Serene Scenery Sunday

Greetings to all, it's me, Maggie!  It seems like we've shared a lot of serene scenery already this week, between our walks and all the shots out in the backyard.  I thought we could look around out front!

Mom brought the camera out so we could take shots of various plants of interest.  Here I am by the Purple Love Grass beside the driveway:

There's a chance Mom was trying to focus on the grass and I jumped in front of it. In fact, there's a pretty good chance that's what happened. I kept doing that, so Mom decided just to get shots of me blocking different things. ... or something like that.

There are some different colored Mums in back of me in this shot:

And there is some Liriope behind me here:

I did not block Mom's shot of the Clematis:

Do you know why not? Because I saw this:

Franklin's Gull

That's right - a sea gull. There are a bunch of them up there swooping around!  They come fly over our house every year at this time of year, according to Mom.  We're less than a mile from the Kansas Ocean, so they must be on their way there - don't you think?

We also went out on the deck to pick some herbs for Mom to use when she cooks today.

Can you smell them?  I like to just give them gentle sniffies.  I'm getting good at doing that instead of trying to eat them.

Anyway, I hope you feel nice and serene now!  Have a lovely Sunday!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher
