Simple pleasures

They say the best things in life are free.  I believe that.  As I look out over my summer garden and see all the beautiful color, nature is smiling back at me.  

The black-eyed-susans are in full bloom now and spreading themselves everywhere.  

I picked a handful this morning and brought them inside to enjoy.  

It's the little things in our lives that can make a big difference.  Simple little pleasures.  

So go ahead, pick some flowers today and bring them inside to enjoy.  You'll be glad you did.  

Have a good week!

I need to plant some of these at my next house. They are wonderful flowers.

A great idea, Donna. I think I'll copy it tomorrow.

The Black Eyed Susans are so cheery. I remember seeing acres of them alongside the highway in Manitoba. Like Penny, I think I need to plant some.

My very favorite bouquets are little bits from the garden! Love black eyed Susans so much! Also love the nature crafts you made. But mostly, I love your beautiful garden! Mimi
