Coffee in hand, I walk barefoot through the morning grass…the sun is just coming up over the horizon…as I walk over to my little patch of Heaven, my garden.
It is here in the quiet of the morning that I find myself getting lost for a few moments in the colors and smells of my garden. I love the smell of tomato plants and the first thing I do is smell them! I then check for new life in the cucumbers and pea pods and peppers and see if any can be picked for dinner tonight. Walking around I see flowers starting to bloom in the pumpkin patch, which makes me smile and I think about Autumn and Halloween and The Great Pumpkin!
As I sip my coffee, I say good morning to the bunnies, the gophers, and the chipmunks who inhabit my secret garden and listen as a lone bird can be heard singing a morning lullaby.
This is my favorite time of day…peace, tranquility, and solitude. It is my little slice of Heaven….my secret garden.
