A warm July sunrise morning greeted us here in SoCal. I'm an early riser, so this was a pleasant sight to see. Then we began to make the rounds with our early morning chores. I couldn't help but feel as if the sky was a sea of caramel. For more sky photos visit, SkyWatch Friday.
Watering lots or flowers outdoors is an easy chore for me since everything is on an irrigation system. Plus, we've planted lots of drought-tolerant plants, like the Lantana above.
The Gerbera Daisy is easy to grow and they make lovely gifts to share with the parents of my piano students. For more beautiful flower pictures, visit Floral Friday Foto

There were lots of baby Egrets that day at the pier. They fly inland looking for water, too. I've mentioned them in former posts when the Egret landed on my roof. Also, you'll find a children's book review on one of my favorite true stories, Astro Steller Sea Lion.
Modeling clay was a happening for indoor play when we arrived home. The texture and feel of play dough are so important for development, plus so much fun to work with. My grandson is learning the feeling of squeezing!

I'm reading a sweet book that my mother-in-law recently gave me that doesn't have available cover art called,
Flower thoughts; a selection
It's a Peter Pauper Press Book (hardcover book) and it's by Louise Bachelder with illustrations by Eric Carle.
"There is not the least flower but seems to hold its head and to look pleasantly, in the secret sense of the goodness of its heavenly Maker."LadyD Books is linking up with:
