Serene Scenery Sunday

Woo, everypup and everycat!  It's me - Dave.  It's been mighty serene week around here!  Great adventures, a good vet visit, tasty treats, time together ... we even got a little rain and a drop in our temperatures!  Let's look around and see what else can help us pack up all our cares and woes.  How about a super colorful sunset?!?

I think God sure gave us a beautiful gift that night, didn't He?  The brilliant pinks are echoed over here in our PowWow Wild Berry Echinacea:

As a Guide Dog for the Color Blind, it's important that I point out stuff like that.

Here is a Becky Daisy, always guaranteed to bring a smile:

Are you smiling?  I thought so.

Here's a look at the plumes on the Pampas Grass at the very bottom of our yard:

That's the tallest of our ornamental grasses.  Eventually, the Plume Grass will get that tall, but it's got a way to go!

How about we check in on our shortest ornamental grass - the Purple Love Grass?!?  Remember last week I told you it was sending out its plumy things?!?!  Look at how frothy it is!

"Woo!"

Doesn't it look great?  Here's another shot:

Mom and Dad are mighty happy with how these guys look.  When the sun hits them, they look like sparklers all lit up!

I hope you've got some serenity brewing up now.  Have a great Sunday - and remember to stop and enjoy the little things along the way!

Luv,
Dave

  16. I wish I could see those sparkly grasses at night. It sounds way cool.

    You know what? When momma was walking Pea she stopped to talk to a lady tending her flower garden and the lady gave momma a big bouquet to take home!
