Serene Scenery Sunday - Orange!

Hi everypuppy and everycat! It's me - Ammy - here with Serene Scenery Sunday. Today's theme is orange! Let's see what we can find!

Our Day Lilies are in full swing. Here are a couple shots of those:

If you look closely at the photo above, there's a bug on one of the blooms.

Our butterfly weed is orange, too! Zim showed you what it was like last month at

The other orange I found was those giant candy corns that are all over our front street. They give us serenity because we love watching the men work and Mom said at least no one is speeding down the street right now and it'll be nice when they're done. I think that means they make her serene, too. I thought since the men weren't out there making noise, that I should go taste one of the candy corns.

"Oooh! Giant candy corn!"

Hmm...

"Ick."

I think we can add candy corn to my list of orange foods I don't care for.

Dave said I should point out that my fur gets kind of orange when I'm in the sun, so you can add me to the orange serene things! (Ohh... and he also said the Day Lilies are yellow, but I'm not a Guide Dog for the Color Blind like he is, so I didn't know and thought I'd leave them in here anyway. Oops.)

Tomorrow, I'll show you me and an orange cat! Really! No Photo Shopping involved!

I hope you feel serene now!
Love,
Ammy

  1. ooooh are we first to c....comment?That is kinda freakish for us!

    My Jeannie was loving the Day Lilies pics. When she first moved to Scotland, and knew nothing about flowers or gardening, she bought some plants which she thought were called Dahlias, at a charity sale for her first real garden.

    She planted them out, and told everyone when they came into flower, to admire her Dahlias.

    But Auntie came up to stay, who knows a whole heap about gardening, and asked where my J's Dahlias were.

    My J pointed to her lovely flowering plants (Dahlias).......and Auntie collapsed with laughter.

    Turns out they were Day Lilies! My J had misunderstood the lady selling them, and thought they were called Dahlias!!

    Lovely photos and I liked your face when you realised the candycorn were not so tasty!!

  5. We'll pass on the candy! The day lillies are spectacular - we have some lillies still not out!
    Our flowers do seem to be behind yours.
    The butterfuly weed is a lovely vibrant orange - that must look really lovely in the garden.
    We can hardly wait for the surpise tomorrow - Ammy and an orange cat!!!!

    ps we would love it if we could all run together although we probably wouldn't be able to keep up.
    We reckon if you guys were with us we could catch a rabbit!
    We have never managed it so far but Bailey was very excited yesterday and very nearly did!

  13. I don't trust day lillies. The Butterfly Weed is so pretty!

    Huffs

    p.s. I am still laughing at you and the giant candy corn, Ammy. Although we don't have candy corn here so I am not sure what that is.

  15. We wondered if Dave helped pick the oranges when we saw the Day Lily since they didn't look orange to us. We're glad he cleared it up though! They are very serene and the Butterfly Weed sure got pretty too. Those tall candy corns don't look tasty but we're glad they make your street serene!

  16. I'd say that you, Ammy, are my favorite orange thing in the entire post. I wonder if regular candy corn tastes better than giant ones. My mom sure likes the regular stuff.
