6th Day

This is my mother's forget-me-not flowerbed.
Early in the spring she has lots bulbs there, snowdrops, crocus,
even daffodils and tulips. In between she plants the begonias to blossom in late June.
And then, then it's the time to sit still and watch the wonders of the Lord; the forget-me-not time. The seeds were spread last summer and from nowhere the bright blues explodes into a hymn to the power of the Great Gardener. Their beauty is beyond description, and when they're finished, they are so easy to remove, they have practically no root net.
Next spring we'll watch eager from the balcony; will they be here again.
They always will. They just need that little time to spread their seeds for the next season.

Psalm 37:
Resign thyself unto the LORD, and wait patiently for Him;

Hi Felisol,

Your mother has a green thumb!

Consider the forget-me-nots of the field... Solomon in all his glory was not dressed in such finery.

An admirer of your photos and your love of all things, including the majesties of God's nature, His gift to us!
Thank you, Felisol.

Such lovely delicate flowers like snow drops.

May the Lord bless your heart as you wait upon Him

for sure and we had to do a lot of waiting this year for anything to bloom felisol!
even the golden dandelions were late poppimg their heads up to greet the spring.
today is the first day of summer and the last two weeks of warm weather has caused the cherry blossoms to come and finally there are fresh red stawberries...we shouldn't be surprised though because god has said,
Genesis 8:22
"While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease"
your mom's forget-me-nots are so lovely felisol...from the distance, they remind me of the great fields of purple flax flowers in my beloved manitiba where our sister saija lives...she is probably enjoying the sweetness of them now!
i love the verse that john put right he is!
i always enjoy your norewgian flower posts terry
