Morning in Palm Springs

One of the things I enjoy most about living in Palm Springs are the mornings. I have long been an early riser, so it is normal for me to be up around 4:30 or 5:00 am. I especially enjoy having my morning coffee outside to watch the sunrise and cast its beautiful orange and pink hues to paint the San Jacinto mountains. This morning Duncan was off in the front patio and was suspiciously quiet, so I walked around to see what he was up to. Here he is, keeping a watchful eye on things. Duncan loves to run around the garden using the cactus and palms as an agility course. He bobs and weaves at top poodle speed to make his way around obstacles. 

He loves how some of the garden is mounded higher in certain places,like this palm tree in the photo to the right. I took this photo fairly early--it was around 6:30 am and the sun was quite bright. You can see my own shadow cast as I held the camera to snap this photo. I like capturing these morning moments, they always seem precious to me. The promise of a new day, I suppose. It is the unexpected nature of what the day will bring, and all that. Tomorrow I'll show you a photo of one of the cactus plants that seemingly overnight pushed out four flowers that appear to be ready to bloom tomorrow. I'll be up early again Sunday to see if they are ready to open...

There is something beautiful and peaceful about the early morning.
And must be beautiful to watch Duncan on his "agility" course.
