In the morning

My favorite time of the day right is in the morning. We live in such a beautiful place. The sunrises are sometimes more magnificent than the sunsets. I love leaving work at first light, coming home through the beautiful evergreens that have been beaten by the ocean wind and standing in my yard under a pink sky. It's magical.

As I drive along and look to the east I'm welcomed by a beautiful pink and orange sky, sun rising. As I look to the west the island is still sleeping, sky deep blue with stars. You can almost see the line down the middle where the colors are colliding.

I felt like the flowers starting blooming so early, then I realized it was almost April. I have a few bulbs that came up earlier than I had thought and our weeping cherry tree is in full bloom.

The weeping cherry is a beautiful canopy of white. Even after taking several large limbs off of the tree last year, it continues to sprawl over both ours and the neighbors yard. It's enormous and absolutely stunning.

I will be so sad when the flowers are gone. But in their place will be a thick layer of green leaves.

I apologize for my seemingly sporadic blogging over the last week or so. I've been tired and didn't have the opportunity last weekend to write up a few posts. Writers block perhaps in combination with wanting to relax every second of my 4 day weekend with my lovely husband. I will make up for lost time soon.

So beautiful! You're so lucky to live where you do!

I used to work really early mornings, and I remember that feeling of having the whole world to yourself while everyone else is sleeping. Ahhh....

The flowering trees are such a happy sight! When I lived in Colorado I use to love watching the sun rise and the way it cast light onto the Rocky Mountains. *Sigh* I miss that.
