Morning Light

 Good Morning!
        Don't you just love to get up early and enjoy the beauty of the early morning light? I took these photos a couple of weeks ago -I have so many photos to share now but not enough time to post !
 I love how the virginia creeper grows over the window in the summer making a living blind and keeping the bedroom cooler.
 The golden glow in the library as the sun filtered through.
 I headed outdoors with my camera.
 The sun was rising through the trees.

 You can see the mist rising off the pond in the background.

 We went for a short drive to enjoy the early morning sights and marvelled that the hay was already cut and baled. Where does the time go?
 This back road is a couple of miles from our home. Don't you love our red clay soil?

 You know how I love making collages!
 Hope you are enjoying some beautiful sunny mornings wherever you are too!

I am joining My Romantic Home for Show and Tell today.

Thank you for visiting me,

True magical delight.


And that road of red clay leading somewhere awesome? Kinda makes one's heart skip a little - such intrigue in that photo.

Thank you for this morning gift, Carolyn.

I cannot travel the world anymore but I sure do love getting online and seeing the beautiful homes of blogging women who invite us to see through their eyes. Your garden and home is one of my most favorite places. It inspires me and one day I'm going to have a room like your picture...pinks, white, lace, lilacs, cream-ware and a comfy chair, pure lush. It is a plan :D

Your blog is the cure for the soul. I love to watch these beautiful places and the roads are peculiar to the novel "Anne of Green Gables". But that's probably ever wrote.
Greetings from Poland!

You have the most beautiful garden! With the mist coming off the pond, it almost looks surreal. So very pretty! And I love the ball fringe on your curtain! My master bedroom curtains have ball fringe, too. :)

Carolyn: What an amazing, light-filled garden you have--delightful. I'm curious--what plant do you have growing as that glorious cover on your pergola? It's very pretty. Thank you for sharing this with us--I found it very inspirational!
