little pleasures

“After all,” Anne had said to Marilla once, “I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string.”
― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Avonlea

  1. Beautiful Julie! Thank you! Roses are not yet in bloom around here! xo Joanne

    • I looked at these bushes last week as they were just full of buds—in a week’s time–full bloom—amazing! I’m not much of a rose person but these bushes are so full and healthy—and the colors so vibrant—I just had to share them 🙂 I picked them just for you Joanne 🙂
      I hope you have a great day, a dry week, as we all recover from last week’s wicked weather!!
      Hugs–Julie

    This post is certainly a great gift; first of all the quote from Anne of Avonlea and then the beautiful roses – such an exquisite colour as well. The sun is shining here but it’s back to class for me for the next two weeks! Blessings.

    • How much longer Lynda? Are you about finished with the degree? My son started a mini-mester today which will last a month—then 3 more during the course of the “summer”–one last one in the fall then, fingers crossed, TADAH —-this for a kid who, due to life, should have finished 2 years ago. . .happy studies to you and prayers for a great two weeks!
      Julie

  3. Oh I love the quote and I’m always a sucker for roses. Thanks for brightening my evening. Hugs, N 🙂
