Serene Scenery Sunday

Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  Zim here, with this week's fix of serene scenery!  Let's start with some garden pix, shall we?

That volunteer pansy Ammy showed you last week has another bloom on it!

Second bloom on volunteer Pansy

Oddly enough, it seems to be doing better than the pansies did when they were up in the mailbox planter.  Ha roo roo roo!

The rose bush Aunt Janet sent us back in '07 has a bud!

I'll do my best to protect it from Oswald.  And his wife.  And the twins they apparently had...

How about some Minuet Weigela?

And here's another look at the Miss Kim Lilacs:

Can you smell them?  They make Mom feel very serene!

Mom also took another picture of one of our favs - the Snowball Viburnum:

But uh-oh!  Check the sky behind them!  Here's a better look:

OK... maybe they aren't too serene, but Ammy wanted me to post the picture.  How about a nice sunset, instead?  We haven't shown you one of those for a while!

Ahhh!

Yep.  That's better.  The close of a sunny, beautiful day.  And you know what I was doing earlier, right?

Zzzzz..... sunshine..... zzzzz....

Now that's serene!

Play bows,
Zim

  5. Viburnum - Mom can't get enough of those - she wants to get one too.

    Another perfect day in Kansas - we will be deck-sunning too.

  6. We are all feeling very serene over here in Scotland now!
    We are glad you liked the music to our video - we thought that was quite relaxing too!
    We loved your sunset - hard to pick a favourite as we love lilac - we also thought today it is a pity we cant send the scent too!
    Enjoy your serenity!
    love and kisses

  10. Jan is such a murderer, the only way we could post flower pictures would be to take them at someone else's house.
