The Beauty of Simple Things

Yesterday, I snipped a handful of Golden Thryallis from the yard, tucked them in a vintage canister, and, just like that, it felt like a poetic summer afternoon in the kitchen.

When life takes more than it gives, the beauty of simple things can offer a brief respite from the long and winding road. 

Until next time, sweet friends, I hope you enjoy a peaceful weekend and savor the beauty in each day.



  1. Wild flowers are always prettier and last longer than any flowers I plant. Hmm. There's a lesson in there somewhere.

    1. I agree with you about wildflowers, although this isn't a wildflower but is a wonderful, tolerant plant that I discovered a couple of years ago at the local nursery. I bought two and they bloom through the fall. Even though we had a few below-freezing nights last year, they didn't freeze. You can find more about them here:

  2. What a perfectly lovely image and your words ring so true to me as well. I do hope you have a lovely weekend, Dayle :)

  3. That is so pretty! If you had a Pin It on your page, I'd have pinned that beautiful photo.

  4. I love Thryallis and they have such a delicate sweet scent. Your photo is lovely.

    Have a nice weekend with your DH ~ FlowerLady

  5. Those are beautiful. I love this. I've only recently begun cutting my Gerbera daisies and putting them in a bottle on my kitchen window sill. Why let them stay outside all the time when it's so hot you can't breathe?

  6. Oh! I love inspiring. May God bless your week-end with simple joy!

  7. Lovely -- simple beauty is balm for the soul.
