Serene Scenery Sunday

Hi everypuppy and everycat! It's me, Amber! I get to try my ...paw at Serene Scenery Sunday again, and I promise no small 's' storm clouds this time, OK? OK! Zimmie said maybe I could show you some of the things from the garden this time and that sounded like a really good idea, so I thought I'd go with that!

Here are some petunias!

Hanging Petunias

They hang on the underside of the upper deck, much like Bart. :) Mom also has a few pots of them on the lower deck; let's look at one of those:

More Petunias

Which color do you like better? (You can click any of these to go to our FlickR album for a larger view, if you'd like!)

Right in front of this part of the deck, in the garden, is a rose bush Aunt Janet sent us a few years ago.

rose.... bud

Isn't it pretty? Oh - and Mom said that is the one picture in this post, first on our blog, that was taken with her new camera! Yea!

One of our Rose of Sharon bushes is blooming, but not the others.

The first Rose of Sharon this season

The white ones bloom later - we don't know if it's because they're younger, in a little bit different part of the garden, or are a different variety. Maybe all of the above! We'll show you those when they bloom.

We also have some Becky Daisies blooming:


Here's a closer look:

Daisies close up

We used to have two more big bunches, but somebunny ate them. Hrumph!

Right nearby, we have something else Aunt Janet sent - a Butterfly Weed.

Butterfly Weed

I think this must be different from the other weeds in the garden, because Mom doesn't say bad things about these! :)

And last, but by no means least, here's my FAVORITE part of the garden:

Amber.  :)

Getting to PLAY in it! Ha roooooo! That's what makes me feel serene! I wish you could all come over and run, run, run in the garden with me and then we'd all feel serene!

  16. We love all the flowers. The darker petunias are prettier to us. Love the daisies. Mom wants to know how your mandevilla is doing. We have two, one has flowers, one doesn't.

    Your photographer does a great job.

    woos, the OP Pack

  17. Very pretty flowers. We'd post some of ours but Jan kills everything! The only flowers we have out there are a couple of vines in bushes that Jan planted in front of the porch several years ago. But the seeds never sprouted. So she can't figure out why they are suddenly on the side of the porch in bushes.

    She's glad to see them but her mother gave them to her a couple of years or so before she died. And she left us 3 years ago this Sept. So ....???

  18. Beautiful, Ammy, every last bit of the garden, including YOU!


  19. Very beautiful! I love all those flowers! I like the second petunia. :)

    Running around the yard is definitely the best part! I love to run!!! :)


  20. Very nice photos Ammy! Your mum's new camera is very good. My favourite petunia is the purple one.

  25. Oh, yes, running in the garden is really cool. Not that we have a garden, we just have wild areas.

  31. oh lovely pics. Excellent quality photos, so clear!

    Your garden puts ours to shame......ours was looking ok, but sadly the weeds grow quicker than the blooming plants!

    (oh Ammy "blooming plants" ......that wasn't supposed to be a joke, but I guess it could pass as one!!)
