Morning Time


When it comes to morning, I’m not a get up and go kind of girl.  No, I’d rather ease into the day, gather my thoughts and have a couple of hours of quiet time.

Soon the doves are cooing, and I listen wondering what it is they are saying to one another.  Overhead I hear the sound of an airplane and I imagine the people aboard and wonder where and why they are going.  There is the occasional whir of a helicopter, a possible indicator of a life flight or a news crew heading to cover breaking news.  Cars pass by and I can tell by their speed how much of a hurry the driver is in.

All those  sounds are familiar.  What is new is the miracle of spring.

All around me is color, none more beautiful than the azaleas bursting with it, and I want to take as much in as possible because they won’t be here too long.

As each new day begins, I welcome it with appreciation and there is little that can interrupt my morning time which sets the tone for the rest of the day.

i so appreciate your visit and especially the comments you leave behind

  1. What a lovely post. I also enjoy watching all the buds burst into bloom, seemingly overnight. Enjoy the rest of your day and thanks for sharing this very restful post.

  2. I’m sitting here at 10:41 at night listening to the outside sounds of the crickets, kill deer and a beautiful sounding owl hooting off in the distance. Who needs a sound machine. Your pictures are beautiful and I love your choice of furniture!

  3. I’m like you in that I start my day slowly as well. Your back porch is a nice place to start the day and when the Texas weather gets too hot, you have your back porch in Maine. Enjoy!

You make my day with your comments
