sunny simple flowers

I spent a quiet day yesterday straightening up a bit around Lemon Lane Cottage.  Rearranging odds and ends.  Freshening up the mantel with some sunny simple flowers from the garden.



Life is full right now and I am basking in the ordinariness of it...


Not knowing what tomorrow holds but not fretting about it either...




Sometimes you just have trust in the freshness of flowers today and not worry about when their beauty will fade.  Finding comfort in the seeds of hope they leave behind to bloom again next season.

Enjoy your Sunday.

I am joining my good friend Elaine for Sunny Simple Sundays.
