Serene Scenery Sunday

Woo, everypup and everycat.  It's me - Dave - here with some serene photos for you to enjoy.  Siberian-ly speaking, the photo seen back at this link was mighty serene for me, but anyway... here are some pix for you to get mellow with.

How about we start with a shot of one of our Day Lilies?


Very nice, isn't it?  When Mom was removing the Winter growth from those, one of the dry stems attacked her and stuck her in the eye, so I escorted her when she took that photo.

Dave and the Day Lilies
One false move, and I'm all over you guys!

I think it made Mom serene to have me there for security!  Woo!

Up on one of our rock retaining walls, we have a row of Gold Flame Spirea.  Here's a look at them:

Gold Flame Spirea

I know they aren't gold now, but the leaves will be later on.

We've shown you some members of the Gallery who have watched Dad golf Colbert Hills Golf Course before.  (Click here and here!)  This time, he had some interesting fans following him at the Manhattan Country Club.  Check out this familiar guy!

It's Oswald!  

What's he doing at the Country Club?  Amazing.  Check him out in this next shot.  It's like he's been studying at the Stormy Zoluschka Kryschtal School of Siberian Studies.  He's making a face at Dad!

You can click this and any of the pix on this post to see a larger photo on our FlickR page.

Stormy thought that was really funny.

And lastly, here are two pictures of another fan who was watching Dad.  


A doe!  When Ammy saw these, she thought Dad must have been playing at another one of the courses he frequents - Stagg Hill.  Ha woo.  That Ammy!  Here's another look at her:


The doe made Dad feel very serene.  It made Mom serene to see Oswald chowing down somewhere other than in our garden.  Woo!

Have a peaceful Sunday!


  1. Hi Dave
    We were nice and serene looking at the pretty flowers.
    Then we got onto the bunny rabbit and then the doe!
    Well we bassets are not serene anymore - we are barking and barking!
    Thankfully we are unable to sniff them over the internet so not quite as bad as it could have been.
    love and kisses

  5. Ammy - Oh deer! (Get it?)

  6. Yes, you did show us some very serene pictures. Let's hope the skies stay serene for the rest of the day and night. Does Mom fertilize her day lilies? Ours have very few blooms this year.

  8. Oh deer Ammy, you must have been howling! BOL.
    Pretty Flowers, Mom appreciates seeing flowers in other areas, she can't grow the Spirea here. I think she would like to see the picture when it is gold too!
    Nice job guarding Mom there, Dave.

  12. I wonder if your Dad could pull a Jerry Ford and hit one of the wild creatures with the golf ball? He might get a free day from the Club for bonking a couple of what they consider pests!

    Just a thought.
