Serene Scenery Sunday

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie.  For this week's dose of serenity, I thought we'd take a look at what's blooming out front.  Ready to take a look?

We'll start with the blooms that make Cam and me the most serene ... our SNOWBALLS!

"Ah, such sweet serenity!"

I mean, what could be better than snowballs, right?  Since it's now way too warm for real ones, we'll settle for our Snowball Viburnum bush.

Just a little bit over from that are our Beth Lily Of The Valley:

"They smell incredible!"

Our friend Beth gave them to us!  They're a bit larger, fuller, and milkier-looking than our "regular" ones.  They're a lovely addition to our Spring garden!

Speaking of friends, our dear friend Molly's mom sent these Lily Of The Valley to our mom way back in 2009!

"I love these!"

They're PINK!  Mom had never seen pink ones before, so Maggie and Mitch sent some to our great-brother Zim!  You can read all about them here!

Here's a close up:


They are so special to us!  Mom loves having plants from friends in our gardens!

These next plants were also from a friend. They aren't in bloom yet, but they're almost ready to pop open!  Here I am in front of the Peonies:

"Hang on, Mom.  I see people!"

Sorry.  I got distracted.  But I was still serene.

I hope you enjoyed our mini garden tour!  Are your Spring things starting to open?

Enjoy the day, and remember to grab a little serenity where you can!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher


  1. We love the garden tour! Our mom loves lily of the valley and has never seen a pink one before! Very cool! And too bad those snow balls aren't actual snowballs...that would be more fun! Have a lovely Sunday!

  2. Has it really been that long?! Your gardens are always so gorgeous, Maggie. Have a wonderful serene Sunday!

    1. We can't believe it's been that long! We're thankful for the memories and wonderful friendships!
      Cam and Mags -- and our mom

  3. We love seeing your beautiful blooms since they are a few weeks ahead of ours. The weather peeps say we might get real snow later this week. Hopefully it won't be too cold for some of the shrubs that are starting to bloom here.

  4. Those snowballs are the kind I'm much more likely to see!
