Serene Summery Scenery

Hello, everyone!  It's me, Cam, here with this week's venture into serenity.   Mags is going to start us out today - ready?  Take it, Mags!

Thanks, Cam.  Let me just take it ...

"Thank you very much!"

... and run with it!

"Wheeeee!  Ah, the serenity of run, run, running through the yard!"

It was perfect!  And so serene!  Birdies singing, Mom tossing my toy around for me, me running and running and running to get it!  Oh.  And ... um ...

"Wow.
Would you believe it was attacked by a pack of squirrels?
How about a spontaneous explosion?
No?  How about err ... ummm ... "

I know!  I know what you're thinking, "Quick!  Do something cute and serene!"  Am I right?  Try this on for size:

"Mmm, smell that lavender, Mom!  And oooooh, don't the Crape Myrtles look nice?!?"
Yeah.  Back over to you, Cam.

"Oh, Mags!"
"Yeah, but it was FUN!  Isn't fun synonymous with serene?  I mean, it CAN be!  Am I right?!?"

How about a quick look at our sky from the other morning:

Serene Summer sky!

Doesn't that look like a great way to start the day?  That was our view on our walk!  And now ...  how about I take you all for a nice serene tour of the garden?

"This is some Blue Oat Grass and a bunch of the sedum plants Mom put in!"

Let's meander down the path a bit and take in the sights there!

"The orange thingie is a Butterfly Weed!"

Hmm.  What else should we look at?

"I know!  Run back up to the top tier with me!  C'mon!"

Oh.  I should point out the White Rose of Sharon bushes down on the bottom tier in the photo above; they are in full swing right now!  But come over here!!!

"Let's pick some tomatoes!!!"

Homegrown tomatoes make all of us serene!

Thanks for sharing part of your Sunday with us! 

Cammie!

  3. Hi Cammie, Can you ask your mom to tell me about Rose of Sharon bushes please. WE have one of each side of our front porch and although the gal at the nursery who identified them for me said they would bloom soon, they haven't. I'm not even sure what color the flowers will be. Is their blooming season long? Do you cut them back after they bloom or wait until the frost?
    Thanks friends. Loved your serene Sunday.
    Wags,
