Morning Visitors

“When in the fresh mornings I go into
my garden before anyone is awake,
I go for the time being into perfect happiness.”
- Cecilia Thaxter
I recently discovered some of Cecilia Thaxter's poetry and writings are available on line. I have been enjoying An Island Garden by Cecilia Thaxter

Aren't you lucky to have these charming and colourful visitors. These are super photos! And a perfect accompanying quote. I don't know Celia Thaxter, but this book is a charmer - with illus. by Childe Hassam yet! Thanks so much for posting the link.
