A "Great" Serene Scenery Sunday

Hello, everyone!  It's me, Cammie.  I'm feeling pretty serene already, but I think my  pillow  sweet Maggie might need a little help in that direction.

"How about sharing some birdie photos, Mom?  Those always make us feel serene!"
"Yeah.  Birdie pix.  That should do it!"

Mom took a  run out to Tuttle Creek this week, so we knew she'd be supplied with serene photos - and the ones she had were all great!

Here are two of the Great Horned Owl puppies we told you about a couple weeks ago:

Here's a Great Blue Heron taking in the scenery at the River Pond:

Mom saw egrets for the first time this season!  Here's a Great Egret fishing in the lagoon area of the River Pond:

And yet another Great Egret across the Beaver pond:

All those great birdies sure made me feel even more serene!  Even if my  pillow  Maggie did move!

"Great job, Mom!  Zzz..."
"Mom.  Mom ... I'm so serene I can barely keep my eyes open."
"Sweet baby girls!"

We hope Mom's photos added a great dose of serenity to your Sunday, too!

Cammie!

Wall Posing

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie!  OK, there have been rumors around here that I'm not quite up to the role of Super Model.  Granted, I'm no Cammie, but who amongst us really is?  Exactly.  So ...  Mom needed some new photos to practice on for a course she's taking and I volunteered to pose for her!  I wanted to prove that I could rise to the challenge.

After a pep talk from Cam, I went out and did some wall posing.

I posed with my nose up:

I lowered it a bit and had Mom shoot in square format:

And for the big finish, I gave her my best Prime Minister pose:

See?  I can totally knock a Super Model session out of the park!

In totally unrelated news, the neighbor to our south was cooking something that smelled absolutely AMAZING!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

Snooter Smoochies!

Greetings to all!  It's me, Mags.  How many of you (or your moms) wanted to give Cammie's snooter a big ol' smooch yesterday?  That's what I thought!  LOTS of you!  Well, here.  Let me do it for you!

IMG_0243MagsCamSnooterSmooch
  "Kiss-kiss, Cam-a-roo!"  
   "Oh, my Maggie!"  

She is seriously smoochable!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

PS:  I was NOT about to grab her neck and engage in Crazed River Otter Games!  I was NOT!

PS again:  OK, I was.  But I did give her a smooch first!

A Lovely Day In April!

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie!  Cam and I have had fun showing you the gardens for the past couple of days.  Mom and Dad have been putting a lot of work in lately, but not over the weekend for some reason.  Friday, it got over 90, then the Kansas winds kicked into high gear, then the temps started falling, then there were a bunch of really bad storms that missed us, then Saturday ...

The view to the west!

Yep! The view out back! Isn't that great?!!? When things started to settle down a bit, I thought Mom and I should stroll around out front.

IMG_0196MagsAprilSnow
"What a lovely day!"

It was so nice!  The winds were still blowing, the windchill was somewhere in the teens, and a light snow was falling!  Who could ask for more?  Oh.  Yeah.  Well, Mom needed a break from yard work, anyway!

Here's a short video. If you look to the left of the flower pot, you'll see some rocks and a clump of greenish stuff. That is - or was - the Grecian Windflowers we showed you. Hey, they're hearty; they're already looking good again! Anyway, let's go look around a bit!



What a lovely day, indeed! Is Kansas great or what?!?!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

When You're Trying To Be A Supermodel ...

Hello, everyone.  It's me, Cam.  So there we were.  I was doing my best to pose like a supermodel in the garden ...

IMG_0137MagsCamFriendshipGarden
"OK, wait.  No ... OK, yeah ... no ... ha roo roo roo ... OK, wait.  I can do this ..."
"Seriously, Maggie?"

... and someone had a case of the sillies.

Sigh.

Cammie!
