... here with Serene Scenery Sunday. This week, we thought we'd share some pix from right here at Ao4 Headquarters that helped all of us feel nice and serene.
Let's start with this fellow redhead who stopped by:
He had been staring in the door at Mom, then, when she grabbed the camera and ran out on the deck, he posed in the neighbors' tree. Nice of him to stop by, don't you think?
Rather than look through the screened-in deck and through the door, this tiny schputzie flew inside the screened-in part of the deck!

It's like the birdies miss being stalked by Mom!
Some of her favorite things are blooming now! Down at the bottom of the yard are our Old Fashioned Lilacs:

We aren't the only ones enjoying them -- check this out!
Up by the house, another variety of lilacs are blooming:
They are a little paler in color, and are super fragrant!
Even paler still - actually they're white! - are our Beth Lilacs!!!!

Mom planted them from small cuttings a few years ago and these are the first blooms we've had. She is SUPER excited.
Probably our most fragrant flowering bush of all is in bloom, too:
It is right by our bottom deck, and we can smell it every time we're out there!!!
Lastly, we have another birdie who stopped by. He was actually peeking in the bedroom window at Mom while she was doing her hair.
She was thankful he stayed there while she grabbed the camera and ran out onto the deck. Even if he IS a Peeping Tom.

Yeah, sure. (I think he needs to work on his innocent look!)
We hope our photos helped you feel more serene! Have a lovely Sunday.
