morning . afternoon




sharp

hose in one hand . cup of coffee in the other
 just moments of stillness before the Texas sun fully rises 
flowers and leaves call for cool drops 

as morning stretches to afternoon 
cool quiet of home call scissors . paper & twine
a summer day in garden and garland

What a beautiful morning there! I have to say I'm swooning over the sparkle on the leaf in that that second photo...*sigh*... I love the rather shabby look of your birds today--how sweet they are. Just like you. :o) And so lovely to see you at my place yesterday. Happy Weekend, my friend ((HUGS))

Thanks for the drink. I'm so very, very glad you linked.

I'm so amazing at creative artwork that people have... I can write and/or yammer and help choose colors for various house or yard situations -- BUT can't do these fun and lovely bits. Oh, well... maybe when I get to heaven that will be a new gift. [You also reminded me that I have to get out and start the watering before our temp hits the upper 90s later today. Gotta run.]

LOVE YOUR ART, such simple beauty! And...going outside to water now!

Jennifer Richardson said...

such beauty in your hours
and in the same way you sprinkle
your garden with living freshness,
you sprinkle other gardens
with bountiful aliveness
the peaceful work of your hands.
I'm so glad to be one
in that garden:)
thanks for the sprinkle,
Jennifer

beautiful -- it makes me thirsty for rain to fall from the clouds. (I'm in Texas, too)

I love the stillness of your creation. It brings peace!

You water the flowers the same way I do...with a coffee in one hand:) I get bored standing there with the hose! Gorgeous, sweet birdies!

Happy summer, my friend. I've missed you.

Emily Wierenga said...

i am so jealous of the quiet in your part of the world :) the quiet in which to create... and what beauty you create.
