Early morning fog

The clock alarmed at 4:20 this morning. Yes, Poppy's vacation is over. He had to be at work at 6:00 a.m. By the way, wonder when my vacation is going to start! At 6:00 I was washing sheets and out hanging the bedspread on the clothesline. 



It's cool here this morning and the steam or fog over the pond made for a good picture. Looks like soon there will be lots of Iris in bloom...another reason to bring the camera out. I might as well add AA Batteries to the grocery list. :)



No only are the flowers thriving this spring but the weeds! Good gosh! Look at the red rock path around the Iris bed and down to the bridge...It is overwhelming! 



At least once while the snowball bush is in bloom, I have to stand underneath and look up at the blue sky. My excitement for the day, that is unless I walk up on another snake.




Where are you off to in such a hurry? I kinda like it under here...we might catch a mouse.

Need to get up from here and get busy. I've got to run to the grocery store...AGAIN! Then, hopefully I can work outside!! Thank you for visiting.

Love,
Henny

  3. You need rechargeable batteries and a charger in the long run it is worth it. I still use one camera that takes AA batteries. Such a pretty morning at your place! Yes you should schedule that vacation! :)

  8. Still chilly here, but your snow ball bush gives me hope. At least our weeds haven't woken up yet!

  10. Here in Michigan we're not as far along with spring blooms as you, so I'm loving your photos.
    We just got socked with a cold blast this week but things are looking up.
