Beautiful Friends


WELCOME

It's a most beautiful time of the year.  The leaves begin to change, but flowers continue to bud and bloom.  I do love to walk in the fall.  Fresh crisp air that awakens me and makes me appreciate all that is dear to me even more.

Roses continue to boast of their beauty, as if trying to remind me today, that I need not worry for they will return in the Spring to brighten my days.  For surely that is their sole purpose.


Days decrease,
And Autumn grows
Autumn is everything

I cannot endure to waste anything so precious as autumnal sunshine by staying in the house.

Mountain Meadow


Mountain meadows call
Lakes glisten in the sunlight
Blossoms look skyward

Mountain meadows call
Never closer to heaven
Much closer to home

Sunday in Newburgh

Ron and I had a glorious walk this morning.  When we walked down by the river there was a cool breeze and as if on cue the barges were on parade.  Then on the way home we stopped by Ben and Penny's and the flowers were just beautiful.  My it's grand to live in a river town.

~~~~~~


Found this toad stool on the walk home.  Flat as a table just waiting to be set for tea by the fairies.  It's a grand day for tea in the garden.

Thanks be to God!!

A Haven for Vee
Beginning a new adventure today.  I'm joining Vee at her Note Card Party this month.  It looks like an enjoyable way to spend a Wednesday.
It has been so hot this summer that the waterlily has be scarce.  But when she does bloom she is just gorgeous!!!  One of God's treasures shared with us!

Mosaic Monday~~Reflection
















~~~~~~~*~~~*~~~*~~~~~~~

My mom lives in an adult community in Montana that has the loveliest gardens.  And a walk in the early morning allows for a stroll through it in compelling silence.  From the vivid colors to the dewdrops on the roses, you find yourself reflecting on creation and it's beauty.

~~~^j^~~~
Thanks be to God!!

The Gold Fish and Mosaic Monday


nature is God's own
color and life abounding
thanks be to God

The fish in the pond are finally coming to the top to feed so we can see them.  We knew they were still in the pond as there were none floating as if they had died, but just wondered how they were doing in all the heat.  Look!  They are thriving.

The Gerber Daisy looks like bleach had been dropped on it by accident, but no, that too is from God's palate.  Wonders all of God's creation!

~~~^j^~~~
Thanks be to God!

Mosaic Monday


This week I missed Haiku My Heart...I hate it when that happens.  It give me a chance to use the "little gray cells" to challenge my grasp of the English language.  So in conjunction with Mosaic Monday I will add the haiku I didn't post earlier.


tender is new life
gentle is the love we give
to nurture and grow

~~~^j^~~~
Thanks be to God!

Mosaic Monday, Macro Monday




Bittersweet October.  The mellow, messy, leaf-kicking, perfect pause between the opposing miseries of summer and winter.  ~Carol Bishop Hipps

These two quotes have touched me today.  Especially as the month of October wanes.  For my garden is not going to pass easily into winter this year.  Even though it has been left to its own resources, without the weeding and pruning, it continues to thrive in all its beauty.   It's true for me that fall is indeed, that "perfect pause between" summer and winter.

Mosaic Monday/Macro Monday

Pictures from vacation, 2011

Clouds flung into view
A vast sea of fluffy white
Just for our delight!



Wee flowers in the pond. 


Tis the season's end
Dainty ladies wilted not
Under scorching heat


Wishing all a grand Labor Day!

Mosaic Monday~~Summer's Garden


Flowers... are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world.  ~Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1844


Even with all the heat and humidity this summer gardens seem to have flourished.  And as we enter the final days of summer let's cherish the blossoms, colors and aroma of the glorious work of God's hand.


Eden's garden must surely have been this beautiful.  

~~~^j^~~~
Thanks be to God!!!

Long Two Weeks



The tulips are gone.  The daffodils have passed.  And for two weeks we've had nothing but thunderstorms, hail and rain.  Now is the time to get into the soil and do some rejuvenation!  Not just for the plants but for the soul as well.  Working in the glory of the sunshine,  thanking God for it since is has been so long away, that's what I will be doing today.   I'm also going to, inthis quiet, take stock of my eternal garden.  There are sure a lot of weeds there.  For tomorrow's forecast is for more clouds and rain.   I wish you all a glorious sunshine day.  Please soak up some of that natural Vitamin D and give your soul a hearty dose of the eternal sunshine by communing with the Triune God.  

~~~^j^~~~
Thanks be to God!

-Mosaic Monday~


Hoping For Spring

Hummingbirds and butterflies
Dragon flies and robins
Roses, daisies, and daffodils
All these wonders are Spring to me

Posting this again because I've been homesick for the beautiful scenery at "home."  In just a few months will be going home again for a visit!  The "fix" gets me through the rest of the year!
