Looking east towards Mt Shasta
I'm always up before dawn with Lucy
wanting to be fed and then she goes back
to sleep and I go outside to water the garden,
fill up the bird feeder and listen to the day begin.   
Last night it rained a bit and this morning
the birds were more active flying about
and I could hear the Canada geese honking
overhead. I think fall is just around the corner!

You can see Mt Shasta on the right.
Hopefully we continue to have some rain.
Have a lovely day!

  4. Kathe,

    We've gotten some rain on and off this week. I expect more will make its way into our area by the end of the weekend with Florence moving inland. We are far enough out of the path but the rain & windy will spill into East Tennessee. I have family North Carolina. I pray for their safety. Thanks for popping in for a visit and linking up.

  5. Such beautiful views need to be savoured, and dawn/morning is a great time to do it. Me, I like to view things at night, mainly wildlife for supper, but it is still a delight to see. During the day, basking in the shade and a light breeze watching the cloud and nature pass by (professional work aside) is how life should be...

  6. Such beautiful photos.

  7. That’s a lovely way to start your days, i hope you continue to get rain as long as you need it.
