Springing into new beginnings!


These little guys make me happy!
It's official I have a little garden planted and I am keeping my fingers crossed that the snails don't take it over.   This is the first year in a very long time that I have a space to plant some color !  My husband took out a bricked area and made a new path to my studio , which gave me room to dig in the soil.  I am thrilled because it was perfect  for planting.  I want an abundance of color to inspire me in painting and make me SMILE.  So far I am smiling!
 Being a grandmother of two adorable little ones  I want to keep the garden tradition going.  My grandma always had a beautiful garden with rows of Iris, tomatoes , fruit trees, etc.    I am hoping by mid summer there will be cut flowers for me to bring indoors.    I have been checking it daily to see if  anything sprouting up and the last couple of days has proven to be productive.   I am so excited !
Until next time,

Happiness

The sum of happiness is made up of a thousand details. A little kindness done one less fortunate gives the heart a beat of pleasure that no millinery or laces or jewels can possibly inspire.
To overcome prejudice is more satisfying than a ten-course dinner.
To subdue a difficulty and smother a selfish disire is to become strong and splendid.
If life is worth living at all, it is worth living in a state of progress and improvement.
If we moan and groan, filling the air with dissatisfaction and gloom, we can scarcely hope to partake of much contentment.
All you need is a good thump on the back by some cheerful soul who has faith in you, and promise to yourself that you will face your work and your worries cheerfully,-(Selected)
