My Son and I and flowers

Hello all. My Son and I took some pictures this evening, and thought I would share them with you. This one is of me and our dog Chief. A big one I know! He is St. Bernard and German Shepard. Very friendly. Very large! We just love him!
This is my son's self portrait. He loves taking pictures.
And I had to take a pic of my moonflowers tonight. There are 19 blooms on it!! For those not familiar with these plants, the blooms only last one day, and they open up in the evening and last till the next day. Hence the name 'moon' flower. I have never had this many flowers open up at once. I shared another post of this plant here when it was a mere 5 feet long. In a little less than a month it is now 11 feet long!!
This pic is just to show the size of the flower.
And one more pic of another grouping of moonflowers by the house. 4 flowers on this one, so 23 pretty flowers to enjoy tonight and tomorrow! Thanks for stopping by!

Chief is so big and what a perfect name! I had a Great Dane/Lab mix and at 5 1/2 months he weighed 56lbs! Sadly he did not get to grow up, so who knows how big he would have gotten! His sister (who my parents adopted at the same time) was 39lbs at the same age and she ended up at 85lbs! Your son is adorable! What a huge bouquet as well! Enjoy!
