Human felicity is produced not so much by great pieces of good fortune that seldom happen, as by little advantages that occur every day.
I very much believe this. Little things will happen each day. Every day we have choices to make. Sometimes nothing much seems to happen, but if we look back over 5 or 10 years there may have been great changes in our lives. When I look back there have been great changes in my life over time, but not great changes from day to day (except for 1 or 2 and I think these dramatic changes would be too much to handle too often.)

It was a sunny weekend. P:-) and I didn't have much planned so P:-) helped me tidy up down the side of my house, or rather I helped P:-). (I don't think this had been done for about 7 years! Because of the nature of my marriage split up I had found it difficult to face the garden. Now I just have trouble finding time.)
This is how it looked down the side of my house on Saturday morning.
This is how it looked by the end of the afternoon.
Sometimes I am just a little lost at how to proceed, but P:-) knows just what to do. We do disagree a little on what is 'weeds' and what is decorative. A lot of the pots are left over from when my daughter J was in her gardening phase 20 years ago. A lot of repotting needs to be done, but everything certainly looks a lot neater.
I made some little finds as we were gardening. I love moss and there were lots of little patches of green moss.
I came across a flowering bromeliad hidden away in an overgrown geranium.

I have a couple more growing.
Wait! I forgot. I found one native iris which I put in a vase inside.
