Each and every morning.....I make my first cup of tea and go to the deck. I sit on the second step down and just enjoy the view, the smells, the breeze, the sounds and the rising of the sun! Does it get any better than this?............I don't think so! Rog comes and joins me with his coffee and we quietly sit and tell each other how lucky we are:D We both work hard in the yard and the fruits are enjoyed equally! We spend almost all of our summer time outside. We have a small front porch where sit and chat or read, a deck off our kitchen that we use as a summer living room, a small deck off of our bedroom that we use in the evenings for star gazing, a patio that is an extension of our family room downstairs and a covered area under our deck where the children play and Rog and I spend time swinging! Rog has a hammock poised and ready for him at the end of the workday also:D
We love our windows open and hesitate to turn on the air conditioning until the last minute! We still open the windows at night so that we can hear the crickets, frogs and other night noises (like the Burlington Northern passing through town).
Tonight I took my new camera out (in the pitch dark) and took these pictures of the front garden. These beautiful specimens were smiling at us when we ventured out this morning. They have looked like they would burst open for the past two or three day.....but today was the day:D
I hope you are enjoying this warm weather and that your garden is putting a smile on your face and peace in your heart.........
