Life’s Simple Pleasures

Daisy 01-framed 

I spent the afternoon planting lavender on my terrace yesterday. Soeren is at his grandparents’ for the last week of summer break and I have been busy decorating or should I say re-decorating, re-planting and simply getting things homey again.

Although the lavender in their terracotta pots look exquisite and give the terrace a Provence-like flair, I seemed to have eyes for the daisies growing in the grass. They look like little gems on green velvet. I plucked a few and decorated the dinner table with them.

Life’s simple pleasures make me happiest. Thought I’d share them with you!

  6. I saw yesterday on your site that things are a bit hectic on your side at the moment.If you can still find the beauty in the small things around you amidst all that, you are indeed a very special person...... just as I expected!!!

  9. This is a beautiful, calming photograph. And life's little pleasures are what make all the rest work and help us get by. A walk, a snuggle, a good book, the perfect cookie, flowers and the list goes on and on. These things make us pause, take a break from the hectic and make us realize the true meaning of things and what is really important.

  10. Meeta,
    You are absolutely true, life's simple pleasures are really the happiest of all, but with the growing speed of life we tend to ignore these little pleasures that come by.
