Lessons from the Morning Glories

A blog by Chicken Wrangler Sara

I am a morning person. I wake up before my alarm goes off at 5:00 most mornings. I enjoy seeing the sun rise over the chicken yard and hearing the quiet before everyone else wakes up. Another thing I enjoy is seeing the morning glories in our back yard.Originally they were along the fence but this year I have noticed them out in the back yard.

Then I noticed them among the canna lilies in the front yard.

 

 

 

Next they appeared on the fence outside my classroom then on the grass close by.

 

 

 

 

I’m thinking there is a lesson in these morning glories.  They spread their beauty and cheer wherever they go.  Perhaps I should do the same.

I went to take pictures of the flowers one afternoon and discovered they were wilted.I think there is a message here also.  If every day starts at 5:00 am, it is ok to wilt, i.e. take a nap, every afternoon.  I like that plan.

  1. You are a blogger after my own heart. Here’s to an early start and a power nap in the afternoon. As my Irish friend would say, “Good on ya.”‘
