I've gotten into the habit of taking my first cup of coffee outside with me in the early morning before the sun is over the trees. I sit and listen to the birds calling and watch the bees as they go about their chores. It's a very peaceful time of day and surveying the garden from my chair, I'm often overwhelmed by the beauty I see. It's a good time to reflect on the many joys gardening brings me ... once the sun is high in the sky, I'm not in much of a reflective mood. Since I do whine a lot on this blog about the heat and the drought, I've decided to share more of my happier moments with y'all. Beauty and joy are all around me, on my corner of Katy and in my garden of friends.
it looks like we both enjoy having our coffee out in our garden every morning, just with the difference that I sit out on my patio.
It's just too bad, latest by 9:30a.m. it gets already so hot and humid, it makes it hard to enjoy being outdoors. Wondering if this unusual heat and eternal drought ever is gonna stop again.
I sure hope you get some rain soon. We're hopeful the 40% forecast for today here materializes! We need it, too!
Have fun on your trip! We will be heading to the Rockies soon! YEA cooler weather!
I agree. I get up early and out in the garden with the chickens. The first hour or so is best.
Did you get rain today? I think Katy was in the direct path of a huge drenching thunderstorm.
I got a great drenching and every drop soaked into the ground! Yeah.
Countdown to November 1st?
I thought it was October 1st last year.LOL
I'm so inspired by your countdown that I grabbed the widget and put a little one on my blog. But I'm hoping against hope that it turns cooler by September 21st.

Leslie, it's a nice way to start the day.
Pat, by lunchtime, it's way too hot to eat out! I usually call it quits and come inside by noon.
Gail, I do envy you that screened porch!
Sweetbay, I look forward to doing it each morning.
Rebecca, we did get a 20 minute storm on Wednesday and I may have gotten an inch of rain from it. I'm happy about that.
MT, enjoy the Rockies double for me!
David, it WAS October 1st last year. We had so many hot days that month that I figured I'd better push the date back!
Rose, I keep hoping that we'll be surprised by a cool front in July as we were a few years back.
Dee, this is the time of year you and I both need to remind ourselves why it's worth it!
Annie, the birds can put on quite a concert some mornings!
