simple pleasures

My simple pleasures.  The little things that have made me happy recently.

::   Blue skies.  Not many, but they were beautiful.
::   A day by the sea.  The first of many this year, I hope.
::   A brilliant yellow dandelion.  One of my favourite colours.
::   Echeveria.  The pink tips and how it lifts its leaves to the light.
::   Kitchenella.  From the library.  A good read.

So what's making you smile?


  1. Thank you for sharing your simple pleasures - your photography is fab x

  5. Pretty pleasures! I like the way you look at things...
    Love, Mirjam.

  6. What beautiful photos, I love the echeveria, it's so pretty. Something about the spring light makes us notice things anew I think. Hope you're having a good week. CJ xx

  10. Brilliant photos of the dandelion and echivera!! xx

  11. We've had brilliant blue skies through most of this winter, which has been a blessing when the temperatures have been so low. Nothing like that clear blue is there? Lovely simple pleasures in your area Bee ... enjoy the rest of your week! Wendy x

  12. love the look of that succulent! i might even try to buy one for the room, if they sell it here, it looks so pretty...

  13. Excellent simple pleasures and that is a great photo of the succulent. I have Kitchenella and like it very much although, to be honest, I read it more than I cook from it, but that's ok I think! x

  14. I'll keep an eye out for that book - won't be difficult to spot, what with that lovely bright cover!
    I like the photo of the Echeveria. Such a pretty colour combination... I also saw lots of dandelions mixed in with cowslips on the roadside verges yesterday and they made my heart leap a little bit at the prospect of warmer, brighter days yet to come.
