Serene Scenery Tuesday

Or is that Tranquil Topography Tuesday?  Something like that.

Woo, everypup and everycat, it's me, Dave.  As my brother and sister said, due to a slight computer glitch, we temporarily misplaced our pix for Serene Scenery Sunday, but Dad, the bestest Dad in the world, found them!  Let's take a look!

Before I forget, there are tons more photos; to see more, please click here to go to our Garden 2013 set on FlickR and scroll to the end.

Our Rose of Sharon bushes are in full swing!  Here's a look at lots of different blooms:

I like the white, fluffy ones best.  Speaking of white, here are the Becky Daisies:

The Tomato Soup Echinacea is in bloom now!  Here's a look:

And so are the Pow Wow Wild Berry ones:

Let's look at more of those crazy pink ones:

Mom really likes that variety; so do I!  Here's more pink from our Crape Myrtle:

They're nice and pouffy, aren't they?

For our last of the garden pix, here is a close-up of one of the Amur Maple trees:

They look like butterfly wings to me, but Mom calls those seed pod thingies "helicopters" - you can toss one up into the sky and watch it fly!  Do any of your bipeds do that?  She said they bring back good childhood memories and make her feel serene.  I mean tranquil.

Speaking of which ...

Yeah.  It all makes me feel mighty serene, too!  I hope it does the trick for you, as well!

Luv,
Dave
