Simple Things........

Sometimes simple things are the most cherished....The laughter of my family when they're all together....My grandmothers cast iron skillet's, and the memory of her perfume...The smell of the gulf and the summer nights on the beach...Friends you can laugh and be yourself with...

Our 170 year old white oak, it's one of the reasons we bought our property, and it's just as beautiful without leaves as it is with them...it's one of those great tree's that you wish could talk, and I hope nature is always kind to her....




Or the beauty of a rusty ole bird bath, the birds don't care what it looks like as long as there is fresh water for them to splash around in...



Or the way Carolina Jasmine starts to take over an old worn arbor, it somehow brings it back to life...


And the beauty of watching our garden grow...even if I know that a lot of canning and freezing lies in store for me...

It's always good when we remember to appreciate the little things. They really are important.
