Today's Fantasy Garden
It was early morning and I was in a little corner of my backyard waiting for some sort of performance to begin. My little garden theater was in deep shadow but I could hear the rustling of leaves and the sounds of other tiny spectators waiting with me for the curtain to go up. The stage was ready, decorated in a soft blur of the deep blues and greens of the flowers and foliage. When the sun barely peeped over the Rocky Mountains to the east, a splash of morning light turned water drops and bokeh into a fantasy land. Then a sunbeam found its way through the trees and hit a large boulder in the background, creating a perfect spotlight. Finally, the leading lady took her place, making my garden fantasy show for the day perfect.
