Serene Scenery Sunday

Woo, everypup and everycat - it's me, Dave!  For Serene Scenery Sunday, I thought we'd have a look around our yard/gardens.  Ready to get started?  Let's head down the steps to the back yard...

Oh... I know what you're thinking, but Zimmie and I didn't do that. Dad did. I don't get it, but if we had dug up the garden like that, we'd be in a heap of trouble!  Mom seemed real happy about it. Apparently the Snowball Viburnum's days had come and gone, and Dad got rid of them. They saved part of one and Mom dug it in out front; I'll show it to you later this week!

The prettiest blooms out back right now are the "Skidmore" Lilacs. Have a look:

Don't those make you feel nice and serene? I wish you could smell them; they're incredible! If you'd like to see more blooms, please feel free to visit our garden set FlickR.

Let's go back up front. Remember the other day when Mom went out without me and Zim? In addition to buying Zyrtec, she bought some rhododendrons to put in the front garden! Here's a look:

Can you see the magenta plants underneath the Red Bud Trees? Right - the ones that match. They got two of those (they're called PJM Rhododendron) and one that you can't really see -- that one will eventually be red (Nova Zembla Rhododendron).  Let's get closer.

"Look, Zim!  Nice color, huh?"
"Yeah, Dave ... I wonder if Fluffy Black Cat is out?!?"

Something serene for all of us, I guess. Ha woo.

Mom and Dad are having a truck-bed full of mulch delivered tomorrow, so after they spread that in, we'll show you the rest of the bed!  But for now ... time to grab a beverage and get on with the day:

Thanks again to Meeshka for helping get our routine back to normal around here!  That gives all of us a lot of serenity!

  2. The 3rd picture took my breath away! That tree is just simply stunning!!
