I spy more fall than we have here! You are so lucky!!

  20. I really like your it's the little things ideas! I am definitely going to use those for my "I don't wanna" walking days. And I am so glad you found that slightly turning tree! :)
