Early Morning Gardening
I am back this week with some new photos! Yay!
We have been having gloriously cool mornings and I have been taking advantage of them to get out and work in the garden. I hate heat! Since I have lupus, I also don’t go outside much once the sun gets high in the sky.
Patchouli has been coming out to help me. With her dark fur, she isn’t too happy being out when it’s hot and sunny either. She’s a regular around here on helping me weed.
Luckily I am definitely a morning person and totally enjoy being out the garden early. I get up at 6 am to start my day and have convinced my husband to get up at 7:30 on weekends. I really feel the difference on the weekend, when I look at the clock and see that it’s already 9 or 10 in the morning and I’ve barely accomplished anything.
I love how fresh and cool everything is in the morning. Birds are waking up. The sun is just rising above the trees. The promise of a good day.
Are you a morning person?
Even with me outside with her, she is constantly looking over her shoulder. Looking for the mean kitties, Coco and Tiki (from next door) that bully her.
Though this morning I went inside to get some water and I found her and Tikki both on the driveway! Tikki got up an ran away when she saw me (I am constantly chasing her out of the yard with a super soaker water gun – my husband says that Tikki considers me a sport.)
Well, it’s time to go out and move the sprinklers! I hope everyone has a lovely weekend and a happy 4th of July!
For my artsy photo this week, I used Topaz Labs as usual, but used a black and white preset since Patchouli was already black and white!
