Breakfast in the garden

Early morning is my most favorite time of day. I love the peaceful quiet of the garden. I love sitting alone with my thoughts, watching Otis and Riley romping around the yard, while I take in the cool morning breeze, listening to and watching the birds. Breakfast even tastes better when it's in the garden.



The sun is not out yet. I can hear the soft cooing of the mourning dove in the distance.










There is not much blooming in the garden right now because of the heat, but I am thankful for all the greenery around me, the trees, the bushes, the ivy.











Otis and Riley enjoy digging a hole in the tomato patch.














I begin to plan my day ~





It's Friday! Have a good weekend, everyone!

I can't think of a nicer way to begin the day. I've been cooped up too long with all this heat, but as it begins to cool, I plan to try this.
Have a nice weekend.

Donna, Otis and Riley are the perfect breakfast companions...oh and of course, you too. :)
They are so cute. Your garden is so pretty and I'm going back to look at your other posts for inspiration.
Hope you have a great weekend,

Donna, Otis and Riley are so adorable, I love seeing photos of them. : ) I wish I had a place to sit outside, like you do. Hopefully in the next few years we can have a bigger yard, I'm sure breakfast is better out there.

You should try abstracts, they are wonderful to paint, different then I thought they would be but lots of fun.

I always enjoy pics of your beautiful and peaceful garden. I just got home from Chattanooga, I enjoyed a weekend of food, fun and house drooling!

I love to get up early and putter around too. And there's nothing better than eating a sandwich outside. The air does something to the bread that I just love. Weird? Mimi
