I’ve missed a bit on the blog posts the last couple of weeks, but thought I would show a few blooms from the backyard. At the moment it has been dry and the last few days were super “wet” – not from rain but from humidity.

And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow ; they toil not, neither do they spin : And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.”  Matthew 6:28-29 KJV

  1. Lovely blooms, Bill. I’m sure you folks are enjoying such beauty. I didn’t make a garden this summer or even fuss with my perennials, but they’re trying their best anyway — the reward of past labors. And I’m enjoying the wild sunflowers that spring up unbidden.
    As to the verse you shared, that’s a tough one to put in practice, isn’t it? My clothes don’t spring from the soil ready-made; I have to work at getting them. Even my perennials could use a little thought (in the form of weeding & fertilizer.) Yet this verse is a humbling reminder that when we think we’ve done such a good job at making ourselves attractive, we still don’t hold a candle to the wildflowers.

  2. Thanks, Christine. I had my cycle of not doing much with them last year so there was much work to do this year. But, it’s been a good year. We definitely need more rain.
    And, yes, God’s creation is always amazing.
