Look! "I Grow More Than Veggies"

Just wanted to show what was blooming around the house and show that I can garden more than veggies, lol! Many things have already bloomed such as Pear trees, Crab-apple trees, Lillie's and such and there are many others getting ready to bloom!

"The proper understanding of everything in life begins with God.  No one will ever understand the necessity of conversion who does not know why God created us.  He created us "in His image" so that we would image forth his glory in the world.  We were made to be prisms refracting the light of God's glory into all of life.  Why God should want to give us a share in shining with His glory is a great mystery.  Call it grace or mercy or love- it is an unspeakable wonder.  Once we were not.  Then we existed- for the glory of God!"  John Piper

  6. Lovely quote for the day! Nice flowers too - we veggie gardeners need the flowers to attract pollinators.

  8. Pretty! I'm so glad flowers are finally here. We're about to drop into the 30s, after continual 80-90 degree weather. I hope everything is ok!

  26. Yep, you have to have a few flowers around to keep those pollinators happy! I always joke that I don't do "pretty" when it comes to gardening, but I do have a few flowers here and there to keep those bees coming back!
