Some of the things on this weeks Joy List come from my very own back yard !
There were some lovely messages from some of the plants back there as well as such joy in spending time with that incredible green growing !!!
The elephant ear hosta, sent me some messages as I watched it basking in the morning sun!
Look at the size of these incredible leaves !
Talk about Living Big in the present moment!
A month ago, it was a small tuber in the ground and now it is bursting with life and power.
What would my life look like if I took on the hosta challenge ?
Then there was another message of the glorious lupine leaves.
Their leaves are as beautiful as a flower !
The message I received from them is to
yourself just as you are in this moment.
Don’t wait for the big bloom to shower yourself with appreciation.
You are remarkable just as you are today.
Mmmm, that feels good.
Cutting a sweet blossom from the Chica Bush also brought me some joy this morning.
We have this very pretty bush at the end of the driveway and we have no idea what it is really called. It blooms with these sweet white/pink trumpets every spring and on into the summer.
Way back when, before we fenced in our back yard, Chica used to be tied near that bush to do her business.
And whenever she could, she would chew on its branches as if it were the sweetest candy !
Hence the name “Chica Bush”.
Luckily, Chica now has full rights to the whole back yard and the bush has now become full and healthy again.
I brought some joy into the studio and put it in a sweet vase that reminds me of my friend, Bethie.
Hmmm, look-y here !
I guess this is the message for today from the back yard of the Yellow House on Orange Street.
Not a bad one at all !
Happy Thursday, Beautiful Ones !
For more joy, head on over to Meri’s Musings and see what all of the joy seekers have found !
