What A Wonderful Morning!

I woke up this morning to a beautiful day! The sun was shining and the birds were chirping. It was the perfect day to have my breakfast outside in our front courtyard.

If you have time, listen to this little clip and hear what I heard while I was waking up. Wish you were here.....

Don't you love the dawn chorus Penny? It makes waking early so worthwhile. Thanks for the sound clip - really neat.

Absolutely heavenly Penny! And the view is just as beautiful as the sounds

Rosie's Whimsy said...

Ok, I am going to have to listen later. I'm sitting outside this morning at 6 am and I couldn't distinguish the birds on the clip from the birds singing to me here! HA! What was I thinking?

Have a great day, my friend!
((hugs)) Rosie

Just one of the things I love so much about this time of year. I sleep with the windows open and the gentle morning light and song of the birds always makes me so happy when I wake up. Thank you for sharing your morning with us:>)

I'd love to be there! Our birds sound like that too - I can't get enough of it! ::Jill

pammiejo said...

I agree - it's just a wonderful venue in which to wake-up. I sit, coffee in hand, and enjoy those same sounds. We have left our bird feeders up for the summer so that attracts the birds and keeps them coming in closer to the house. Didn't God do marvelous things?

Rebecca Ramsey said...

How joyful. Just like your blog.
Your porch is just lovely!

I have a garden home courtyard. That's why I didn't post on the front porch theme yesterday. (Sigh..) Love my courtyard though! I have a Target gazebo set up there.

Penny

That is my favorite sound. I have a bird and love to hear him sing. I have birds in my backyard that sing, and I have nature sounds with birds on my blog.
So I guess you can say I am a bird lover of sorts.

Barb said...

Hi Penny,

My granddaughter and I just listened to the birds. What a lovely sound. I could sit and listen for a very long time.

Take care,
Barb

Your hanging baskets are so pretty, too.

What a lovely dawn chorus!

I am more of a night owl but I can so relate to sitting out with a pot of tea and a cream scone in the garden just breathing in the rose, lavender, honeysuckle, jasmine, and mock orange scents.

KarenHarveyCox said...

It sounds wonderful Penny, how peaceful and what a lovely place to be. Karen

Gina2424 said...

Lovely!

Pat said...

Hearing the bird song was such a treat Penny! I went into Manhattan today and missed hearing the birds at my bird feeder. I heard a lot of sirens and construction sounds instead ...ugh!
Love your pretty hanging baskets too!
Hugs, Pat

Meggie said...

What beautiful music to hear upon awakening! I'm glad that my porch isn't the only one that isn't yet ready for photos. Can't wait for your final reveal, Penny.

So very beautiful! That's why I love sitting outside, so I can hear the same thing! Listening to the birds sing is something that just calms me right down.

Brenda said...

Wow such a sweet sound. Jersey boy is sitting here as I blog with his ears turned up wondering what the heck lol.

Such a heavenly post, Penny.
Thank you for sharing it with us.
You asked about the letters...we used scrapbooking paper..oh, the array of patterns and colors. My granddaughter and I have so much fun doing them and I am working on some for my kitchen right now. They are such fun to do...( I think an "OH LA LA" done in the French countryside colors would be perfect for your cottage) :o)
hugs, bj
