Misty Morn




A lovely misty Sunday morning, perfect for an early morning walk. Fig Tree Avenue looked somewhat dreamy. Some folks were out walking, others were off fishing in the river.







One garden I passed had these lovely flowers, still wet from yesterday's afternoon thunderstorm as well as dew.







A beautiful old gate and fence along my way, we live in an older area of town.




An "old friend" to greet me on my return home, in exactly the same spot as I found him a few days ago.




Loving watching my blueberries grow. The plant is doing better now that I have removed it from its pot and established it in the garden.




Just at this point the sun came through the mist. I think my pansies are having a little party in the sunshine.




While on my walk I was amazed at how many different birds I could hear. Several times I saw some rainbow lorikeets but wasn't able to snap one. I was delighted when mid-morning this fellow perched on our deck railing. As you can see from the white transfers, I'm still inside the glass door. He made a hasty getaway once we came closer, not before doing a little turn-around for me to catch. Hoping he may return soon, wonder if he may even be the same one who has been friendly in the last year or two.




Hope you day holds joys and beauties too.

Those blueberries: if they taste half as good as they look, they will still be worth growing.

You really have a gift in capturing the beauty of nature and our world.

I love the tree-arched road and the river - brings back very fond memories! :) Makes me want to come and visit.

I love the rose drenched in raindrops & dew. And, your resident Rainbow Lorikeet - gorgeous capture!!

Arija said...

Lovely foggy road. Your blueberries are much earlier than mine, as are your roses. Best cover those blueberries from the rainbow lorikeets.
A lovely post.

Callie @ InfiniteMonkey.co.nz said...

Wow that tree-lined road is gorgeous! As are the rest of your pics :)

Jennifer @ Studio JRU said...

Wow. What a walk that was! Everything is so beautiful. I love how the trees canopy the road in that first shot! And that bird... oh my goodness... can't believe you see something like that right outside your window! Looks like it is from a zoo! :)

ladyfi said...

What a lovely walk! That avenue of fig trees is amazing, and I loved the dewy flowers and bird!

Chic Homeschool Mama said...

WOW- incredible place! I love that first shot

likeschocolate said...

Love the tree lined street!

Jackie said...

I love that first photo, are those trees really fig trees? The rose is perfect and beautiful, one of my favourites, as are the pansies. The rainbow lorikeet is a pretty and colourful bird.
I planted my hazelnut bush into the garden this year as it was getting too big for its large pot, I'm hoping it will produce more than one nut next year!
Lovely photo's and the music and bird song is beautiful too.
