Good Monday morning..
I'm inviting all of you dear friends along for a stroll through my world'
My day begins by hopping out of bed, opening the shades to usually a glorious sunrise..

.. and sometimes with the moon still visible!

next into the living room to open patio drapes for furbabies..
gotta have that dewy fresh morning air..

Bubba G and BeBe guarding the screen from intruding squirrels..
excellent security system..
leaving them in charge..
I grab th Nikon and off I go for my morning stroll..
out the door..
I first spy the blue Plumbago has more blossoms..
nice and cool..

Next..bright red geraniums and fern planter bidding happy day!

a new addition to another garden is this plant..
can't determine whether it is a Thistle.. or not?

Delightful clump of Black Eyed Susans

and what a sunny  greeter!

a lone red and pink columbine..

More sunny mellow yellows..

... brown daisies..  love these colorful hardy perennials!

and more pretty blues..

such a pretty!

and my neighbor's colorful Clematis!
so after the stroll.. we return..
BeBe still on post.. good girl!
Bubba hard at work guarding the bed...
and I'm ready to prop my feet up here..

  17. Loui,
    What cute cats! I always have cat envy. I have been feeding my friend's cat while she is out of town. She thinks that it is hardship for me to do it but I LOVE that little kitty.

    I also enjoyed all those blooms! Blue and yellow look great together. My kitchen used to be those colors and I kind of miss it now.

welcome to my world of salty sunkissed breezes..
where time is not measured..
linger leisurely..
sift sugary white sand between your toes..
Make and take those wonderful memories..
leaving behind..only your footprints...
