snippets (number 5)

of happyment
petals soft purple
awaken the sleeping earth
glass raindrops shimmer

"snippets of happyment" is inspired by a post on Rasa's blog happyment. I just love that word because it is a combination of the words happy and content. Sometimes something small can just fill your soul with a thrill. So, from time to time, I will capture one snippet of happyment and post it here. 

Some past snippets of happyment:
fire with an explanation of, and link to Rasa's visual diary, Pieces of Happyment
crocus open blossom macro
daffodil macro and "I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud" poem
snowdrops photo and haiku

  12. I love how vibrant the purple is in the first photo! I planted purple flowers this weekend and my husband is the kind of person that thinks you match the color blooms to the house!! (Silly man). So he was not too sure about the different plants I chose but they sure are pretty.
