dawn light this morning. everything washed clean by last night's soft showers.
i almost never take photos this early.
but i wanted to collect this small moment. a little time capsule of a sleep-filled morning. when i'm just coming awake.
and looking so FRESH. so radiant.
3 blooms opened last night while i slept!
also while i slept... a band of racoons frolicked under my window. they got so loud with their screechy calls back and forth and growling I woke up in the middle of the night, leaned out the window and scolded them. they ignored me. but i drifted back to sleep anyway.
i like being surrounded by wild furry creatures who have parties under my window at night. so charmed! i think they come onto the back patio and drink from the fountain at night. maybe they paused last night to sit and stare up at the flowers. maybe they reached up and licked a petal or two.
it's a nice thought.
