2013 Year of Happy 1/52

I've been seeing quite a few bloggers joining in with this project recently, and thought I would too!
 I like the idea of celebrating the little things in life that make us happy, I think this will help make me a bit more aware of all the good stuff that fills my days.
So Sundays are going to be my 'happy' week posts, 4 photos from the week of moments/things/experiences that have made me happy.

1. young fresh salad greens growing nicely in the garden. Yum.
2. rattlesnake beans. The most delicious bean I have ever tasted, crisp and tender, so worth growing!! 
If you live in Australia and like to grow your own, buy some seeds and grow these! Now!
(Seed from here) (although it seems they are out of stock!)
3. first dahlia of the season, welcome to summer!
4. icy cold drinks on a stifling day and my Orla Kiely tins waiting to be filled with stuff.

  2. Your garden veges look wonderful. I've joined in for 52 weeks of happy two.
