Sunday Smiles

I have enjoyed reading everyones happy posts this week, it is nice to look back on the week and reflect on the things that made you smile. I have realised it's like a kind of diary, it means that when you are feeling down you can look back on your happy days and feel happy all over again.



This week I have made Barbara's Little Spring Mandala and it really was fun to make.  I particularly loved rows 6a and 6b, thats the yellow and green round so simple to do but very effective, it's the first time I've tried something like that.  It's just a small mandala but I love it.

The star in my garden this week
 This beautiful Ceanothus




I was particularly happy to see this blooming this year because it was severely damaged by frost three years ago and half of it died off, these are the first flowers it has produced since then.




It's a Bank Holiday Weekend! and I'm going away for a couple of days with my daughter to see my son who is doing a phd at Cambridge, in fact we are catching the train in just two hours.  I have never visited cambridge before so I'm really looking forward to it even though rain is forecast.  I will tell you all about it and hopefully have lot's of photo's when I get back.



saw this on facebook and had to share :)

Last but by no means least.....I have reached 500 followers this week! I can't believe it I'm so happy that so many of you enjoy visiting and reading my blog, so a big welcome to all newcomers it's lovely to have you here and I hope you will leave me lots of comments so that I can get to know you and follow you too.

Have a great week!

  1. Olá amiga, passando para lhe deixar um carinho, e já estou te seguindo,beijokas

    Amigo é coisa para se guardar Debaixo de sete chaves
    Dentro do coração
    Assim falava a canção que na América ouvi
    Mas quem cantava chorou Ao ver o seu amigo partir
    Mas quem ficou, no pensamento voou
    Com seu canto que o outro lembrou
    E quem voou, no pensamento ficou Com a lembrança que o outro cantou
    Amigo é coisa para se guardar No lado esquerdo do peito
    Mesmo que o tempo e a distância digam "não"
    Mesmo esquecendo a canção
    O que importa é ouvir
    A voz que vem do coração
    Pois seja o que vier,
    venha o que vier Qualquer dia,
    amigo, eu volto
    A te encontrar
    Qualquer dia, amigo, a gente vai se encontrar.

  6. Love the mandala, haven't made mine yet, and your prolific blue blooms. Enjoy your trip and I'll look forward to your posts when you come back.

    I agree about blogging being a diary which is why I'm only back blogging again. I am very sad but I love reading my own back posts as they are a diary for me and the gaps are usually times I really don't want to recall and at these times I prefer to read others blogs instead.

  7. Your ceanothus is beautiful. I always admire these in gardens, but have never got around to planting one. There must be a reason, if I could only remember it.
