Daffodils

Something fun today. All the daffodils finally blooming in Michigan give me such joy! This is a poem I wrote many years ago for my second grade class art project. I love daffodils!

 

 

Also I was able to make my first “yard gathering” of the season. Yay! If you have read by blog for long, or are on my Instagram feed, you will know that I absolutely love and need flowers for my soul to be happy. And soon I will have a yard full. These brave little yellow blooms are quite precious to me, since it’ll be a while before I have any other kind to pick.

I hope you enjoy this sunny post today! And I wish you health and blessings.

Much love, Mimi

Summer Delights

Happy July! This summer is going so quickly that I make certain to enjoy the little things that fill it up. 

I posted these on my Instagram, so this may be a repeat to some of you. 

These beautiful, dark red cherries in the little pink vintage bowl on this old wooden stool……

These “yard gatherings” bouquets….
Every day I go out to gather new blossoms from my beautiful yard. I am so blessed!

and a heart message from my sister who’s in heaven, appearing on a fresh nectarine….

By taking the time to enjoy the small, special gifts of summer, I am able to slow it down a little bit. 

I hope yours is full of delights also!

Love and hugs,
