The wildflowers have continued for several years after planting over our rebuilt drain field.
More verses of one of my favorite prayers –
“Remember, O Lord, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses, for they have been ever of old. Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions: according to thy mercy remember thou me, for thy goodness’ sake, O Lord.” Psalm 25:6-7
We had to have our drain field replaced several years ago, so I planted wildflowers in the section of disturbed ground. They’ve been re-seeding and coming back every year since then.
The beauty of God’s Creation amazes me constantly- year after year, even day after day, minute by minute.
“And a great windstorm arose, and the waves were breaking into the boat, so that the boat was already filling. 38 But he (Jesus) was in the stern, asleep on the cushion. And they woke him and said to him, “Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?” 39 And he awoke and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. 40 He said to them, “Why are you so afraid? Have you still no faith?” 41 And they were filled with great fear and said to one another, “Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?” Mark 4:37-41 ESV
Who then is this, that even the flowers burst into bloom at His call?
Here are some planted wildflowers in the side yard (if you plant them, are they still wildflowers?)
Actually, this is the second year of the flowers. I planted them last year where the ground was bare due to a new drain field installation. Then I noticed they were coming back, so I left them alone. Glad I did.
