"It's the simple things in life that are the most extraordinary."
Thankful for my little balcony garden where doves find respite. I enjoy watching through the window as they eat from the plants and drink from the bowl of water I've placed in one of the pots.
It's also Jingles favorite spot for relaxing and exploring.
I'm always delighted to find volunteer plants growing, even if some people consider them weeds. The one on the right is called common purslane and grows wild here. It is used in salads or as a side green and provides 6 times more Vitamin E than spinach and 7 times more beta carotene than carrots. It is also high in Vitamin C and other vitamins as well as an essential omega-3 fatty acid called alphalinolenic acid. Not bad for a little wild weed.
Anything that's green is allowed to grow in my garden and is especially appreciated when it has pretty little flowers.
I've gathered together some of my cotton yarn with plans to crochet some colorful potholders today.
And I'm reading The Alchemist right along with my husband. I started it years ago but never finished it even though I enjoyed it immensely. Ironically, someone recommended it to my husband yesterday and insisted it was a must read so he came home with a different release of it. He's already 15 pages in and loves it.
So that's my five.
Enjoying, relaxing, delighting, crocheting, reading.
Have a fabulous day!
