In The Garden

"Morning is the best of all times in the garden.  The sun is not yet hot.  Sweet vapors rise from the earth.  Night dew clings to the soil and makes plants glisten.  Birds call to one another.  Bees are already at work."

It's funny, my sister and I were just talking about mornings in the flower garden, all the things mentioned in the quote! Beautiful photo Diane, I love the bee and the sun shining through the petals.

I love early morning. It seems that the bees are coming back - fingers crossed here, after a few years of disappearing.

The detail on that bee is quite amazing. You can see pollen on his back and everything so clearly. I wish I'd get up early, but I also stay up way too late, I guess it's because it's quiet.

No dew to be found here. :/ But I do enjoy getting out and watering plants early in the morning. Wishing you a bright and beautiful day. Tammy
