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...
(to be transplanted into the main mini rose garden later)
