"Little bits of happiness"


We're coming to the end of Autumn.  I went out into my garden today, thinking that it would be hard to find much that I could take photos of.  It was cold, overcast and bleak. As I started searching, I kept finding
"little spots of happiness".

Hot Lips - Salvia had strong colour in the cold

A pink Nerrine was peeping through the leaves of the spent
Japanese Windflowers

These guys! or rather girls, I keep finding out of their palace EVERY morning.  Look what they have done to my once nice neat pile of horse poo. 
Probably taken all the worms too.
 

Thinking the beauty was limited outside, I went into my shed . . . I found these poppy seed heads that I couldn't bare to part with in the summer time.
I'd made arrangements in pots from my clever sister.
 

This sign was made many years ago, to make no mistake as to whose shed this belonged to - I have changed sheds since then, but it still fits.  We have his and her's sheds in our family.

Oh . . . and then I came inside, and did a bit of blog looking, and read about the "little spots of happiness."  I totally related to it, and thought yes, I had just found those little spots of happiness in my world.

Those little spots of happiness are what make yard work worthwhile. There is just always something out there to make you smile. I love seeing your pretty flowers!@
