Morning Moments

The first thing I do after I get up in the morning is let the dogs out into the backyard to do their 'business', then I feed them and the cats their breakfasts.  This was at about 6:30 this morning, and the sun wasn't quite up yet.  My neighbor's pond was shrouded in mist, the forsythia at the corner of our properties was ablaze, and I thought the colors and textures would make a nice photo.  While the dogs waited patiently to be fed, I was outside capturing the moment with my camera. 




Our fantastic warm weather continues ... it's in the 60s this morning, with bright sunshine and lovely breezes.  The windows are open, and the cats are enjoying the birds and squirrels outside.  The weatherman says that today is the last day for this, as a rain system will arrive overnight and bring cooler temperatures. 

Alice is in the family room side window getting in a last little bit of bird watching while she can.  It's great that this old house of ours has such deep windowsills.



I'm on my way to the store, to get another bucket of Preen so I can finish treating the Rose Field before the rain arrives.  The only way to get the upper hand with the weeds will be to attack them on a number of fronts ... pulling, spraying, and preventing.  Wish me luck.

  4. I'm in the midst of the "colder" weather here, but the rain is welcome. If your forsythia is like mine, though, say goodbye because the rain washed all the "yellow" off.

  15. What a beautiful early morning view! Fabulous photo ... but the one of Alice on the windowsill is just so cute and charming - love it!
    I've been thinking of Preen-ing my perennial border, before the weeds germinate. I wish you luck, and me luck, too!

    We had a great time in Va but were only there a short time, with lots of family time and visits. Next time I'll let you know. We can meet at Suzanne's! We didn't get there, but it's a great favorite with my niece and her husband, who live in Doswell.

    Enjoy this wonderful spring!

  16. Gosh, Connie - the only thing missing from that first photo is a herd of horses running in the meadow. :) It's just beautiful!!! It looks ethereal! Rain arrived here last night and it was distinctly cooler today. But still above normal. We'll take it! :) I put my Preen on yesterday!

  18. Hi Connie, I love the photo. I'm wondering if that pond is in the field directly left of the barn? My uncle had a pond put in during his time there. Nice spring weather over here also!
