Single Rose Bud


A single red rose
Waiting to boldly blossom
Happy to be loved

A rose bud of any color causes me to smile.  It has exquisite folds, delicate layers, and hues all their own.  I anticipate the blossom, but can wait because the bud is so very singular.  It's one of of a kind.  Even the bud residing next to it will not be the same.  

And so it is with humanity.  It is a bud.  It will blossom.  It is diversity.  It is a beautiful creation.  We should all spend time enjoying it instead of demeaning, debasing, or humiliating it because some are different.  We should allow each and every person bloom without pruning it before it has a chance to bloom.  Allow God to prune the flowers in the garden, for he is the Head Gardener.  

Thanks be to God!

~~Mosaic Monday~~

May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun
And find your shoulder to light on,
To bring you luck, happiness and riches
Today, tomorrow and beyond.

~Irish Blessing


This weekend we visited the gardens of some very dear people who allowed me to take pictures in their gardens.  This is the just a sample of the beauty I found there in.

Thanks be to God!!!

Visit Mary at The Little Red House and share in the beauty offered there.   Lisa at  Macro Monday  also has much to offer.  The pictures are grand.

I would also like to remind you that Wednesday is Adventure Tour Express.  Be thinking about the adventure you would like to share on our journey together!

The Pond Has a Hole In It...

The Upper Pond
Taken 5/18/2008

I will make rivers well up on barren heights,
and fountains in the midst of valleys;
turn the wilderness into a lake,
and dry ground into waterspring.

Isaiah 41:18
(The Jerusalem Bible)

Well, it would seem that we have another hole in the larger of the two lily ponds. We had one in it before but Ron was able to find it and repair it. He hasn't been that successful this time. The water lilies in both ponds, however, are really very pretty this year. The fish are gone and Freddie, our resident frog has taken up residence elsewhere, I suspect. Last year the lily pond was the only thing in the garden that didn't need work. Now, with the results of the drought last summer and the ice storms this winter it has really taken a toll on the yard. I have been glad that the dandelions that Ron worked diligently to keep down for the last two years did not return. So we have our work cut out for us with the "barren heights" and the "dry ground."

It just means we'll just have to keep pluggin' along, little by little.

Have a Grand Weekend!!
Thanks be to God!
