A Few Things That Make Me Smile

Motorcycle rides through farm country,
GIANT pinwheels,
sweet chalk messages (happy summer. happy rain),
mailboxes with animals painted on them,
swans you can ride in,
doorbells you can’t help but ring,
beautiful blue blooming clematis,
bright orange wild flowers,

 twisted roots,

 and stencils with spray paint!
