"OK, let's have a look around!"
I'm going to share photos of the blooms on one of my very favorite bushes with you. We call it our "Skidmore Lilac" because we started it from a root given to us by our friend Deb Skidmore; it only seems fair! Here are four photos for you:
Don't they look pretty up against our house?
They round out the southeast part of our garden. (If you click here, you can see what the bush looked like a short couple of weeks ago. It's on the left side, behind Ammy.)
Let's go in for a close-up...
Can you almost smell them now? Ahhh... they make our mom feel so serene!
Let me turn things over to Dave -
Thanks, Stormy and woo everypup and everycat. As Mom's Guide Dog for the Color Blind, I just can't get enough color! We've had some spectacular sunsets lately - here's what I'm calling the best of the best:
Let's see what else is full of color around here. How about some Texas Quince? That's still blooming!
"Hey Quince guys. I'm from Texas, too!"
I like that red. The Japanese Maple tree by our front door is a really great red, too. Here's a look at that:
Look at all those rich colors! And the blue sky. Woo. Oh - and there's a birdie on the roof, for those who would like to stare at him.
While we're out front, one more photo. This is one of our Lily of the Valley plants:
They're one of Mom's favorite flowers and always make her feel real serene when she sees them. We also have some pink ones there that Mitch and Maggie sent us, but they aren't in full bloom yet. We'll make sure we get some good shots once they pop open!
I think that's it for me and Storms. We hope you enjoyed the return of Serene Scenery Sunday. Tune in tomorrow for Ammy and Zim with Serene Scenery Monday.
(And tail wags from Storms!)
