"Makes Me Happy Monday" number 35.


Happy Monday to you. This week I am happy that the Geraldton Wax is blooming. That is the pink bloom in the vase with Sophy's rose. Sophy's rose is a David Austin rose with dark cerise pink rosette shaped blooms. This has a light tea fragrance. The Geraldton Wax (Chamaelacucium) is a attractive West Australian small tree or shrub. It has needle like leaves and has waxy pink or purple flowers.

I am very happy that the jonquils have finally decided to bloom. I bought a pot of these at a garage sale a few years back. I subdivided them when I bought the pot and now I have several metres of jonquils.

I am very happy with the Rosemary. It is covered in bees which are good for the garden. Rosemary is great to put on some meat dishes to flavour it.

I am very happy with the blooms on my stocks.

Several other things have" Made Me Happy" during the week including"

The smell of fresh laundry when it comes in from the line.

The lady at the craft shop,I needed some needles for my over locker. I broke my last needle during the week. On Friday I went with my manual to make sure I was getting the right ones,she quickly rang up and ordered them and they will be here in a day or so. Happy with that kind of service.

Lucy and Ian were happy on Saturday. They went to watch there favourite team Swan Districts win a great game of footy.

I am happy that I was able to spend Saturday afternoon doing some cross stitch while Ian and Lucy were at the footy.

I am happy that I was able to get another one of those plastic quilting frames that click together.

I am happy that the weather is warming up, I can go for two walks during the day. It was just to cold for me in the mornings lately.

Please let me know what is making you happy.

Happy Monday

That was a lovely surf through your beautiful gardens. All that color makes me smile for sure! It reached 100 degrees here at home today. It's crazy, and I'm wanting a fluffy snowfall so very badly.
