Let's start with a shot of Cam and me on the front porch.
|Cam and me!|
Well, some of us were sitting on the porch; others of us thought they might get jumped by a Crazed River Otter. Go figure.
Anyway, the porch plants are all doing great, and that makes Mom happy. In fact, the Electric Lime Coleus was doing so well (in the pot on the right) that Mom cut it way back and stuck the tops in another pot. She didn't root it first or anything; she read that you can just stick the stalks in the dirt.

Apparently, it works. This, too, made Mom all kinds of happy.
Here's what is really making us all feel serene! Take a look at who was in the Butterfly Garden this week!
An Eastern Tiger Swallowtail! (More photos of him here and here.)
Another thing that made us feel serene was getting some much-needed rain! And with the rain -- a COOL FRONT!!!!! Here is a panoramic shot of it, coming in over the Flint Hills:
Would you like to see a video? Mom and I shot this out front - we did a full 360-degree spin.
That is from our FlickR site. If it won't play there, please click here to view on YouTube.
Lastly, here is a shot of me checking out the mammatus clouds out front:
We eventually got over an inch of rain -- and we're out of the triple-digit temps!!! Now THAT'S serene!
I hope you have a wonderful Sunday!
