My friend Lori is hostessing this May Flowers Challenge. The idea was to present a flower a day for the whole month, but it could be any kind of a flower…a drawing, painting, sculpture, live flower….whatever. I decided to showcase my garden by presenting a flower a day right from my garden, and it’s been a blast!
Today I’d like you to see my Watermelon Diascia. It is a tiny, but profuse orange flower…very dainty! Just love it!
They look so precious in the old metal bucket!
Do you ever have one of those days that just clicks? Nothing particularly huge happened or was accomplished, but it was just a practically flawless day. In fact, if I had to come up with one word to describe it, it would be that DREADED word “Balanced.” Just a few days after deciding there was no such thing, I actually had one! Go figure!
I got my girls off to school, worked on my internship project, and my Artist Trading Cards. I made a fabulous pasta salad (well two, actually, one for us and one for my daughter’s family) perfect for a warm spring dinner and did a little shopping for the up-coming trip (the weather is slated to be a bit chillier than we had anticipated…do you have any idea how hard it is to find wool glove liners in May???) I pulled a few weeds, did some watering, checked out the bird’s nest, ran a load of clothes, visited with my girlies on-line and laughed and laughed and laughed… Wrapped up with a quiet evening, and reflected on the near perfectness of a simple day.
I could do this again. And again. Soon.
