Serene Scenery Sunday

Hello, everyone!  It's me, Cammie, here with Serene Scenery Sunday - a collection of photos we hope will help you feel nice and mellow.  There is a lot going on out in our garden right now, so how about we take a tour around the backyard?

When we first come off the deck, there is a nice array of Day Lilies right across from us.  They are in full bloom right now:

Stella D'Oro Day Lilies

Aren't they pretty?

Let's see if anything is blooming in the upper garden.

"Anything flowery up here?"

Just grasses doing their thing right now; no flowers.  I'll keep you posted.

Oh! Remember the Dazzleberry Sedum plants I showed you last year?  Let's take a look at them now!

Me!  D'Azul's Girl From Ipanema in front of the  Dazzleberry   D'Azulberry Sedum

That's them behind me! They make me smile! Right across from them is something that makes Mom and Dad smile. Take a look:


I can't wait until Maggie and I get to taste them!

"We will get to try them ... right, Mom?"

Moving right along ...

Me, by the Snow Flower Tree.  No snow currently.
You can also see the Butterfly Weed (orange), the Red Creeping Thyme (pink), and the Purple Emperor Sedum (purple).

Just off to my right, your left, from where I was sitting in that picture, just off-camera, are the Becky Daisies. Here is one of them:

Let's go down a little bit this way ...

"Follow me!"

... and take a look at the Lavender!


That's the pink kind (Rosea Lavender) in the foreground, and the regular kind (Blue Fragrant Lavender) in the background!

I hope you liked our garden tour! Do you feel serene now?

"Happy Serene Scenery Sunday!"

I do! And a bit thirsty. Let's get back into the air-conditioning! The drinks are on me!



  1. Beautiful beautiful, and the flowers and the foliage were nice too. I could go for a bowl full of liquid refreshment.

  2. Blooming marvellous we say. We are not doing too badly over here too as we are making up for two bad Summers. Paws crossed we have a bumper Tom crop this year. Have a serene Sunday. Get some big easy in today.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. Our mom had to leave a LOT of FRAGRANT Lavender behind ...when they moved to the HILL. She misses that scent.

    Your Stellas are TRULY gorgeous. Ours are just starting to BUD.

    OMD OMD TOMMY TOES... you have tomatoes already... that is super.

  4. I would like to dig in your garden, Cammie.

    OH! I have just thought of Maggie's next challenge.

  5. That was a wonderful walk....love the lavender...did you know that the English lavender it is the flowers they extract the scent from and the French lavender it is the leaves. We much prefer the English...it have a stronger sweeter smell...hard to find here in the USA though

  6. hey Cammie! thanks for showing us the beautiful flowers in your garden. can't beat a daisy or a pup's smiling face to make us feel serene :) have a great week! purrs,

    Pip, Smidgen, Minnie, Hollie

    Dory, Jakey, Arty & Bilbo

  8. Your flowers are just beautiful, Cammie, but our favorite photo is the very last one ♥

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

  9. I feel totally serene. And I KNOW you'll get to taste the tomatoes. Why wouldn't you?? Surely your pawrents wouldn't be so SELFISH as to keep them all for themselves!

  10. You have a lovely garden. Thanks for sharing.
