Finding Beauty Friday...little wonders and surprises

I'm linking this post to "Friday Finding Beauty" event on Claudia's blog Dipity Road. Today all the participating blogs can post whatever they like on their blog that touched them in some way and made them feel, see, or appreciate a moment of beauty in their lives.
I believe beauty is anything that makes you smile or warms your heart.
 Evening sun on the new peaches on my tree
 Beautiful sunset love how the light plays across the yard
 Evening light on my pear tree
 sunset from my back yard looking down the driveway
 My new crop of blueberries..hummm can't wait
 new pears forming with blooms still attached...
 When the sun rises the squirrels come out to play...
 the early morning sun playing off of the side flower beds..
 sunrise on my La. iris
 God's wonders are old Maids bathed in the glow of the morning sun
 While walking around the yard I found a new nest..
 See it up high in the Oak front yard bathed in morning light...
 I discovered a new bloom on an old Rose that hasn't bloomed in years was ready to cut it wonderful..
 my Magnolia Forstata bush is in full bloom...
 the sweet blooms smell like bananas


  1. You have THE most beautiful yard - I love the space and the light.
    All of your plants and trees look like mine do at the end of July! I'm serious - I cannot believe you have peaches growing already!

    It is still Thursday here and I am commenting on your Friday post - Cool!

    Have a Super day!

  2. Very nice tour of your yard! We are finally starting to green up in our woods - tiny little leaves are starting to burst out at last!

  3. I enjoyed my stroll thru your yard for sure. You have a fruit salad growing out there! hehe! I know you will be enjoying all your produce for sure.

    Happy weekend to you!

  4. 'just took my camera in hand and walked around my yard, for there is were my simple beauty lies'

    A M E N !

    Love there beauty of your yard too Molly!


  5. Molly,

    I love the strolls about your yard, with the changes and all the work you're doing. The one red bud on the forgotten rose---what a lovely symbol of hope and perseverance! That's a wonderful lesson that things unseen, things given up on---THEY know they're there, and we're so grateful and surprised when we see them peeking out.

    Thank you for so graciously sharing "where your simple beauty lies."


  6. We have a lot of the same things budding/blooming/growing right now.

    Have a great weekend.

  7. Well Ms. Molly, I can tell we were thinking alike today! :) You most definitely have taken the time to enjoy God's simple but beautiful creations and to be thankful for them! Your flowers and all your pics are beautiful! Enjoy all that beauty around you!


  8. It's so true Molly. All we have to do is open our eyes to see what God has put before us. There are great riches to be found in just being able to see the paint brush of God's hands that is all around in our own yards! You sure are blessed with a lot of beautiful flowers and critters in your yard! I love the picture of ChiChi!
