Washing Line, Curly Roots and Thomas Hardy

02 Jun

1   Seeing the children’s clothes on the line this beautiful sunny morning gave me such a lovely feeling! (I know the wall isn’t beautiful right now but it will be when we’ve finished!)

2  Tipping out an old flower pot this morning, we discovered this beautiful pattern of roots.

Curly roots

3   It rained this afternoon (more petrichor!) so we stayed in and played. Tabitha spent the afternoon unloading one section of the bookcase and piling them up beside me on the carpet and then putting them back. She obviously takes after her Mum and me in her appreciation of Thomas Hardy!

    Since I started following your blog my eyes have been open to all the beautiful things in my life. Yesterday I was hanging out clothes and it was a very breezy day so they were just waving so perfectly and I thought to myself “One of my beautiful things”!! Too bad I had to run and did not have time to snap a picture, but I am sure there will be plenty more opportunities. ~Patty

    I loved the baby washing. I don’t know, it was so sweet – & I could relate 🙂

    I mentioned you in my latest video, DAY 5, on

    Reason? Because you DO inspire me 🙂

      Thank you very much for your lovely comments.

      YOU will be one of my beautiful things today! You make me feel so humble that I have inspired you and that you, too, are beginning to find 3 beautiful things each day.

      Keep up this amazing work! Your Daniel must be very proud of you.

      By the way, you do have very beautiful teeth!

      Hope you find beautiful things – and that you are happier with earwigs and wood-lice than you are with snails 🙂
