Once again I'm having trouble getting my blog to post. This is my third attempt just like yesterday. The internet keeps trying to go down. I was up about 5:30 and as daylight appeared I stopped to look out my patio doors. I love my backyard. We have a small garden lined with blackberry vines that borders a field planted in wheat. It is such a beautiful dark green and is beginning to head. I love it when it turns to gold before harvest. A couple rabbits are looking for breakfast and a squirrel scampers up the silver leaf maple tree in the middle of the yard. Four cardinals were in the garden along with two bluebirds. We have lived here 35 years and I have never seen bluebirds here before. I love my backyard and when the weather gets warm enough I sit on the patio say my prayers and enjoy the peace and quiet. The view is beautiful with 60 to 70 acres of farm ground planted in wheat or beans or corn (wheat is my favorite) that expand to trees that line the creek.
Donna had her grandchildren this morning so I walked by myself. I enjoyed the iris on the last street. White with lavender and the bottom of the bloom was deep purple. A White dogwood was in bloom across the street. Quiet morning with the birds once again talking to each other. Talked with a neighbor and invited her to the backyard to take pictures of the cardinals and bluebirds. She and her husband are into photography and she has tried to get a picture of the cardinals for a year. Just never catches them at the right time. She had not seen bluebirds out here either and she has lived here a little longer than we have.
It has been a laid back day here. Cloudy and overcast. Intermittent rain falling that made for a wonderful day to enjoy a nap. And I did.
