Morning in the Courtyard

I woke up to find these beauties awaiting my eyesight this morning in my back yard! How devine! Dsis Liz loves to surprise me with visual lovliness from outside my back door. Once my eyes were open I took the camera and went out into the courtyard to embrace the morning and enjoy the beauty.

I looked around my little yard to see if I could capture the "Red, White and Blue" of the decor for our Fourth of July and look what my wandering eye did appear:

I will take time this weekend to sit outdoors, perhaps with a book, and take in all the sounds of the neighborhood. Reflect on our Nation's birthday and our land of the free. It is supposed to be a beautiful weekend. Enjoy!

What a sweet sis to put those out for you to awaken to. I just have to smile when I see sunflowers, they are such a happy flower. Enjoy your beautiful back yard retreat,

Hi Susie,
Your courtyard is so pretty! I love the sunflowers! I have tried to grow them myself and have never had much luck. Thank you for stopping by for a visit!
