Little Things

There is nothing, Sir, too little for so little a creature as man. It is by studying little things that we attain the great art of having as little misery and as much happiness as possible. (Samuel Johnson)

Moss roses blooming so prettily.

One tiny butterfly fluttering about.

And my latest crochet project -- teeny little baskets, perfect for holding a few chocolates.

Welcome October!

Happy weekend wishes!

We are chlly & more rain is about to descend on us again. Some people in the valleys have been flooded 3 & 4 times in as many weeks!! How do they stand it?? I wish it would dry out for awhile so we may enjoy the beautiful Autumn of the Northeast!
Happy October 1st to you!!

I love those teeny little baskets how lovely.
Best of all I like your picture of the butterfly resting on the flower that is a great shot.
Here in the UK we are having a little heat wave, first as I know of in October.

Yes, the little things are so very important and as the Robert Brault quote states, "Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize those were the big things."
Love your little baskets.
