Good Morning, Sunshine

I stayed up until about 2 a.m. last night and thought, surely, I would sleep in this morning. I'm so glad I didn't. In fact, I wish I'd gotten up sooner.

When I looked out the window this morning it was around 7:00. And it was beautifully bright and foggy. I ran for my camera, and in flip-flop feet, I walked all around the yard in the dewy grass snapping pictures. I love foggy mornings!

It was absolutely divine!

This is my dad's pasture, which is adjacent with our backyard. He has goats, ducks, and geese that roam around the catfish pond to the left of these trees. My horse, Ginny, stays out there, too, but unfortunately, all the animals were scarce this morning.

Someone has been busy. There were lots of spider webs spun along the fence.

The hydrangea bushes are blooming, and it looks like they're going to be quite generous with their blooms this year. Yay!

I hope you enjoyed the photos. Have a glorious weekend!

Linking to Photography Week @ A Nest for All Seasons



  1. Happened to be on my blog when I saw my "followers" click to the 400 mark and I think you are number 400. You should get some kind of prize. :) Anyway, welcome, and your photos are FABULOUS! You really need to sell them, really, any of them would be snatched up quickly I am sure. You have the eye to capture beauty.

  2. I'm your newest follower, Christa. :-) Those first two photos especially, are hauntingly beautiful!! We get the same thing here when the fog hovers over our creek in the morning. Isn't it just a thrill!

  3. Christa, have you thought about enabling your email on your blog? If you have your email address on your profile, it means that people can easily respond to your comments, rather than posting a response on one of your blog posts (which may make it seem totally irrelevant to the post - like this is. lol)Anyway, also wanted to say I enjoyed your comment on the Cranberry Morning post about living on a farm. Your comment made me laugh, for your story is not atypical of kids who grew up on a farm. I may have already responded to this in another of your posts.) Hope you have a lovely Sunday.

  4. Hi ~~ Love your bible verse John 10:27! Praise the LORD.


  5. Thanks Christa for following me. You just made my day. :)

    God Bless You,

  6. Oh my! I'm gad you didn't sleep in too! Thanks for sharing God's pretty morning with me!

  7. I love your photography so much! This looks exactly like my backyard (especially the spider web part) with the fog and the field.

    Thanks for the inspiration.
