From my garden or my fields
She has a great sense of humour and appreciated the fun.
But later I thought, why not cut a bouquet for myself and bring my garden inside?
And so yesterday evening, walking the paths and realizing that I would lose several daisies in the pasture when I mow them today, I decided to start picking. Then I added to the small bouquet with flowers that are from my garden while they last.
So in the bouquet are fuscia coloured Dame's Rocket which is a spring phlox, daisies, buttercups, birds foot trefoil, red clover, Siberian iris, yellow iris, purple and mauve iris, tiny purple iris and lady's mantle. I didn't add columbine or oriental poppies or sweet William all of which are either too far gone or I have only one of them... but the joy of looking at this little bouquet greeting me on the dining table this morning reminded me that I have always loved flowers in the house and I must continue to bring some in, specially since I seem to have an abundance outside.
Sometimes it's the little things that are in our lives every day, that we forget to be grateful for. This was a lovely and gentle reminder of how very rich and full my life is. I have little if anything really, to complain about and much to be grateful for - I am truly blessed.
I hope the little things in your life bring you joy today.
