In the quiet of the morning.

Up before dawn to get Kevin back to the range this week. I contemplated crawling back in bed for an hour or so before my appointment this morning, but it was such a pretty morning. It was much more inviting outside, where I could look around and appreciate what I have a little before the craziness of the day begins.

I'm so excited about the fruit trees bearing fruit. I can't wait to make a pie!

Do you see that? Can you see it?
Yes, it is a pretty garden box that my brother helped me with. But look! Look!

My first tomato. It's turning red! That it is still on the vine is an accomplishment all in itself for us. If you recall, Annie loves to pick things that look bulbish. We lost a couple of apples before she started to understand that if she leaves them be they will grow into something yummy.

The weeds even looked pretty this morning...

This I'm not so sure about...Is it a weed? Or is it an actual domesticated vine? It looks familiar, but I don't know what it is. If you know what it is, do tell!

I don't know what it is, but it's pretty. I love those quiet moments before the day truly gets out of hand.
