My Happy List: Leopard Prints & a Hike

I tossed my phone on the stool in the bedroom closet and saw this. I hadn't made the connection before on how similar the patterns are and how much I love leopard prints. How funny...



We ate out the other evening with friends and upon leaving the restaurant was drawn to these flowers outside. I don't know what they are. Can anyone tell me?


I took my first hike with our local hiking group in Broad Ripple Village, Indiana, a slow four mile hike which was perfect for starting out. Here are some of the sites I saw.

  1. Oh My, your not only creative you are super talented too! Listened to some of the songs and now I know where you and Ashleigh get their singing genes from! Thanks for sharing patty, I missed that one. I am also seriously considering getting a cameo, owls? for Xmas?! wow, a bit halloween-ish I thought, then I saw the gold color - perfect and genius!

  2. Hi Patty,

    I'm surprised you were able to find your phone on the stool with the patterns being so similar. A wonderful leopard print. Those pretty flowers are Johnny Jump Ups a/k/a Violas. Your hike was a very scenic one. Lovely photos.

  4. Those flowers look like Pansies to me. Unless they were really tiny...then, they were probably Johnny Jump Ups. :-) Looks like an enjoyable walk. Have a great day!

  5. Yep, I agree with Donna that the flowers are Johnny Jump-us. I love them! What a lovely area for a hike. :D

    Your phone case is so cute, and so you! LOVE it.

    Thanks for linking-up! It made my day.

  6. The flowers are also known as Pansies. I think it is just territorial if you call it Johny Jump UP, Violas, or Pansies.

    I love the scenery on your hike. The totems were pretty cool too.

  7. Just popping in from Ricki Jill's Happy List post.

    Good for you for getting out and hiking 4 miles. You have a beautiful spot to hike through with lots to look at - always important for me so the time passes. Your Christmas owls are great, but all I could think was that either you are really late in getting them done or you are super organized for next year!
