Things that Make me Happy Part Seven

7. Random Pretty Things

"The man is richest whose pleasures are cheapest"

Henry David Thoreau

I'm one of those lucky people who can be content with very little. Just a glimpse of something pretty and I can be overwhelmed with a feeling of contented happiness; blossom on the trees in Spring time, freshly laundered sheets on the bed, washing on the line blowing gently in the breeze, a bowl of ripe cherries newly picked from the garden............. I love these moments of pure joy that can come so suddenly and unexpectedly. Yesterday I sat looking at this bowl of cherries for such a long time and it made my heart sing!

The simple pleasure of life are so important, I could not agree with you more. Your cherry photos are so artistic and beautiful,mine when I publish them will be dull in comparison. Did you eat them all after you finished gazing?

I know what you mean. My friend and I can spend two hours in a cheese shop oo-hing and ahh-ing of beautiful cheese. That second photos of the cherries is brilliant., THe red is so intense.

Cherries are everywhere right now and I'm so excited! I can't go to the market or to a friend's house without a big bowl of cherries greeting me. It's wonderful!
