A Few Things For Which I Feel Grateful

This adorable japanese bowl with pink stripes and this delicious stack of fat quarters.

...this little view from my garden swing. I love those oil lamps and the green grass and the cheerful garden banner and the mug.....and....the red tulips and sunshine

the aspen trees are starting to wake up. the blue in the sky, the whispy clouds....the scent in the air of warm temperatures...the smell of the soil as I'd pull up last seasons expired plants....

this crazy old bike in my garden. I bought four packets of Morning Glory seeds yesterday with hopes of covering this bike with lovely green climbing vines and showy blue flowers. I still have hopes of finding the perfect handlebar basket for this bike...

It sure felt good to be out in the sunshine today. The birds were chirping and bees were buzzing. Everything seemed to be happy to be alive!

Looks nice there. While your garden is in the beginning stages mine will soon be in the end. Nothing pretty survives the 100+ degrees here. Unless it is related to a cactus..lol

Oh man, I am offering up some of my morning glory seeds for free on my blog because I have a half of a baggy full. I love the bike and that you share many tings I am thankful for. I love the oil lamps, too and the fat wuarters and your cheerful striped bowl.
Have a lovely weekend.

that bike will be a perfect backdrop for the morniing glories. We have 2 kinds....early flowering that aren't super heat tolerant and a wild variety that grows all summer and then blooms in the hottest part of the year! They are just the BEST flowers for wrapping around interesting objects and turning them into art!
