|"Cam! Check these out!"|
Don't mind her -- she was a little bit ... mopey because she didn't want to go this way this morning. True, we went this way yesterday, but c'mon! There's always something new to see!!!
|"Look at all that purple and pink!!!"|
Well, Mom and I liked it.
Right here at home, our Redbud Trees are finishing up, but still have little clusters of blooms on the trunk:

In full bloom are our Pink Lily of the Valley:
|Our Maggie and Mitch Lily of the Valley|
You can read the special story behind them at this link. We love having flowers from our friends! Speaking of which ...
In addition to our M&M Lily of the Valley, we have regular white ones AND some large white ones from our friend Beth! They're in bloom, too!

Not only are we growing some of Beth's Lily of the Valley, but as we showed you on our last Serene Scenery Sunday post, we planted some of her White Lilac cuttings a few years ago -- and it's blooming!!!
|First blooms on our Beth White Lilacs!|
Our Old-Fashioned Lilacs are just about done for the season, but it still has some wonderfully fragrant flowers:
|Can you almost smell the Old-Fashioned Lilacs?!!?|
Out front, our Dwarf Korean Lilacs are just getting started! Here's a shot of Cam beside those:
|"I really wanted to walk past the Kansas Ocean today..."|
I think I'm going to need to cheer her up with some extra Crazed River Otter Games later on!!!
Moving right along, even though they haven't fully opened yet, they're already quite fragrant! Mom was giving them a little sniff - and I couldn't resist sticking my snooter in, too! Then ...
|"Oh, yeah, Mom! Tasty, too!"|
We moved over to the other side of the yard after that. I have no idea why.
Anyway, over here, one of our favorites is about to bloom:

Those are the flowers in our neck of the woods this Friday; we hope they brought you some smiles. (If not, swing by later and join me and Cam in our round of CROG - that always makes everyone around here smile!)
