Thursday morning gift

I got around early this morning to do a few chores before heading out to work. The ceiling fan on the screen porch was whirring gently, but the temps last night didn't fall that far so the air stirred by the fan felt warm on my face.

In the yard, I stepped to the spigot, cranked the water on, and dragged the hosepipe over to fill the birdbath and the fountain. The morning sun had just cleared the horizon and angled through the white pine to spotlight the moss that's thriving on the stones around the fountain. 

Pulling the phone from my pocket I snapped a few pictures, unsure what they would look like. Sunlight on the morning moss made the stones look as if they were upholstered in green velvet.

That image put a smile on my face. It was a Thursday morning gift.

    The green "velvet" is lovely!!

  2. Early morning can be magical.

  3. I always look at moss on the rocks as fairy carpets. It's so soft on the toes.
    Hope your temperature cools down. It's raining and cool this morning and I was planning on finishing planting the rest of my veggies this morning. I guess I'll have to use that time cleaning the house. sigh...
