June Morning

Posted on | June 7, 2011 | 3 Comments

If it weren’t for having a dog, I wouldn’t get outside in the early hours of a June morning, long before the thermometer creeps past 90. I wouldn’t see the lake, calm and gray in the mist, nor the bunches of peonies at their peak, which will probably wilt as the day wears on. I wouldn’t get to watch  the progress of neighbors’ front-yard vegetable gardens, or listen to the kid crossing guards chatter at the corner. I wouldn’t get to start my day in such a pleasant way.

    Lovely images, lovely words. A sense of calm came over me as I read this. A wonderful way to start the day.

    Beatiful peonies! I wonder how mine are doing in our vacant (not for long!) backyard…

    I feel the same way. When I’m about to leave the house to let the dog out I’m thinking “ughh!” but once I’m out there it’s so peaceful and the fresh air is a great way to start the day. Just another way dogs make our lives better!
