There is something about the warmth of the sun on your back as you work in your gardens, listening to birds in the trees when you first wake in the morning as the sun is just rising, the smell of blossoms in bloom on the breeze as it brushes against your cheek. I always say Autumn is my favorite season, but the older I get, the more I appreciate spring. The weather overall may not be as nice here in Seattle as it will be come September, but whenever I wake and outside my windows I see blue sky, my mood immediately becomes one of joyful, giddy glee! We appreciate the sun here in Seattle more than many parts of the country, as it isn't something we see all of the time. I don't think that, at this time of year, we take it for granted. Strangers tend to smile at each other more often when they cross paths. Drivers are more courteous, happiness seems to be contagious.
So here are some photos that I took today out on the property. What a blissful day it was on Chestnut Farm~
