One Foggy Morning in July

we wandered outside wondering just exactly what fog felt like,
it intrigued us of course, as we never quite reached it,
fog can be funny like that can't it!

we played long jump in a grassy clearing

watched the dew collect in moist patches on our shoes

admired dewdrops all over our Golden Diosma

and found our first daffodil budding

also covered in dew

waiting to greet us.

Daffodils are my birthday flower.
(At least in my mind they are.)

My mother tells me of how they were blossoming in our front lawn
as she brought me home from hospital.
My birthday is only a week away so we'll see how many are blooming for us then.

Happy Birthday a week early, Cee! May you have a wonderful and satisfying birthday, and a garden full of daffodils on your day!

Love the photos! The beautiful bright colors in the fog, they just jump out at you! The girls are adorable in their pretty purple winterwear..a bright spot in a dreary day! Thanks so much for sharing!

Jemimah always loves to try and touch the 'clouds' too.

Yoy daffs are just that bit in front of mine.

It looks like a lovely day!
What a beautiful greeting to your birthday : )

What a lovely morning's adventuring...What date is your birthday? Mine's in a few days, the 25th. Imagine Daffodils in July!

Nadene said...

Beautiful photos! Daffodils already? Spring is nearing and I had better prepare my vegetable gardens!

Cee said...

Thankyou again for your lovely comments.

I have now enjoyed my birthday (on the 28th Millie) and we have only the one daffodil. Still we saw plenty of colour as the soursobs/oxalis are now in bloom. A sure sign that late winter is here and spring is just around the corner.
