I'll give you one guess what I'm thankful for today.
If you guessed bright blue skies, then you would be correct.
When I wake up to a sky like this, I feel happy and energetic.
Unlike gray skies which make me feel tired and lazy.
Unless it is just one gray day accompanied by rain.
In that case I feel slightly lazy yet very cozy.
Funny how the color of the sky can affect my mood, but it does.
I took a little stroll through the garden this morning to see what was blooming.
These shrub roses have been going strong all summer and continue on into the fall.
The Sasanqua Camellias are loaded with buds and a few blooms too.
Azaleas in orange. . .
Pink. . .
and white too.
Not the clearest photo. I was trying to capture the bee who was wiggling around in there.
I probably say this ever year around this time, but those Encore Azaleas have been great performers. Pretty in springtime and then again in the autumn season.
Last, but not least, the water lilies are still going strong.
Growing up I always thought of November as a dreary month.
Everything seemed to die or go dormant fading into a landscape of gray and brown.
In time the frost will arrive here too.
For today I'll enjoy a world filled with bright colors.
