Unexpected Joys




I spotted this dandelion flower this afternoon in a hidden spot in our yard - isn't it so sunny! The closer I look the more marvellous it is.




 I had just finished planting out some seedlings today, tidied up and come inside. I glanced outside and saw this kookaburra using our pool as a bird bath! He didn't stay long enough for me to come closer before flying off out of sight. I love little surprises, especially at home when it seems the garden is bland and wintery. I hope you are finding unexpected joys at your home today too.

Lots more beautiful flower photos over at Flowers on Saturday.

Thank you everyone. I find taking photos and looking at them larger than life really helps me appreciate their intricate beauty so much more. God is an amazing creator.
