Serene Scenery Sunday

Woo, everypup and everycat!  It's me, Dave, here with Serene Scenery Sunday! This week, one of Mom's favorite sets of bushes are in bloom. They always make her smile! They're right by the door we go in and out of all the time - here, take a look!

Aren't they pretty? I like the color. Zim likes the way they smell AND that his kit-cat pals hide out under them. He likes to stick his snooter in there so he goes around smelling like lilacs all day. That makes Mom hug him even MORE, and she buries her nose in his fur and goes, "Mmm.... Zimmie, you smell soooooo good!" and she's all serene and stuff.

Another favorite is in bloom this week, too - the Lily of the Valley!

Mom carried Lily of the Valley in her wedding bouquet, so I'm told, and she really likes these. We also have some very, VERY special PINK Lily of the Valley:

Our really nice friends Maggie and Mitch, the coolest Airedales ever, sent us those! (See the full story here!)  Take another look:

We just love them to pieces! And they remind us of Maggie and Mitch and their mom, so they make all of us smile!!! Thanks for being a part of our garden, M&M!!!

Here's something else that went on in our yard this week:

"Hi Mister.  Whatcha doing?  Can I help?  Does my mom know you're doing that?"

If me and Zimmie had done that, there would be lots of that "nodiggingnodiggingnodigging!" thing going on, but this seemed to give great serenity to both Mom and Dad. It was something to do with getting rid of bare patches and Yellow Nutsedge and putting new sod down. I don't know.  What I do know is that Mom and Dad are happy, there's some really pretty new grass on that part of the lawn, and me and Zim aren't allowed on it.  Yet.  Woo.

I hope you enjoyed Serene Scenery Sunday!  Wherever you are, I hope you find a little something to make you feel nice and peaceful.
