It's the Simple Things


It's the simple things that make me happy, like spending the day out in nature on a gorgeous sunny day like this! Today, my husband and I visited a lovely farm in Bedford Corners, New York. It's called Daisy Hill, what a pretty name for a farm! I was so excited when I saw this beautiful horse in a green field in the distance. I literally ran to the other side of the fence to photograph him before he escaped into the hills! There he is!



Back near the fence, I found a pretty display of colorful zinnias in pots.


A lovely stone wall with beautiful flower planters surrounds the yard to the farm house.


I absolutely loved the floral window boxes and yellow shutters on the farm house!
Sunlight was reflected in the window.


We also stopped at the farm stand where we bought delicious, fresh strawberries and cherries. Of course, I couldn't leave without a pretty bouquet of flowers--gorgeous peonies! Here is my basket of goodies on the counter. What a lovely farmer's market.


Back home, I put the peonies in a vase on my dining room table for us to enjoy!
It's the simple things!
Enjoy my photos and have a lovely weekend!

  19. Simple pleasures are what life is all about. Abundance is not how much we have, but in how much we enjoy.

    I resonate with your joys. Have a great Wednesday. I know I will. I'm going cycling in lovely SF Bay Area weather today.
