morning has broken



Good morning! It's a glorious day - the flowers are blooming, the sun is shining, and you can probably tell I've had my coffee!

Hope everyone has/is having a good day.

It looks like spring there. I know you are about 15 hours ahead of my time here in Florida, but I am not sure how your seasons go. I am ignorant about the rest of the world! It is the middle of winter in the USA, however, I am in the southernmost state, and the weather is very mild here. Hope you have a nice day! - you are already in the tomorrow that I will be in in several hours!

Hi, Jelly. It's a gorgeous picture you have posted. Is it your front yard?

It's been very nice here also, in the 60s F. with the sun shining. This kind of weather makes me want to start working in the yard already but it's too soon. Hope you day went well.

Thanks for your very nice comments. That was my "wake-up" call for the day. Things will be better between us now.

It won't be long before trees and plants will look as beautiful as yours, here in Kentucky. It has been so warm, as MotherKitty has stated that things are already emerging from the ground and trees are beginning to bud.

Jimmy is getting our garden site ready for Spring planting, as soon as it warms up a little more and the danger of frost ends.

As you are up and enjoying tomorrow already we are preparing to go to bed last night. It's almost like being in a time warp.

Hi, Jelly!

Hehe, the day cannot possibly be a good one until I've had my coffee. :) I'm so jealous of your lovely weather! But even when you get "winter" I don't think it will be nearly as cold and dreary as it can get here. I think I need to move.

Is that your garden, Jelly? The Crepe Myrtle looks so pretty, especially beside the contrasting colours in the other trees.

Actually, is that the city skyline I see in the background. Therefore, perhaps it's not your garden, just one that you borrowed?

Hi Tuffenuf, Motherkitty, Sandy, Heather, Manababies and Alice!

This photo is taken from our back deck, looking across to one of our neighbours' backyards. And yes, that's a bit of the city in the background...I'm giving location clues away here, aren't I?!

To those northern hemisphere-dwellers, it is summer here in Australia. It may look blissful, but it can be awfully humid and oppressively hot. Some days it is just bliss to go to work and be in the air-conditioning!

Oh, and Alice, is that pink-flowered tree a crepe myrtle? Who knew! (I'm terrible with plant and tree names...I just thought it was pretty!)

You sound so bright and bubbly today! I'm planning to put some of those gorgeous Crepe Myrtles in my front yard soon, I just love them.

John Cowart said...

Our neighborhood watch group planted 50 such crepe myrtles along the road, but all the leaves have fallen till spring even though the temp here in north Florida is in the mid-70s. We'll prune about a third off the branches to encourage the trees to flower more next summer.

Hi Jellyhead; Beautiful picture and the tone of your blog makes the sunshine everywhere.....Have a great day.....I am, it's still around 50degrees here in Ohio, but I'm sure we will be in for some cold snowy weather yet.....but the sunshine and warm (for this time of year) weather, just makes me want to go out and work in my yard.....I can't wait for things to green up.......

Love the photos.

It's been warm in N. Carolina so far this winter but we still have a ways to go to spring.
