simple things that make me feel good

As i was rushing around this morning doing dishes and tidying the kitchen, I came across a loving picture, which i turned into a photograph.  What do you think? 

I love my little blue teapot which has seen many and varied teas in it's pot.  I knew I had found the right man for me when he enjoyed sharing a pot of tea as much as i do.  The cameilia flower is from our garden, and the Donna Hay recipe book is a fairly recent purchase.  So far, the only recipe we've tried is honeycomb, which was pretty nice, but since i am suddenly conscious of my sugar intake and the need to reduce it, i won't be making honeycomb again any time soon!

Here's a few other garden pics which put me in awe of mother nature.  Such beauty.

Ornamental Kale

This salvia flower feels like velvet.  Buddha chilling.

Pansy!  Look at the depth of colour on it's dear little face.
I hope you've had a lovey day.
