Beauty in the Ordinary

This is not about being brilliant, or extraordinary, it's not about wanting to be famous, or making headlines, or trying to impress...this about sharing a 'gift' each day with the lift the spirit of people when they read this blog, to show them the beauty in the ordinary.
"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." Raold Dahl

And here in the garden of Little House...

Pansies in little pots are lifting
their faces to the sun...

Comfrey plants have pushed themselves up
from their long winter sleep

New thresholds present themselves and show us
through their grace that new beginnings are possible.


  1. Nice to see those happy plants! We have a lot longer to go before green starts popping up. I planted tulips for the first time, though and CAN'T wait to see those green shoots come up in a few months. :)

    (Love your header picture by the way!)

  2. It won't be too long a wait Charlotte...just remember they are there beneath the earth longing to show their beauty to you, just as much as you are longing to see it.

  3. I am so jealous of Vancouverites at this time of year....oh to see a pansies smiling face!

  4. Remind me what you do with the comfrey Sis...

  5. Comfrey leaves make a wonderful poultice to accelerate healing from cuts and sprains, really good to heal bones.
    Looking at my photo again, I think I posted the wrong one...they look like the tiger lilies that grow amongst the comfrey! Oops!


Go on...make my day...
