Simple pleasures

I found these little blue vincas blooming in my untended garden when I came home from work today.They were a welcome surprise. It was warm today-close to 70 .F-and it made you feel alive again after the cold winter and the cold spring we have been having.The blue is a delicate periwinkle and then I found the yellow: These are really old fashioned daffodils.They have been blooming in this yard for I'll bet over 60 years-they are indestructible-I have dug up hundreds of these bulbs over the years,they have been transplanted in many other gardens and are blooming heartily there also,I wonder how many years they can go on?It starts to make you think about the power of sharing.And of kindness;towards those you know and those you do not know so well.Like blogging...You don't really know if people are reading or not,what they think of you or not..I want to share something I found on Flickr I found this wonderful recipe for Blackberry scones here,I made these with the most wonderful plump blackberries If you make them-have some tea and do a little knitting.Think of your friends and the friends you may make someday..enjoy the little things in life...

my mom has some peonies like that-- she's had them in her life for at least 40 years and every once in a while she digs some up and gives them away. Pretty cool.
