What made me happy this week - 14/52

Colour!! 
All things colourful actually,
and so much of it surrounds my world. 

Again this year the 'Toe Toe colourists' have been back.  Who ever it is that adds bright colour to the normally White tops of the Toe Toe that grow wildly down by the railway yard, I say THANK YOU!!!  This sort of thing can only brighten up a day.

Back in my garden
I have such a selection of Dahlia growing in abundance
so I picked a bunch
with the assistance of a young male cat!

Tonight in the garden
the colour was still on show
Preying Mantis hitching ride
and Cosmos dancing in the dark.

Love the idea of people sneaking about painting plants!

Those Toe Toe sparkle,( not with glitter but colour) and would give anyone a smile for their day. Hope TOF is doing well, and your night garden, toes assisting, all lovely as always. Hugs from a wet Monday down here.

Those brightly coloured Toe Toe are fantastic. I'm wondering who might have painted them? Love your helper's cute little paw, and the photo of the Praying Mantis is just fantastic! xxx

Toes seem to be a theme in your world.
Fancy having the idea to secretly colour white flowers. I bet they are cool people I'd love!
Thanks for sharing.
Your garden is ridiculously gorgeous...as are your photos of it.

The toe toe would make us smile too.

Cold and horrid down here. Batten down the hatches and turn the heaters up.

I love the paint bombing Pampas! xxx

Blessings on those who do good deeds by stealth. For every jerk that sprays graffiti on a public building, let there be a citizen who decorates the pampas grasses! (Speaking of stealth, I love The Toe.)

Fabulous colours and catch up >> Love the Toe`Toe as our natural but must say the colours Do it for me as well ..

Would love to see them added to a Harakeke setting .. Colours on your Dahlias are stunning..Sue,,, So appreciate your shares.

Went past a garden the other day and I kid you not the flowers (I thought maybe Dahlias, were the size of sunflower heads in white and red

next time in that area will get DH to stop,, and I am going to go in and ask the owners the name of them ..

Love being over 50 lol cos now know,,, most people will happily share names of things in the garden !!

Love that Wee Toebee as well,,,, such a happy lil companion .

So happy TOF is on the mend,,,,, when you look back a month,,,,, you ones have come so far ..
