Serene Scenery Sunday

Woo, everypup and everycat.  It's me, Dave, here with some photos to help make your Sunday a bit more serene.  I thought we'd start with another look at the blooms out front.

Remember the Redbud trees Zim showed you the other day?  Here's a closer look at a branch full of them:

The leaves are forming already; they'll replace the blooms before you know it.

Under the Redbuds are those PJM Rhododendron.  Here is a close up of one:

And a close up of some blooms on the other:

Mom loves the color -- and so do I!

We always love the changing skies here. They were particularly stunning the other day. Mom took a couple shots while she was out doing errands. Take a look:

That's actually near the Kansas Ocean. You don't think she went there without me and Zim, do you?

Hmm. That one looks remarkably like a hill on the way home from the Kansas Ocean.  Hmm.  I'm sure it was just on her way to somewhere ... right?

When she got home, Mom said I could go out onto the deck to take another sky picture with her.  Check this out:

The clouds went on forever!  It made us both feel very serene.

Know what else makes me feel serene?

That's right -- snuggling with my mom.

What makes you feel serene? Whatever it is, make sure to spend lots of time doing it today!



  1. Just gazing at those beautiful cloud pix makes us feel serene! We went to a zen temple retreat in the mountains near here the other day and that made us feel pretty serene! You look so serene cuddling with your Ma - great picture!

  2. Dave, seeing you relaxing with your mom makes me feel serene. I love the flower pictures. We don't have a redbud tree, but I love their flowers. Keep healing, Dave.

  7. Beautiful Blossoms and beautiful sky but the most beautiful is you with you Mom. I hope to spend some time with my MOM, but Sunday she is gone a lot. But that means that Monday is just around the corner and that is our day together.
