Five Simple Pleasures

1. A reclining chair. In all my years of gardening, I've never had a truly comfortable outdoor chair to curl up in when the work is done. Now I can sit on soft cushions and read or watch the birds, or knit. I can recline and listen to audiobooks on the iPod or, on crisp evenings, lay under a comforter and gaze up at the stars.

2. A hummingbird on a shepherd's hook in the garden.

3. A planter still beautiful in August.

4. Coming upon a fallen nest, a small work of art, in the garden.

5. The promise held in a beautiful blue skein of Handmaiden Silk Lace yarn.
