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 world...to 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

The Little Garden


While the weather for the last week has been glorious,
a few black clouds are rolling in today, and there is a cool breeze coming off of the lake.


Gardening has begun, with pots of herbs nicely planted out
and moveable should they get not enough/too much sun.


Coriander, chives, leaf basil, creeping thyme, hot and spicy oregano.
I'll pick up a mature pot of rosemary at the garden centre,
(it's just is too slow growing here).

The hostas are almost up, and the hydrangea and sixteen candles are greening up nicely






In a couple of weeks the black-eyed susans will show their sunny heads


and the next dry day it will be white new guinea impatiens for the baskets on the fence.


Before you know it, the little garden will be all set for the summer!

  1. Even with the changeable weather, it's such a lovely time of the year. You can almost see everything unfurling right in front of your eyes. My hostas are out too and delphiniums are just coming into bud.

  6. Love gardening. It feeds my soul and lifts my spirits. I want to grow everything, so really have to control myself when I visit garden centers/plant nurseries. Your plants are lovely.
