I spent most of the Memorial Day weekend out in my yard, digging borders along the new rose bed on the sunny side of the house, and along the front, where I've got lillies that are ready to POP, some hosta that have been there for a few years, and new plantings of lillies, roses and lace-cap hydrangea (VERY small right now). I also planted several window boxes which I just love.

Early on Saturday evening, after a full day of work (and the weather was wonderful!!!) I had just taken a shower and was listening to some music on the CD player and watched from my living room window as the little girl who lives 2 doors down went waltzing through my front yard, arms stretched above her head, twirling in circles, big grin on her sweet little face. It made me smile.

Sunday, when I was back out working I turned to see her, dressed up in her pink party dress and little sparkled tiara (oh, yes, this little girl is a princess) standing on the sidewalk, looking at me and my little garden. I said, "Hi, whatcha doin'?" "I like your garden" she says. "Thank you very much!", I said, "Want to come see it?". Then she said something about her mommy calling her and off she went.

Funny how such a simple thing as a little girl telling me she liked my garden made my day. But it did.
