Morning Garden

A knock on the door and barking dogs changed my rising time this morning...
a blessing because it got me outside before the heat of the day.
Our pink roses made me smile;
the color pink in the garden always makes me smile:)
In the miniature rose garden colorful roses of white, orange and more
also made today all the more blessed.
An extra treat was finding the Lady's Mantle rimmed with dew..
in the light it looked like tiny ice crystals--
(I rewarded that garden by a morning watering)
An early Mother's Day gift from my DDIL and family
found a new home on top of a lacy tablecloth on our east deck.
I feel the call to have tea out there now...
Two familiar birds greeted me and the morning light with their melodies of perfection...
so wish I knew what the lyrics to their song were.
And now, time to get back to my tasks...
simplicity rose
lady's mantle
miniature rose
(to be transplanted into the main mini rose garden later)
one of our morning visitors on the bridge near one of the evergreen huckleberries
(anyone know what kind of bird this is?)
rhododendron--possibly a white catawa

Hi Aimee:

Thank you for the sweet comment on my blog. I hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day too! I think my favorite of your pictures is the dew on the Ladie's Mantle. So pretty and delicate although your roses are beautiful too.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Beautiful pink rose! Could the bird be a wren or sparrow? I'm off to Multnomah Falls! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Excellent photos! Especially your first two - of the pretty pink rose and the dew on the leaves.

aimee said...

Ah, you're welcome...I am glad it blessed you. My favorite is the dew on the Lady's Mantle too-it was even better in person:)
Have a good weekend also!

aimee said...

TY! I love the pink too--of course, you already knew that:)
TY so much for your help with the bird ID. I will check on both of those and see if it is a match. I am not as good with identifying birds as I wish I was :(
Oh---I bet Multnomah Falls was gorgeous today!
Have a very happy Mother's Day this weekend:)

aimee said...

Thank you Linda-I appreciate that:)
I like the Lady's Mantle the best, but I LOVE the pink of the rose!
Have a wonderful Mother's Day this Sunday!

Hi Aimee I hiked over from Lindas Lens . Glad I came to visit gorgeoous photos! I was drawn to your white dog photo image next to your name ... is that a Amerian Eskimo dog ... I had one as a kid it just reminded me of him ...Tinker :)

aimee said...

Hi Willow!
Welcome and thank you SO much for taking time to leave a comment!
Yes, that sure is an American Eskimo! We actually have three of them and think they are an awesome dog! That is SO neat that you had one as a child...I am sure Tinker meant a lot to you and that you have very special memories of him:)
Have a great weekend!

I love those pretty pink roses-what a sweet Mother's Day gift!

aimee said...

Hi, Terri~
Welcome!Thank you so much for your visit and kind comment:) I love them too!
I noticed that you are interested in genealogy...so am I! Isn't it fun to learn about your family's heritage while at the same time exploring our nation's (and other nation's) history?
TY so much for visiting and have a wonderful weekend!

Willow said...

Tinker was a lovable character indeed and they use to call te breed "spitz" back then lol I remember because people use to ask my mom what breed he was and she would say sPITZ and I would always giggle!!

aimee said...

I KNOW I would have loved your Tinker too--I have found Eskies to be quite affectionate and loyal! LOL -- I bet that caused others to want to laugh too:)
Blessings this day,
