Serene Scenery Sunday - The Red & White Edition

Ha roo, pups and cool cats! Zim here, with another Serene Scenery Sunday. This week's theme - red and white! Let's get started!

We have a really cool Japanese Maple Tree by out front door. The colors have just been incredible this year! Here's a little collage I put together for you:

Aren't the reds intense? You can click that, if you'd like, to go to our FlickR site and see more.

Let's balance that out with some white; here's a look at our Mums:

And even more Mums:

We like these because they look like small snowballs - promises of cool things to come!

Let's get back to red! We've shown you our Burning Bush before, but once it sheds its gorgeous red leaves, it gets these vibrant red berries:

Aren't they cool? The birds really like them.

Did the red and whites help you feel serene? How about one more dose?

  2. Hi Zim,

    The Japanese Maple tree is so pretty! The leaves were so vibrant! Mommy also likes the mums. They are so nice to put different colors together as well.
    And of course, your photo with Ammy completes the pretty post. =) How do you do those wonderful pictures? We love them a lot.

  11. Mum is going gaga over the Japanese Maple. She loves it, almost as much as she loves the picture of you and Ammy.

    Hey Zim, I'm going to get a new collar. What colour do you think I should get?

  28. Hey Zim,
    What a shocker. We only have one mum and she's a peep. You imply you've got mumS and that they're little white puffy flowers. How does a flower do all the stitching for bags, cooking, laundry, cleaning, feeding, treating, beer fetching, etc.that mums are expected to do in our revisionist fallback to the 50s world?
    We've kinda thought of red as a warrior color but white is peaceful; like white doves and white flags.

  29. Wow! I've never seen a Japanese Maple so red! I do think my favorite red and whites are the ones in the last picture though.
