My Happy Places and Plants


By waddy


In answer to Agnet’s blog, which I found so uplifting, here are my contributions….

These two little monsters always make me happy. I just wish I colud see more of them

A gift from a GoY member, doing well.

And yet another gift. Aren’t I lucky?

A garden visitor…

It would be difficult to choose a favourite flower as I love them so many, so what follows are just a few I have enjoyed in the past..

I hope you enjoy some of my happy places/plants too

Very colorful and uplifting Julia and much better than white & grey. lol. Those two angels are lovely. So nice to see peoples' faces for a change.

Thank you, Waddy, for posting. I hope just taking time to consider what makes us happy puts us in a better place mentally even if only temporarily. We are all inclined to 'slump' at this time of year, anyway, without the added recent gloom.
I've enjoyed sharing your happy places, little people and plants. Good family, friends, wildlife we share our spaces with, and gardens: if we have those then there's lots to be thankful for.
Oh, and books!

Our younger son used to say "if you see somebody without a smile,give them one of yours!"

I've enjoyed seeing the pics of some of your "cheerer uppers"... Well done for snapping the little mouse too - usually we know they are there but don't often see them!
Anget I would have gone completely bananas without books!

You have some really lovely plants Waddy! I bet the whole of your garden looks so pretty! I have read so many books are they are all mounting up in a huge pile to go to the charity shop.
I am going to try again finding pictures!

Julia - I tried to visit the bookstores but they are all gone. Have you read any good books lately or do you have any on your wishlist?
