Serene Scenery Sunday

Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  It's me, Zim.  I thought I'd start Serene Scenery Sunday by showing you the friends I made the other day -- then we'd take a look around the neighborhood to really move into the Zen of Zim Zone!  Ready to take a look?

As you may recall, I spotted some deer in the woods, across a little meadow.  I sent them a mind-meld message that I was their friend (and I vouched for my mom, too) - and they came a little closer. Here are a couple photos of them:

My deer friends.  Or is that "my dear friends"?  Ha roo roo roo!

The little one wasn't quite sure what to make of Mom, so he kept facing away from us, in case he needed to dash off into the woods.

What a beautiful family!

It was really cool seeing them!

Ready to check out our neighborhood?  Let's saunter down the street a bit and see what we can see.

Me.  Sauntering.

This Brown Thrasher was up in a neighbor's tree:

"♫ La la la♩la la-la ♬ la!!♩"

He was singing loud and proud. If I was a girl Brown Thrasher, I would have been thoroughly impressed.

This little schputzie landed right by our mailbox and struck a pose:

Yesterday evening, we saw this off our deck:

First big storm of the season! Needless to say, our weather-geek mom was thrilled. Here's the scene out front:

It was more impressive in person. Or "in Siberian".

Can you see the light-colored dots under that tree on the left?   That's our next door neighbors' tree - and those are tulips.  Let's take a closer look!

Isn't that gorgeous? When they moved in back in the Fall, the gentleman planted the tulip bulbs. He's really proud and happy with how they look -  I bet they make him and his wife feel all kinds of in the Zen of Zim Zone!

"Just beautiful, neighbors!"

In our gardens, our Texas Quince is blooming (Mom hasn't taken any photos yet) and our Grecian Windflowers are up and looking mighty colorful!  Here's a look at one of the little flowers:

Purple is mighty big in this town.  Mom has added a lot of it to our gardens throughout the time we've lived here!

That's a wrap for this week's Serene Scenery Sunday.  Tomorrow, Cammie will fill you in on what she saw the other day at the Kansas Ocean - and she promises to keep that serene, too.  Maybe I'm rubbing off on her, too, not just little Maggie!

Have a wonderful day - and remember to stay in the Zen of Zim Zone!

Play bows,
Zim

  1. Hi Zim, Love the deer family-they almost looked like statues. All the pics were gorgeous. That sky, though, would have concerned me a bit. It is snowing here lightly today. Love the tulips too. Can't wait til spring decides to hang around.
    Have a great day!
    Wags,
    Noreen & Hunter

  8. We had those scary storms roll through here late this afternoon. Scary skies for sure. The only flowers in bloom here are the hyacinths in the front beds. Maybe we need some of that quince here too.
