Serene Scenery Sunday

Greetings to all!  It's me, Mags, here with this week's foray into serenity!  Ready to take a look at our most serene moments?

Mom spent a lot of time in the garden again this week.  While she was in the back gardens, we supervised from the deck, like so:

"Don't work too hard, Mom!"
"BOOM!"

Sure, it's work, but it's joyful work!

Afterwards, us girls (me, Cam, and Mom) relaxed on the deck together.

"I'm Queen of the Stairs!"
"Prepare to be de-throned!"

I got to go inspect Mom's work. She spent a good deal of time planting sedum up in this area:

"Where are the new plants, Mom? ..."

"I can't ... sedum.  Ha roo roo roo!!!"

Just kidding.  Mom has been rooting some cuttings from a bunch of sedums a neighbor gave her.  She put them all over the place - and a lot of them in this special place up here.  We don't have an official name for that part of the garden (we have the Butterfly Garden, the Wildflower Garden, and the Bee Garden - Cammie named that just a couple weeks ago!). My proposal, given what Mom's been planting, is the Garden of Sedum. What do you think? Catchy?

Moving right along ...

I sat on this chunk of limestone while Mom watered the Purple Love Grasses.

"Not too much; we don't want root-rot!"

There is one by that blue flag and the rock. They are just root balls now, so Mom marked all of her new root plants with flags - that way she won't step on them by accident and she'll remember exactly where they are, come Springtime!

As for what's pretty in the gardens right now ... nothing says "Fall" or "Autumn" quite like Mums! Here is Cammie, posing by the Mums out front:

My beautiful sister Cammie!

And here I am:

Me - Maggie!

We both look serene and sweet, don't we? There is no reason to ask why Mom couldn't get a photo of the two of us in front of said Mums. Really. We're being serene here!

Did you know that one man's serenity is another man's horsing around? Just an observation, not relevant to anything at all.

To close it out, here is a shot of me and Cam after our walk this morning:

"I feel nice and serene now!"
"So do I!"

Have a great Sunday, everyone!  Find some serenity!

Yours sincerely,
