I was sick yesterday. Boo. But a wonderful friend brought me a get well package! How thoughtful! Amongst all the wonderful treats was a plant of beautiful light purple flowers.


SO pretty and are now planted snuggly next to my chives and other herbs. (needed some hight to that planter)

But flowers are also my worst enemy these days. I am now in the full swing of seasonal allergies. Honestly, nothing too bad to complain about. I’m mostly allergic to the beautiful flowers that are blooming and making our world more beautiful so…no room to complain.

There is something I seriously LOVE about a little kid having a messy face.


She was a good sport for a while, but then all patience for me and the camera vanished.
