Outside My Door

Outside my door,
the new day is beckoning me to once again, come out and see what it has in store......
the early morning is already filled with the sounds
of the busy birds, chattering and making their nests.


Everything is fresh and damp from the rain that fell in the night.


Outside,in the shed, the new chicks are waiting for me to graduate them to the hay filled hen house...........but ......not yet.



The barnyard gang is already out and busily quaking their hello.




The cotton field lies silent, the early morning haze still hanging over it.





The woods still have a morning haze hanging in the low growth....






as the sun shines it's rays through the trees.......this is one of the quietest spots in the woods.....
peaceful.








Salem has been out way before sunrise, chasing this and that....now slowing down to take a rest.







Sophie, is ready for a long morning walk.... everything has a wonderful new morning smell.










On our walk, we spot a beautiful butterfly.......









and startle a coachwhip snake so bad that he rushes up a tree.











This time of year....all of the thorny plants I have previously told you about, are dressed in their prettiest......this bush is covered in thorns and hard berries of saphire blue.












The small cactus is putting on its small prickly pears....













and my favorite cactus by the barbed wire fence is covered in buds....














of the prettiest colors.....















and those thorns as well.















The cactus blossom looks just like a rose when it is opened up and some interesting creatures are taking advantage of the moisture trapped inside of it's petals.

















We've made it back home.....and the greenhouse is full of work for me today. So I think I will not go inside for awhile when so much is waiting for me....
outside my door.
Now.......what is waiting for you....outside your door? I would love to hear!

Thank you for the lovely walk this morning, Kathleen!
mmmm.... outside my door this morning:
The garden to finish planting.
The rabbit room needs a good cleaning.
No baseball games means time to stay home and play with the kids and enjoy the sunshine.
Happy Memorial Day.

I always enjoy tagging along on your walks! What beautiful, peaceful scenes this morning. Sophie and Salem look especially chipper this morning! I need to give Harriet (dog) a bath which means, I too will get one! I also need to do some weeding.

Awesome place you have there! I had no idea how pretty cactus could be! Outside my door is my garden which is growing wonderfully and my chickens who are wanting some company.

A desert walk, and a beautiful one too. Thank-you.

Oh, Kathleen, the walk with you was wonderful, except my walk would have ended with the snake when I would have to go back to the house and change my pants.

This was a neat walk. I loved seeing everything through your eyes!

What's outside my door is a chair on the Patio that I look at the results of all the digging and planting that's been done...There is more to come at "Harvest time" and it's all so exciting..your walk is inspiring and I would have beat that snake up the tree...if I wasn't to scared to move :o) Ginny
