A perfect morning

This morning was the most perfect morning for sitting on the back porch.

The sunshine was pouring in and there was a soft breeze.

Otis was resting curled up on the chair.

I took this photo from the screened in porch looking out on the patio. There's my pink chair (the one I mentioned in the previous post).

This photo was taken while I was sitting in my pink chair having a cup of coffee. Riley likes to sit on the picnic table and watch the back yard. He's always looking for squirrels.

I love mornings like these.

What a beautiful setting to sit and watch the garden grow.....or look for squirrels! Most mornings. all I have to do is look on the back porch to see one or two raiding the bird feeder hanging from the porch :-)

Hope every morning is that peaceful for you.

I love your garden, it exudes calm.
Your back porch is a lovely place to sit with a coffee and watch the day unfold.
Riley is a hoot, does he get up the by himself..? He is keen..!

Donna said...

Yes, Riley gets up on the picnic table by himself. They both do. It's one of their favorite places to sit!

Donna, you are surrounded by beauty. I am so glad you have time to sit and enjoy it. And, I'm grateful you shared your beauty with us.

Thanks for encouraging me to sit and relax. I have dozens of plants to plant but perhaps, another cup of iced tea wouldn't be such a bad idea, after all.

That is so cute...Riley watching for squirrels. My dog would see one and fly off the table after it!
Your garden and yard are beautiful. Spring is such a pretty season!
