SIMPLE PLEASURES

I need to set limits for myself when it comes to buying seeds and plants for my garden. I have all ready reached my "max" and will not let myself spend anymore.

At the end of last season I bought some daisies that were marked way down. I was disappointed not to see them come back up this year. I did start some "Crazy Daisies", by seed this winter (indoors, growing on my living room window sill). However they are growing very slowly and I don't think that I will see blooms this Summer. I have thought several times how nice it would be to have daisies in my garden and believe it or not, my husband has also brought that up and we have talked about where we would put them in the garden.


This afternoon I went out to mow the lawn...the grass wasn't too bad, but we have some weeds in the front lawn that were up quite high. About a quarter of the way of my lawn mowing I came across a large patch of daisies! They had been there all along but had never had the chance to grow tall enough for us to notice. A few daisies were actually blooming! I have successfully transplanted all the daisies into our flower garden and I think that they will be lovely.

Thanks for the Daisies Lord!

I love the way the Lord gives us the desires of our heart. It's always nice to receive flowers! I hope that Shaun wasn't jealous!! :)
