Early Morning Dew

Gone are the days of being able to sleep in late on the weekends. The girls get up at the crack of dawn and race around full of energy. So after being woken up 3 times already, I decided to get out of bed just before 9am (which is a 'sleep in' in this house anyway!).

It was pretty hot yesterday, but last night when things cooled down it was a good opportunity to open all the doors and windows and cool the house down with the crisp night air. To some of you who live in the city or suburbs, the thought of sleeping with just fly wire doors probably terrifies you, but here where we live we worry more about a snake or goanna coming in the door than a burglar!

It had been quite cool and foggy last night and all the plants had dew drops on them early this morning before the sun warmed up enough to melt them away. When I looked out the kitchen window I saw a spider web dotted with crystal like dew drops. Normally you wouldn't be able to see this spider web, but because of the dew it was quite visible and shining in the sun.

I found another dew covered spider web over our fish pond

Everything felt fresh and cool this morning, but the bright warm sun and clear blue sky showed that it was going to be a very warm day.

Although you can't really see in this photo, the farm workers from a neighbouring farm were out early this morning attending the veggie crops before the day warmed up to much. The clear blue sky was just stunning this morning.
