Mornin' all! It's a fabulous Saturday morning, the sun is shining, the birds are singing in the yard, and it's NOT HOT!

I enjoy early mornings the most. Before the temperatures rise and the world is still quiet. So with some coffee already down me I grabbed my camera and went outside to capture some moments.

Don't ask me what most of these plants are, but they have pretty flowers blooming on them now.

I really like these teeny little red ones up against the house. This is "Dianthus" or "flashing light":

The last trees in our yard to get foliage are the Russian Olives we have. They have a dark bark and light, silver/green coloured leaves. Very pretty! You can see some of the marigolds hubby planted behind the leaves of the Russian Olive here:

He also planted a lot of coleus around the yard:

Not sure what these are:

This was taken right outside sister Pammie's open bedroom window and she was sleeping at the time so I had to be quiet and not sneeze or cough.

Or laugh.

This little garden is beginning to fill in nicely. The round green ones up against the house are "Artemisia", Japanese Blood Grass beside those (they get really long and red and are gorgeous), and you can see the white flowers on the "Snow In Summer" plants:

Garden variety Sumac, with marigolds in the background:

I love this shot. The "Snow In Summer" with white flowers is in the foreground, and the Blue Spruce and Cherry tree in back:

And in the backyard, I love the way the shadows from the early morning sun play on the fence:

That's the Bishop's Weed along the fence that hubby is trying to kill off with Round Up. He wants to plant flowers in there instead, but Bishop's Weed overtakes everything else so it has to be gone first:

The MayDay tree is now devoid of all it's scented white flowers for the year. It's foliage is thick and the chickadees, robins and sparrows love this tree.

Hubby and I were looking the other day at picture I had taken about 7 years ago. This MayDay tree has grown about 4 times the size in that time!

One more week of work and then I'm home on a week's vacation. Hubby is off for 3 weeks at home starting now, so I hope he gets that back yard cleaned up!

Have a great weekend everyone and take good care of each other.

Love Jude
