Early Sunday


                                                                                      Available for purchase here

Another beautifully mild, misty morning ahead of a warm sunny spring day.




I was not the only out for a walk along Fig Tree Avenue in the delightful early morning air.




The jetty where much fishing has been happening. Three of our children are fishing there as I write this.




I could hear the traffic on the bridge, but not see it.




Our three eldest girls were helping with music again at church, giving us time for a play while they set up and practiced.







Perfect catch of the glider on its landing.




The view westward from church, very green and rural right now with cattle dotted over the hillsides.

A tiny wildflower which appeared to be a cross between a pea and a miniature lavender. Then we all headed inside, ready for a 9:30 start.

Hope you all have a wonderful start to you day too.

Another great post. Beautiful images.

s.c said...

Wow, love the misty atmosphere. Great shots again

Jeanne said...

Those trees are TOTALLY AMAZING LOOKING! What are they? We saw some in Hawaii that reminded me a bit of these, but not really the same. The pictures of your children are great also. Did I see somewhere that you have 8 children that you homeschool. How incredible that is, and what a blessing from God in your life. Lovely photos, and hard to imagine spring, when we have fall. loved your post

Seeing Each Day said...

I had to put your firs two photos on hold while I caught my breath - superb. The photo of the scenery made just that little bit homesick for the northern part of the state that I grew up in. My favourite of all these favourites though is your last shot. Have a good week, Karen.

Pieces of Sunshine said...

Hi Jeanne! I have added a link to the post for more photos of these fig trees.

Yes, we are blessed with eight children, six daughters (including one set of twins) and two sons aged 3 through to 19, currently homeschooling the six who are school age.

Colleen Ryan said...

such beautiful pics. I love the foggy scenery, such peace and mystery in one image.

Magda said...

The first two photos feel for me like they are reading a visual poem to me....
Truly beautiful portrayals of a mystical morning Pieces of Sunshine, thank you.

The Countryside gives a spaciousness in which to breathe deeply in.

Beautiful sharing.
Appreciation from Magda and Family in Queensland.

Andy said...

I followed the link from Sunday Bridges to your blog. I'm glad I did because you have other fantastic photos for my eyes to feast on.

marijke said...

At first I want you to know that I have a great respect for you raising up 8 childeren. I have only 2 at the age of 16 en 19. Maybe in your country it's different then it is overhere. A difficult age I think. Not young childeren anymore but not adult either. I love your morningwalks and gougeous photo's you making. I wish I could walk with you but I have terrible fear of flying.
And make my trip to Austrialia swimming is not going to work haha.
Have a beautiful day.
gr. Marijke

Beautiful series of photos, the landscapes are gorgeous and the last shot of the little girl is just lovely.

Pieces of Sunshine said...

Marijke, thank you. Raising and schooling our children is a joy and hard work. Thankfully our children are all wonderful people, none are openly rebellious or overly difficult. Partly personality, partly homeschooling, parenting and God's grace that we have come so far with such joy. Four are teenagers now.

Swimming to Australia, no not going to work, we'll have to enjoy blog visiting instead. :)
