Here is the view of this morning's light over the garden... its a gorgeous time of day and the flower beds are moist with dew.
By midday though, the sunshine is brilliant white and we have been grateful for the shade provided by our new pop-up patio tent...
This afternoon we watched a number of mourning doves sunning themselves in the warm gravel, spreading their wings and seeming to love it!
Its a beautiful sight!
We are amazed at how things are growing in our garden, the grasses, the climbers, the hydrangeas, the roses...and the back bed has brought us so much joy as native perennials have come into bloom in the absence of the large rambling honeysuckles we removed while creating the landscaping. Along with the wild flowers, we now have sapling apple trees! Very exciting.
Here is one of my favourite views from the front of the house looking towards the back...
It is the motto of our lives...how we met, how we created a love story across an ocean, how we joined our lives and lived in England for over a decade and it is how we arrived at this moment in time....
And while love is all you need...it is soooo much better with one of these!
Yes, we have decided to get another dog, well...a puppy who will become a dog...this is Dill, as a puppy...he will be the Dad...and this is him all grown up...
And this is Lyra, who will be the Mom, if all goes according to plan in October!
We might have to change our sign...
