Tinker Verve

creating with spirit & enthusiasm…often with great results

Love this Life!

It is such a beautiful, perfect morning here.

My Kids got in about 11:30 last night with an ‘Extra’, so I canceled my regular 5:30 walk and slept in til about 6:00.  With the ‘Extra’ sleeping on the couch it kind of mixed up my morning a bit so I just went outside and walked around…moved some hoses here and there, pulled some weeds, talked to the chickens, checked the gopher traps…you know, the usual!

I also grabbed my camera.

This is my favorite {wild} bloom this time of year.  It is breath-taking but you have to get up real close to appreciate it.  Each tight little bud literally bursts into a tiny, delicate bloom.

While sitting on this rock in my yard…

I look at this.

It’s so tranquil and serene this morning with only the sound of birds, a sprinkler and in the distance a {mooing} cow.

I’ve picked my first peas this week…

and my first strawberries…another favorite!  Oh, my!…are they ever a favorite!

Cash loves to go everywhere with me.  He’s {become} such a good dog!

  2. Good Morning Elaine! I will say it again, I love your pictures, what a beautiful morning!! Thanks for sharing! It just made my morning more beautiful too! When you take a picture (esp like the one above of the flower) don’t you feel like you’re praising God a little? I always do, it’s just there is nothing prettier than just raw nature…

  5. How tranquil! I think I would pour me a cup of coffee and sit out there on your rock every morning. What a beautiful place and you are so lucky it is yours. How Blessed!
