what makes you smile
































Well, what makes me smile is my spring garden...seriously, I do love a white bloom, and I walked out to my garden this afternoon and was overcome with the gorgeous smell of orange blossoms...I seriously wish you could smell it. It's amazing how a smell can have such a positive effect on you. Sometimes life gets overwhelming, and for me that simple sweet smell brought so much happiness, and yes, I did smile,,,a whole lot. I just pottered about clicking with my phone. My land isn't huge, and the garden is not perfect, but I LOVE it, one of my favourite things about my home. I thought I would hang my sewn together squares on the tree to show where I am up to...still to go to the shops and buy a border that matches, and wadding, and backing.lol...I think it will make a perfect throw to lie on or have a picnic on...
ok...well that's it from me...I have a busy day tomorrow and hope you have a good one too...hope you get to smile like I did!
until next time
lots of it
