Lately, he’s been struggling on the walks because it’s been so hot. So, we need to take some water with us so he can take a drink every so often. Anything to get him his beloved treats!

Flowers are blooming all over our neighborhood here in Philly, and I really liked this light purple flower we saw at a park. I did a reverse Google image search and couldn’t identify what type it was. Looks like it may either be a geranium or a hydrangea. I’m no gardener, so I don’t know, but let me know in the comments if you do! Happy springtime!
