Relax and Enjoy the Garden...For a Minute

We have a beautiful overcast morning here in North Texas. If you have ever been here during the summer, you will know exactly why I consider "overcast" beautiful in July. It is comfortable enough to sit out on my deck and enjoy a cup of coffee. I am also typing this as I enjoy that cup of coffee. I received a lap top for Mother's Day. This is the first time I have taken my baby outside into the garden.

I love these mornings where I actually wake up before everyone else and can relax before the choas begins. I am able to get a few little house chores started and then just kick back and observe my plants.

Maybe I should have done a little more gardening before sitting down on this fine morning. It looks like the hackberry suckers are trying to take over the garden yet again.

Back to battle against the invaders using my trusty Felcos.

Have a nice day y'all.


  1. It is nice to sit back, and enjoy the view.... it is definitely a different view, refreshing and satisfying... Squatting, Weeding, Digging and Watering are satisfying too, but the views of the garden from those angles are different and always distorted.. haha...


  2. My eye goes right to what must be done. I have to forcibly put myself in appreciation mode. Enjoy!

  3. Debbi-I am with you. Mornings are so nice and especially cloudy ones in July! My plants have loved the cooler temps and all the rain!
