Serene Scenery Sunday

Greetings to all! It's me, Maggie, here with Cam.  It's really, really humid and really, really hot out, so we thought maybe for Serene Scenery Sunday we'd just show you some photos Mom took this week out at the Manhattan Community Gardens, OK?

"Seriously.  It's too hot for us to go out much past 0800, except for quick potty breaks."
"Sigh.  Maybe it'll snow soon..."

Friends of theirs have a garden plot out there and while they're out of town, Dad is taking care of watering and tending their veggies. Mom went along to  take photos  help.  Well, we all know what Mom went along for, who am I kidding?  Anyway, here are some of the pix she took!

Here is one of the few shots she took of veggies!

Here are some future veggies:

We have no idea what this is, but it's cool-looking:

This guy struck a nice pose for Mom:

I wonder if she gave him a treat?  He sure deserved one!

And what outing would be complete without some birdies?

Well, that's a wrap for this week.

"Do you feel the serenity?"
"I sure do.  I think it's nap time, Mags."

I hope you feel nice and serene now!  If you'd like to see the rest of the set from Mom's shoot at the Community Gardens, please click here.  Have a wonderful Sunday!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

  2. Those are all beautiful photos, Cam and Maggie. We have butterflies today too, but our Mom can't shoot that flashy beast like your Mom can.

    Hot and humid here too - thank dogness for a/c.
