I’ve seen quite a few blog posts about this winter’s weird weather – I agree it’s been weird around here. The picture was our peach tree back in January. The weather was warm enough, long enough, to get it confused. One problem is it started blooming before I had time to prune it. So, now it will get extra big this summer.
I decided not to prune it while blooming – maybe there will be a few peaches. We’ll have to wait and see.
But, the blooms were pretty, as usual, and did foretell the coming of Spring. As several folks have said – time to start thinking of gardening time. As with everything, God had perfect wisdom in creating the seasons. It is always wonderful to start seeing the hints of new life coming with the approach of Spring. It reminds us that the Lord is always there, always with us, always watching over things, and always working for His glory and our good.
Praise the Lord for Spring and the hope that God gives us.
Praise the LORD, all nations! Extol him, all peoples! For great is his steadfast love toward us, and the faithfulness of the LORD endures forever. Praise the LORD! Psalms 117 ESV
