Amy from The World is a Book… is the host for this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge and she is challenging everyone to show all the little things that put a smile on our faces.
It doesn’t take a lot to put a smile on my face. It’s just a matter of stepping into my back garden and getting a glimpse at how my veggies are progressing would usually does it. I’m still awe at how fast these grow. It seemed like just yesterday I sowed the seeds for baby bok choy and snow peas into the cold soil but wait, has it really been 2 months since I’ve sown the seeds?
It also puts a smile on my face to know I will have early flowers this year. I started the marigolds too late last year and didn’t end up getting blooms until September. Well, this year, I started the flowers early so I can get first blooms late May.
This is my first time growing zinnias and honestly, I didn’t think the flowers would be this small even if these are dwarf varieties. Maybe they’re pre-mature blooms? Hmm… Anyway, seeing them still makes me happy.
Last but not least, seeing landscapes like this makes me smile because it’s such a calming and peaceful image and looking at it brings me back to that moment when I was standing at that spot taking the picture.
