While you were sleeping


While you are sleeping I'm up each morning bright and early 


waiting for the sun to come up with the birds.



The mornings really are the very best part of the day.


doesn't this fellas face crack yea up.


Collecting my breakfast from the garden,


Fresh silver beet



and fresh eggs .

for eggs on silver beet

Eating outside is always a joy.

I've always got company - (mother sheep and her ram) watching me eat my breakfast and have me cuppa tea.


and of course the beloved Molly goat.- An old girl of 14 years but still waddles up to top of bank to have breakfast with me.

  2. Thanks for sharing such a beautiful morning in NZ. It is the only sunny morning I will see as we are fogged with another day of dreary rain. Absolutely loved the indignant look on the birdhouse bird's face. He or she looks like their telling you where you can put your camera and it is not pointing in their direction. As I was watching the video of Dear Molly climbing up the hill to join you for a lovely breakfast, I could not help but notice all the birds singing to one another. What a joyful noise to wake up to! Mama lamb & her ewe do not seem to know what to make of Molly appearing. It's easy to tell that Molly is the brainier of the two species & definitely has the best smile of anyone in the barnyard too. Have a good week.

    1. I will try and get the dawn chorus on video one morning it really is delightful and noisy. We have planted natives hoping to bring the birds and it has worked.

  5. Nothing like being a morning person----I think they get a lot more done. Even with a full 7 hours or so of sleep it takes me about an hour and a half to completely wake up and get started moving in the morning. Just a difference in metabolisms I guess or maybe different circadian rhythms. It is a beautiful time of day and so lovely and quiet even in town.
