My Early Morning Helper

I have been trying to sneak away while the baby is still sleeping so I can prepare garden beds in advance of the Garden Expo. I have been pleasantly surprised by a willing little helper the last couple of mornings. The beauty of everything in bloom is Eden-like. Spending just a little borrowed time here in the morning makes for a soul-nurturing start to the day. Going back inside to make breakfast and then 2nd breakfast or "elevensies" doesn't seem so mundane when I have already feasted my eyes on blooming sunshine. I think it puts my helper in a better mood too.
