It’s the Tiniest Things …

Just walking around our block, which is at least a three times a day experience brings simple joys.

Today’s was stopping to take in the divine scent of honeysuckle that’s in full bloom and flowing over a neighbour’s wall.

I often wonder if people who plant such fragrant beauties realise the joy they share with the community.

And, I also have my eye on two HUGE sunflowers that are getting ready to put on a show.

  1. We too have a neighbor who has a beautiful “Rose of Sharon” bush which is the prettiest color of rose into lavender ..I have the pleasure of seeing it first thing in the morning when I start to make the coffee . The counter and sink have a window that faces their side yard and she has other flowers/bushes to admire too..This year we had to say good bye to our Rhododendroms sp. as they had become to big and invasive . We will put in a 4′ privacy trellis with a beautiful Hydrangea (blue/violet flowers) and enjoy that as we did the other for the last 50 years…We still have the Bridal Wreath bush which adds to the yards beauty…A nice place for sitting or just walking outside … Especially in today’s world…

  2. Hi Jean – so nice to read your blog posts. They are always inspiring. I especially loved this one about “the tiniest things.” These days, with all the bad and sad news about us, it is good to try and appreciate the good things that are all around us.

    I hope you and family are well.
