Happiness Is...

Sometimes, it's the smallest things that make me happy.
Like a wee lady bug on the new raspberry canes.

The 'free pick' daffodil field in Bradner.

Yes, it's true. You can pick for free.

Only in the country would you find such a place.

Farm fresh eggs - so random in size.

And the new friend who now lives in our backyard.
I love these things.
What small thing makes you smile?

tadpoles in the stream and all the plants coming up for the spring/summer!

nature is so special

Things are turning green here in Michigan, and I spent all afternoon outside rolling the lawn. I enjoyed the sunshine, the crisp, fresh air, and the dogs frolicking on the green, green grass. I have to say that after that long, long, long winter, I even enjoyed picking up all the sticks that had blown out of our trees, and seeing new buds on the trees above them ready to burst!

Loved this post, beautiful ... especially the fields of daffodils!

Green, glorious green, especially now stuck in AZ. I miss my garden sooo much. Other little things. Fresh pasta with parmiagno reggiano, ice cold watermelon & when my cat Gunther curls up on the bed & places his paw on my hand: its his nighttime routine.
I'm wildly jealous of the daffodils. Yes, I'll confess I;d be a huge daffodil hoarder.
Have a wonderful weekend Heather.

Those daffodils look wonderful in that field.

I wondered if you knew where I can purchase nice jars for jam. I am making jam for favours for my sons wedding and all I can find are those miserable looking canning jars in the grocery store.

Hope Mabel is doing OK.

Oh, I want to be in that daffodil free pick area!! Those are one of my favorite flowers. Living in a farm sounds grand to me.

Bliss to me is sitting underneath my long porch and listening to the birds while I tend to watering and planting my herbs. :)

Lily is beautiful, and deserves all the free daffodils.

Spring is here and so beautifully shining in this post!!
Daffodils are so bright and happy and all these things make me smile too :)
Waking up to sunshine and birds chirping,
and the sound of doggie paws coming to greet us :)
