Suddenly there is more light

Fiona and I get up about 5.30am on the mornings Fiona goes to her exercise group. It did not seem so long ago that we were getting up in the dark and having to turn on lights just to get around the house. Though we are only a month into spring the sun is rising and flooding the valley by 5.30am. I think the photo below will be one of the last morning light photos I will be taking for a while.

And of course with the sun up the bees are very busy - the bottles brush trees were just alive with them.

And there are cascades of tiny blossoms.

And startling colour like the reds and yellow.

It won't be long before I'm walking in summer light.


  1. Nice to see your flower photos, was an interesting night here, candle lit dinner and early to bed, candle power not terribly good for doing things in, we did have a battery powered radio to catch up on the big state wide blackout. Interesting times.

  2. I'm loving the morning light, even though we are now on daylight saving. Which I also love... I wake at dawn regardless of the time on the clock. That cascading flowering plant is delightful. I'll be looking it up.
