“Morning Freshness” Columbine – Nora Barlow

“Morning Freshness” - Columbine - Nora Barlow.

“When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive—to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love—then make that day count!”
― Steve Maraboli

As I sat, yesterday morning, sipping a coffee, on my back deck. I looked over my now lush garden. The rains have stopped, the temperatures are climbing and I can savour these moments, if only on weekends.

One of my columbine plants, is enormous, probably the result of several plants growing in a single location. Even at that, it towers almost a full meter in height, three times the height of its neighbours, and it is thick with blossoms.

I got up to take a better look at all the blossoms and noticed that the morning mist still clung thickly to the petals, like little jewels, adding further drama to the scene. Not wanting to miss this moment, as the lifespan of the blossoms is quite brief, I grabbed my camera and made a quick image to preserve this image to share today.

It reminds me of what a privilege it really is to be alive,as said so well in the quote I chose today.
