Weekly photo challenge … Early

April 21, 2015

I am an early bird; each morning except Sunday I rise at 5 am.  I began this ‘habit’ in 1995 when studying for my degree for the Open University.  I was working full time and had a daughter still at home so I would do my study before the family awoke and I needed to get on my bike to do a 20 mile round trip to work.  I did graduate and no longer have to do such a long journey to work, but somehow this early rising bit has remained.  Now, I do yoga, meditate, drink tea and put the final touches to my daily blog post.  

At this time of year, I can, just before 7 am venture out into my little  back yard.  It is a blessed haven where I can sit with the final draft of my first pot of white tea; almost now lost its first rich flavour but still refreshing and warm. My walled garden isn’t not yet graced by the sun, but I, draped in a blanket, sit and wonder about the day ahead , rejoice at the new growth and absorb the peace even as the birds begin to wake noisily in the nearby sycamores.

      I miss you too … this garden is a wonderful distraction but also a place where I grieve a bit!
