Things That Make Me Happy!

Cloud watching
flowers and ladybugs
Plumeria cuttings from a friend (thanks Sonia), that bloom
into a beautiful plant
Lisianthus and Rudbeckia
While I was out watering today, I had a Yellow Swallowtail butterfly checking out my yard. She spent a couple of minutes, just fluttering around, visiting! I didn't have my camera to get a photo. When I was done watering and turned around to shut the water off I saw this.
I love it when balloons just seem to show up for no reason. I never saw it coming, just turned around and it was there. Balloons make me happy!
The balloon was actually in a planter. I tied it on the wagon so I could get my camera.
Then I remembered I had a shepherd's hook with a butterfly, so I tied it to that too.

Warm summer days = happiness
..and so does our little pool that I can cool my toes in...
..or my whole body if I choose.
When the nights seem to stay almost as warm as the days,
This little baby makes me very happy!
This room, where I spend most of my time, holds all of my favorite things...
especially the ladybugs, and love notes!

What makes you happy?
