Remember that half the joy of achievement is in the anticipation.

It's the small things...

With the water restrictions that we have imposed upon us, it wasn't really an option to go with a big garden this year...although that was what I had wanted to do. So instead I opted to try some container gardening. These are on my patio. They were so small when I planted them. Don't they look happy? While it's not much, it's enough to make me smile and I truly enjoy looking at them. Seeing them thrive makes me feel a sense of satisfaction and even accomplishment. I may not have a brown thumb after all-

Your flowers are beautiful! That vintage tablecloth you have I have but in a pillow (red flowers). I found you from over at Kim's. Will be back to visit.
