The simple things...

I found this lovely floral 'display' decorating the table the other day and was reminded that the simplest things can bring pleasure.


My girls had picked these from our front lawn.

Thos among you who could be classified as having a green thumb will know they are not any type of exotic bloom, but rather a weed.

But if you look at them through a child's eyes they are bright and pretty.

Hope you find something simple in your day that delights you.

Beautiful!
I remember picking these as a child.
I always thought they were bright and pretty.
Hope you have a lovely day.

So sweet and I think I spy a daffodil in amongst them too

That is so sweet. Ella picked me a load of clover and their respective flowers when she was at my mums a couple of weeks ago and as she gave them to me she said "I love you mum" melts my heart every time.

Weeds CAN be bright and pretty, can't they? (Plus one non-weedy daffodil). I love that they chose glasses of different shapes and sizes to change it up. They obviously have a good eye! ;)

We all should look at things through children's eye sometimes...

A weed is just a flower that hasn't found a home yet..
So pretty and so much love with them.

Awwww, that's beautiful. I love what Lizzie said. I am going to steal that phrase and apply it to all the lovely flowering weeds that surround my house.

Gorgeous... they're beautifying your table and weeding the front lawn for you... now that is a generous and loving act.
How delightful. Yellow always makes me smile. You're a very fortunate woman to have three children that love you so much.

It looks like Oxalis. My kids have not started picking flowers much yet :(
