Serene Scenery Sunday

Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  It's me - Zim - here with Serene Scenery Sunday.  Today, I thought we'd have another go at the peonies.  I mean, I tried last Sunday and that didn't pan out too well, at least photo-wise, and we really didn't get a good look at them earlier this week, either.  Let's head out front and give it another go.

Oh... first let's look at those rhododendrons!

It's been hard for Mom to capture how rich their red is; I think she's getting better!

On to the peonies!  There are a couple different kinds in there, and we just love all of them.  Let's have a look:

I like those sort of double fluffy ones up at the top best, I think. Don't those make you feel nice and sere---- HEY!!!

"Hey!  We're trying to be serene over here!!!"

Oh, sorry. I got distracted. I think you can imagine by whom.

Yes, Maude the Bully Cat was trying to climb our Redbud Trees. Well, maybe that helped her find that inner zen.

Have a great Sunday.

Play bows,


  1. WE need to get Bully Maude and Allred (Devil Cat) together. That would be an interesting combo.

    Wait, No,.....not a good idea.

    Then there would be no safe doggy anywhere in the world.

    Watch your back


  2. Hi, Zim!
    Not so serene looking at Bully Maude but the flowers and you made it much better!
    Happy Sunday!
    Kisses and hugs

  3. Beautiful flowers! Our few tulips have been pushed over by the snow. Yeah, really, snow....

  4. Did you say before what those Peonies were? I think the top one is 'Sorbet'. Love that red rhodie!

  5. Your flowers are very pretty Zim! It looks like Maude spends a lot of time with you lately. Does she have a home?

  6. Maude can really ruin the Zen of Zim, can't she? Love those pink peonies!
