Thankful Thursday

I have been meaning to do one of these posts for ages...several blogs I have followed over the years have had a 'Thankful Thursday' and it is always good to remember to be thankful for things - sometimes we get bogged down with the everyday and forget.

I am thankful for a blue sky today - I was able to get my washing dry!

I am thankful for the wonders of nature 

Our gorgeous Maple Tree is starting to unfurl its leaves.

I am thankful for:

Colour in the garden

Cherry blossoms on the tree

Wild geraniums

Even dandelions can bring a smile to the face if you think of their lovely sun shine colour.  The guinea pigs like them as well!

Leaves on the rose bushes.

Bluebells in MY garden

Pear blossom

Flowers starting to bud in the wheelbarrow planter

Our camellia is full of lovely red blooms

Even a feather can bring a smile to the face.

I am thankful that I have had a headache free day today - it is amazing how much more I can achieve when I am feeling a little better than usual.

I have cleared and tided my sewing table, some fabrics, patterns and even did some sewing today!  Hopefully my mojo is returning.


  1. Such simple (on the face of it) things and I think that we often overlook those simple things. I'm glad that your day was headache free. That is certainly not a simple matter and would have been reason alone to be thankful.

    1. Indeed it is a reason alone to be thankful :-)

  2. I'm thankful too for blue skies although rain is forecast for tomorrow. I hope it doesn't hang around long. Today I sowed my Zinnias and Snapdragons. Now I'm hoping for sunshine.
    Good news that you had a headache free day. Hope you have a lot more !!

    1. I hope you got your sunshine. I am sure your Zinnias and Snapdragons will look beautiful come summer.
