The Sun Shone!

 The other evening as we readied for supper, look what came streaming in the window!
 Now the magnolias can open up....
 The bloodgood maples leaves can glow in the evening sky...
 and I can check out the nursery beds for coffee grinds to me my grinds!
 See...there they are...all dark and smelling good!
This is between you and me,
cos I get shewed away every time I start devouring them.
 Still following me I hope...
this is a miniature hosta growing on a rock
with a clematis entwined on the wrought iron rail.
Cool colour, eh!
 This path leads me back to the house where I can sit and look out the window again.
Anytime of day you'll find me here in the side window
checking out the vet's visitors.
Today was special because no one was wet,
just drenched in the sun's rays!


  1. Loving that shot of the Maple leaves! m.

  2. No wonder you have so much energy all the time!!
    I just love the nursery beds and everything that surrounds your place... so cozy and green and nice. So do you stay quiet watching the vet's visitor's or do you break into barks? Gracie would be a bad girl... I just know.

  3. Oh dear, Sophie -- do you really need a caffeine high? You're hyper enough already!

  4. What a nice walk around your garden! The hosta is cool looking!

    Coffee grinds? EW!

  5. I love the pics of you tending to your garden! SMOOCHES :)

  6. You have the prettiest colors where you live! Are the coffee grounds really tasty? Dad just started drinking coffee, maybe I can convince him to put his coffee grounds out in our garden. Hmm...


  7. We actually go to Starbucks and ask for the leftover grinds. They are happy to dispose of them and bag them up in their own foil bags! All gardeners know this and there is a rush to get them sometimes.

  8. and sun rays look beautiful together. t'other side looks very inviting!

  9. What a lovely post. The photo of you through the screen looks like a painting on canvas. Your nursery beds are wonderful. Are either of your dads landscapers or gardeners? Your plantings are always so stunning!

  10. We just got coffee grounds to put on our roses. Your garden is just gorgeous. Get out there and soak up some rays.

    You look beautiful highlighted in the sunlight.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  13. Into each life a little sunshine must fall. Enjoy it while you can. It's been a wet one so far. The garden is loving the rain though. Looks great.
