the weekend was filled with yard work.. i dug so many of these lily of the valley out of one of my gardens. they pretty much took over and i was trying to get sunflowers to grow there.. alas the birds got the seeds i planted a few weeks ago.. but not to late for me.. i redesigned the garden and dug out all the root system for these crazy flowers. composted and played in the dirt till i was beat... i saved some of the lilies on the other side..
planted my sunflower seeds.. also put up wire mesh to keep the birds out... little devils... i will win the battle and have sunflowers to photograph by the end of summer..
i then planted pots full of these colorful pansies.. they have the coolest mixed colors this year.. then i was done.. after getting cleaned up i grabbed a pillow and headed out to the hammock... the river was raging.. so loud you can't have a conversation if your standing in the back yard... i fell asleep to the sounds of that raging river singing to me.. a book by my side never turned a page.. hmmmm it was nice...
the everyday things in life can be so surprising... a simple foot stool scored from a junk shop... what history does it have? at this moment the beauty in the grain of the wood and the sunshine hitting the floor below bring me joy... just one of my treasures some people would consider junk... i say... what's wrong with junk?
there's beauty in nature also in grace although the mundane can hold a special place
to find this beauty look between the lines outside the box nothings defined
everyday things taking up space that which brings beauty and a smile to my face
I AM JUST FINDING MORE RANDOM THINGS IN THIS WORLD TO SMILE ABOUT EVERYDAY.. I TRY TO LIVE MY LIFE HAVING MY GLASS HALF FULL AND NEVER HALF EMPTY.. IT TAKES WORK SOME DAYS BUT IN THIS CRAZY MIXED UP WORLD THERE IS ALWAYS SOMETHING THAT WILL PUT A SMILE ON MY
FACE.. AND I LIVE FOR THOSE MOMENTS AND FORGET THE REST OF IT...WHAT I HAVE LEARNED IS THAT LIFE IS ABOUT THE JOURNEY.
