Thankful Thursday:3 gifts budding

3 gifts budding/blooming

This one seems a little too easy right now.  My garden/yard is full of things that are budding and blooming.

Here are just a few that are new to this world…

1. The delicate pink color of this strawberry in bloom

2.  The sweet smell that this budding freesia plant will produce when it turns into a flower

3. Waiting with anticipation to be able to eat the tomato that will be growing from this bloom on the tomato vine

I’m thankful for all these wonderful flowers and plants that are blooming right now.  Everywhere I look, it’s as if all of nature is on display for us to enjoy!

What are you thankful for?

Will you join me in looking for these gifts and sharing them with others?

Gratitude is the inward feeling of kindness received. Thankfulness is the natural impulse to express that feeling. Thanksgiving is the following of that impulse.” ~Henry VanDyke

I hope you have a wonderful “Thankful Thursday!

    It’s with a twist on your post I say that I am thankful the pollen fueled headache I had yesterday is GONE! And of course I am thankful that your Thursday posts remind me to be thankful, because of course, you know you can’t ever be too thankful!!! 🙂

      I had a headache yesterday too! I was thinking it quite possibly could have been for the same reason! All is well today, and I’m really glad yours is gone as well!
      And yes, there is ALWAYS something to be thankful for! Some days we might have to look a little harder, but I think that makes it even better! Thanks for sharing your thankful things 🙂

    Is the freesia a perrenial? I think I planted some bulbs last year, 2 made it. Now I hope that they come back. 🙂 Hereabouts, the only strawberries flowering are the wild ones – ay! they spread so quickly. I wish I can gather their fruits but the fruits dry up before I could pick them.

      I’m not really sure. This is the first time I’ve ever had one, but I know that it is a bulb, so I would think that it will come back! I hope for your sake it does! They smell so nice – very, very fragrant 🙂 I’m hoping I get some of the strawberries before the little critters do, sorry you aren’t able to enjoy yours 😦
