An Early Morning Walk ……..

thru the garden….

It rained during the night.

It was early.

Really early….

The sun was barely up.

What could I find with the camera?

Is that something growing in the veggie garden? Didn't you just plant it or is this an existing garden? Very cool photos!

Raindrops on caladium gets my vote! Beautiful shot!

Tootie said...

Gee, I liked them all! But my most favorite of all...that most beautiful orange orchid in your header. It's awesome!

Oh goody! A new project is always fun to anticipate. This is a great time to enjoy just being in the garden and appreciating it all. The weather has been sweet and even rainfall has been perfect. Emma's little arm cradling her head is way cute.

These are all fantastic shots, but my favorite is sunlight through the Alocasia. What a beautiful shot!!! Amazing really. You've got a good eye. Poor poor Yard Boy. My Brawny Man has it a little tough right now...he is building new counter tops in the kitchen and installing granite tile. Hmmm, how'd we get so lucky?

I do hope a wee bit of dryer air is in store for us. I enjoyed the stroll through your early morning garden. It looks absolutely lovely, and I'm eager to see your new project...sounds like some heavy lifting to me. Don't make us wait too long!

Hi Chris,
Sitting on the back porch catching up with some commenting on my favorite blogs!!!! Yay for less humidity today. 86 and low humidity is SO DIFFERENT than 86 and well... you know.

Emma!!! What a cootie-patootie in all her pink comfort.

The rain has been great this week and you captured it beautifully in your photos. I do like to look at the garden from different angles... it is amazing what you'll see.
