Serene Scenery Sunday

Ha roo, pups and cool cats. Zim here with Serene Scenery Sunday. Storm thought we should share some of our Fall color with you, so let's get to it!

Here's a look the the White Ash:

Not white... but I guess I won't go there. Oh, yeah. Those are my feety-feet. I was having a serene moment on the deck. Want a closer look?

How's this? Yeah, I was just chillin' and enjoying the scenery.

Here's a look at the Purple Ash tree.

I'm no Guide Dog for the Color Blind, but not only does that White Ash not look white, that Purple Ash doesn't look purple to me. Excuse me a minute, readers. [Yes, Storm? It was earlier? Yeah, OK. Well, it's not now. Why not call it a Green Then Purple Then-- HEY! HEY! Leggo of my...]

Hi everypuppy and everycat! It's me, Ammy! Stormy said I could finish out Zimmie's post for him! Isn't that sweet?!?! And she strongly recommended I stick to the "
serene" part of Serene Scenery Sunday. Yes, Stormy!

How about a look around our backyard?!? Here's a collage of me touring the gardens. That tree in the middle is the Purple Ash Zimmie told you about.

Here's a leaf collage:

The really brilliant reds (and the tree I'm sitting under) are from the Amur Maples. I love the color AND the fact that the Amur River runs through Siberia!

Here's something that really made all of us feel serene this week - an award from our dear friends Martha and Bailey!

WOWZERS!  Thanks, Basset Babes!

They made it for all of their friends and we just love them to pieces and are really honored to call them "friends" and accept the award! Thank you, Martha and Bailey!!!

We had some really gorgeous sunsets during the week, too! Here are two looks at Monday's sunset; first a panoramic look:

...and here's a close-up of the colors:

Isn't it stunning? Here's the sunset from last night:

It was a great way to finish off the week!

That's it from me (and Zim). I hope you have a tranquil, happy Sunday. Remember to smile - you'll feel it all the way deep inside!

  2. Oh my goodness - so many lovely pics to comment on.
    We just loved your feety feet shot!
    Both of the collages were stunning - we just love the autumn colours.
    They make us feel serene and we just loved those sunsets!!!
    Gorgeous. We never get those great colours here.
    The sunsets are better the further north in Scotland - the Dughallmor Beagles seem to have some pretty stunning ones.
    We are happy to see you have our Award - it was the Purple Hatter who made it for us as a surprise - we are not so clever!!!
    We love it and love being able to share it too with all our Bestest Pals.
    Now we are all chilled out we might have a nice glass of wine.
    love and kisses
    Martha & bailey xxxx

  6. Zimmy, what is it with you and your tootsies hanging over the edges of the railings? I am remembering that correctly, aren't I? It is usually you in those photos we see? You certainly have some excellent photos this week. Hasn't this been a wonderful fall? I can't remember one that was so colorful in recent years. Momma went on a long picture taking walk this morning and I will hopefully post some of her photos this week. You red heads did a great job with SSS this week. Thanks!

    Never mind smiling - you made us laugh! Thanks for that!
    We think your mom should make a white ash quilt and a sunset bag (or the other way around) Those pictures are out of this world!

  21. I think those tree naming people need to get their eyes checked. Just a thought.

  25. Nice job finishing up the post Ammy, but I do want to talk to Zim.

    Zim, thanks for your comment about my white socks. Your feet look pretty white too, but I do have a few white socks tricks and I will post about them soon.
