Morning Glory

Good Morning!
     As many of you know we have a large pond on our property that was made last year in our field. So this spring it has been a real treat to sit in the early morning and enjoy the peace and quiet and watch the     Canada geese.
We had some cool mornings giving a mist on the pond in the early hours.
So peaceful to watch!
But soon the sun comes up and burns off the mist and it is time for breakfast. The heron statue is from Homesense and he has since been moved to the little island.
We feel blessed to be able to enjoy our breakfast in such a peaceful and beautiful setting.



Morning glory!!!


Well,now that breakfast is over the garden is calling to me!

Today,I am joining Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday ,The Charm of Home for Home Sweet Home and French Country Cottage for Feathered Nest Friday.

Thank you for visiting,
Carolyn

That first picture is amazing, Carolyn! I had to look at it for a moment because I thought it was a painting! Such a beautiful spot to begin {and even end} your day. I love your tray setting with breakfast. I'm sure it must be a relaxing and stress-free start to your day.

What a beautiful reward to all of your hard labor! Your pond is wonderful and your breakfast makes me hungry! Beautiful photography my friend! Beautiful everything and that granddaughter of your is such a pretty little girl. I can't think of anything better on earth to do than spend precious time with a child especially when the child is a grandchild. Who knew the heart could hold so much love!! I am sure that you have placed some wonderful memories in her heart and she will cherish them as time goes by.

Terri said...

Lovely spot! I would love to have a place to eat outside in nice weather.

Such a pretty setting, we also have a pond behind our house but so far we have only enjoyed it from the yard. If I had a deck like yours it would be my favorite place to read a good book.
Thank you for sharing.

What a beautiful place to go to soak up some peace and tranquility! Aren't the Canada Geese something..... I went for a walk a couple of weeks ago near a farm and The River that runs through our Town. I got some photos, but it's hard to get near them, they frighten off easily!

JUST BEAUTIFUL!! The photos are really gorgeous....

Siret said...

The photos look like romantic paintings!
So wonderful!
Thanks for this beauty.
