Walking With the Dogs Around Ferriere-Larcon Part 1

This bank of roses smells heavenly!

The dogs and I go for a walk most every day if it's not raining.  We do not like to walk in the rain.  This has been a very wet spring and early summer here in Ferreire-Larcon.  While most people have complained, one of the things it has been very good for are the flowers; especially the roses and lilies.

Calla Lilies.

Roses and Lavender nearly cover the sidewalk.
The verges of the road are overgrown with stinging nettles.  I first ran into these little lovelies in Northern Ireland while weeding the garden.  Ouch!  Not only do they sting, but where they touched you remains numb, but painful for several days.  I don't know if they irritate dogs, but we avoid getting close to them on our walks.
