Serene Scenery Sunday

Hello, everyone, it's me, Cammie!  Before I get to today's post, I'd like to thank you for all the well wishes for my most wonderful big brother Zim!  He had his procedure Friday and is doing very well!

Now... how about some nice, serene scenery?

"Right in there, Mom?"

Across from me in that photo above - that might look like an ugly, empty lot to you. But my mom said it holds all kinds of treasures. Take a look!


A lone sunflower, growing amid the weeds! Isn't it beautiful?!

Over in another area of the vacant lot, there were a few more. Look at this beauty:


Growing right out of the rocks!

And here is one who paired up with some Dotted Gayfeather:


It's like "nature's bouquet", right there in the rocks and sticks.

Speaking of sticks, here's some Gayfeather and sticks:


Doesn't that just dress up the place?!?

Here's a close-up of some more:


There is also a little bit of Blue Sage growing in there:


Isn't that pretty?

And closer to home... in fact, right at home, we had this guy join us for morning deck time:


His eyes look like checkerboards! He even opened his wings up for us to admire:


His more colorful side!

I hope our photos helped add a little serenity to your day!  Have a wonderful Sunday!
