Some days I walk to the park in my neighborhood, hang a heart (or several hearts), do a couple of laps,
then head to the walking path where I'll do several rounds.
But today I decided to wander the neighborhood and I'm so glad I did, because I stumbled across my happy flower.
And while admiring these beauties, I made a surprise discovery.
A very large grasshopper blending in on a stem.
There was a second home that also had a patch of hollyhock outside the front gate.
Seems to be a wasp frolicking in the pollen.
Today is the International Day of Happiness.
Spending time in nature and spying little pockets of beauty makes me very happy.
Today also marks the first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere, but if you're still digging out of winter, then this is for you.
