Midweek Pretties and Smiles

Today I just want to take a minute to show a few things that make me smile and bring joy into life every day!  Yes, they are simple things - but they make me smile none the less.  I hope you smile and enjoy for a few minutes!

Forsythia  - blooming so pretty this year.  Bright and cheery!
ONE of my many little friends.  He just took a nut from me and is enjoying it!

Peonies coming up.  It wont be long until the wonderful scent is in the air!
Pretty tulips - look at all the unopen blooms as well!  These have been here for over 34 years.

Wild violets - make me smile.  I remember picking bunches for my Momma as a tyke.
Momma and Fluffy (being elusive) after having a snack (in greenhouse)
More tulips and lilies galore
Sun shining  in one corner of the bedroom - this corner always cheers me.
My handsome Coogy - just chillin' out.  What a rough life!

The land is coming back to life around here.  I love seeing all the green and the colors.  All my babies give me joy each and every day.  Despite all the news today - there are still things to smile about.
Have a wonderful day my friends.
SMILE

  1. The flowers are beautiful, Cheryl. We have wild violets here too, which are so beautiful. And our grape hyacinths come up every year. I planted them in 1986 and they never disappoint me.

  2. I want to rub that cat belly. We all need to be thankful for all that we have. Smiling is important. I have been in the yard as much as possible. It always makes me smile.

      Glad you enjoyed!

  4. Thanks for the pics they are lovely. I always have a cat or two on my bed. I have been enjoying the spring blossoms more this year than ever. They are a reminder that God is in his heaven, the Savior lives, life goes on in spite of our problems.

  5. Thank you for sharing. I love everything. Especially your furbabies, including squirrel friend. So cute! I am listening to the birds talking right now. They sound so pretty. You know what makes it even prettier? There are no cars going down the street. I can just enjoy listening to the birds. It's sweet and peaceful. Hopefully Google doesn't try to change my spelling and give me a weird mistake, lol.

    1. I sat on the front porch yesterday and closed my eyes and listened to the chorus of birds. It was delightful. I could smell all the fresh mowed grass and hear the birds. So peaceful.

  7. Your peony looks like mine. Once they pop up, they grow like crazy. I have lots of tulips. My daffodils were really scarce. I can usually pick a dozen every couple of days but not this year. I may need to divide them in fall.

    Our Juncos have moved on and we have a yardful of territorial robins. I see them squawking and chasing each other and I holler out the back door, HEY, THIS IS A PEACEABLE KINGDOM! QUIT IT!!!
    And my husband laughs at me and says I should make them a sign so they don't forget lol.

    1. Oh my goodness that is funny. I am sure neighbors would get a kick out of a sign as well!! I don't have that many robins - so no problem here. They are busy making nests though.
      My bright yellow finches have shown back up - such little rays of sunshine.
      My daffodils were pretty but they are done now.
      ENJOY those territorial little birds!!
