For the month of August, I'm joining in A Month of Mindfulness, hosted by Susannah Conway. She provides a list of photo prompts and encourages participants to share, or not share the results on social media. I'll be sharing. Perhaps not every day, and perhaps I'll combine photos. Why don't you consider joining in, as well?
Our home is set on a west-facing hillside in the city and we're surrounded by large trees on the east, so sunlight comes a bit later to our garden. I took these photos just after my husband left for work, around 7:45. The white geranium caught some of the first rays peeking through the forsythia bush.
Our "Secret" rose still in shade, but the unclouded light of morning shows her petals to perfection.
Am I cheating by including other photos? I don't think so. This is what I picked from my garden yesterday. It feels so luxurious to go out and see what's available for dinner. Did you notice the top tomato? One of my tomato plants is producing tomatoes that have grown together. They look odd, but still taste delicious.
Last night's dinner - flatbreads (caramelized onions, figs, goat cheese, basil) and salad. I find choosing what to make for dinner on hot days challenging, do you? I planned to grill the pizza outdoors, but our temperatures have moderated and I used the oven instead.
One last morning light photo - the sunlight visible on hydrangea stems.
