Well .. I was wide awake at 4:30 AM this morning ... the Robinator must have known because he began his song EXACTLY when I knew I wasn't going to get back to sleep again.
So what do you do at that time of the morning ?
I am SO grateful that sunrise doesn't take all that long this time of year .. so after a bit of early morning tea/toast ... I sound like an old lady .. hey ... I'm NOT ! *SMIRK*
I went out and took some pictures of the back garden .. in the "after the rain" condition it has been in for days on end.
There is something to be said about that early morning glow in the garden, I wish it could apply to me?
Who has the bigger and better throne to lure that queen in ?
Speaking of GOT .. my friend Barry of Teza's Hortus Magnificum blog has an amazing wool business called Knitting Wolf Luxury Yarns .. hand dyed wool in stunning colours which some are dedicated to GOT in fact .. my favorite is "Cersei" which has sold out for the moment .. but what a spectacular range of colours there are .. if you are a knitter looking for unusual, hand dyed wool, you have to have a look at his work and his site .. you won't be sorry to have a peek at least !
Now for all about the mystery Dogwood tree (Kousa was the only name on the Home Depot tag)
I have driven myself MAD looking at picture after picture and I still have no idea which cultivar this is .. funny enough ? I thought I was buying a white one because of course they were not in flower at time of purchase.
Can anyone help me ?
