Delight in Everything

Now I know it's not so easy to find delight in everything,
but at the moment, I find only delight in my yard.
My mother-in-law gave me two lovely koi  and they 
spawned so now I have 20 baby koi and that makes me happy!
I found the cutest baby snake love them! 
 I have a pretty good 
population of Praying Mantis which are my all
time favorite predator insect.
My husband had a swarm off honey bee's 
move into an empty hive he had in the backyard
these normally cost about $100.
Thanks to the bees, the cucumbers and cantaloupe
 are going gangbusters!!!
Life is great!

I have a card to share using an old 
Close to My Heart stamp set:

It's pretty simple so I added some bling
for added interest.
So tell me what do you find delight in?
Have a super weekend!

your yard sounds delightful Beth, glad you're enjoying it!

I've been cowering inside with the air conditioning! I only thing I like about summer is when its over & Autumn arrives with football season! lol I'll let you know about my delights then! haha
I do enjoy seeing the veggies grow & ripen! Still seems so magical, even after all these years!

oh and your card is GORGEOUS!!! I love your design!
hugs & blessings
