Summer daybreak

This is why I am hoping I will wake up and get up early tomorrow and Sunday and get out and move my legs back and forth. 
This is what my side yard looks like just as the sun is coming up over the trees in the east.
It's warm-cool and it's easy to move and easy to breathe and the animals who work the night shift are just becoming invisible for the daylight hours.
I love where I live.
I love summer.

Get out there and walk- who can exist that landscape. I'll walk with you!

June said...

Barb . . . you would have to crawl to be slow enough to "walk" with me.

I just read about a blogger friend in Nashville who said they just had an all-time record of 109! And the animals are looking everywhere for water. Your landscape looks MUCH better. :-)

So much green! I miss that from back east. Here, in the Land of Az, we were surrounded by wildfires in our lovely mountains. It is so dry and parched.

Why does everyone in blogville have parks for yards? it's insane! Not to mention, grossly unfair. If I had a yard like that, I'd probably get up for sunrise too.

I've just been catching up. I'm sorry you've had some goodbyes. There must be one heck of a crowd waiting at that darn Rainbow Bridge. Your garden's greenliness is inviting of rolls in cool grass. Savor life.

I haven't seen such a nice stone wall since I left R.I.
I would be exploring that wall for chipmunks.
Enjoy!

I love the early evening in summer. There's that golden light that turns our landscape into the colors of an old master's painting.

Love that BIG tree in the foreground June - do you know what it is? Boy have I been having trouble with motivation keeping my walks going. :)

DJan, I would not be moving if we had high temps of 100+. That's tough on humans and other animals.

Tamara, I do love the green. Arizona's gorgeous but I think I couldn't live without green. At least for a couple of months a year.

GLP, thanks. I love looking down on the lawn when it's freshly mown, looking at the mower tracks. :-)

English Rider, thank you. Good to hear from you.

Marcia, MiMau patrols that stone wall daily.

Nana, I love everything in summer, and I know what you mean about the early evening light.

Rose, it's a sugar maple tree. I think sugar maples are in the great majority here. It isn't all that big as sugar maples go, but it's a pretty tree. Motivation. Ugh. I hear you. The other evening as I came in the last lap I was yelling to the sky, "I hate this! I hate this! This is NOT FUN."

It is a lovely yard. We had some rain here this past week, but our yard is stillpretty yellow in spots.

Lulu said...

This is a bit like my dream garden, I bet your house is beautiful too :D I hope you get to go and enjoy it all xxx

Grandmother said...

Lovely yard, lovely photo of a lovely time of day. Your cherishing it and your choice to keep moving- loveliest of all!

Sightings said...

Me too . . . but not at 5:30 a.m.!

It's so wonderful loving where you live -- and early mornings are the best! Isn't summer just the best?

How pretty. It smells so good early in the morning, doesn't it? If it weren't for my dog, I wouldn't be up wandering around outside at the crack of dawn. I suppose I should feel grateful. *smile*

On mornings like these , the world is twice as large and everything is possible .
