Good Morning Sunshine

November 9th, 2016

This time of year, when the sun rises over the mountains in front of our house and the leaves come off the trees make for spectacular sunrises. Just about every morning Mr Chiots and I comment on how lovely it is.
It really doesn’t get any better than this, seeing this beauty every morning helps make the days less depressing as they get shorter and shorter.

Do you notice sunrises or sunsets more as the seasons change?

    Susy, trees are a wonderful thing. They also block the morning sunrise and sunset in the neighborhood where I live. During the summer months I go to Terra Nova Gardens 6:00am early in the morning and get to see the sunrise. Terra Nova Gardens has a clear view to the East so while I’m working in the garden the sun creeps up over the distant tree line with birds chipping their good morning, squirrels scurrying about, and the flock of wild turkeys beginning their bug patrol around the neighborhood.

    Have a great Maine sunrise day.

    We’ve had some spectacular sunrises here in Mount Vernon this past week – just beautiful!
