Amidst the difficulties that the world is facing right now...
Spring's blooms have arrived in all their splendor!
|Seen on my daily walk, these wild phlox are lighting up the landscape with their resplendent blooms.|
|Someone who loves daffodils and hyacinth planted hundreds of them on a hillside in tow, with the river in view... |
as I drove by my heart was thrilled with the sight of the happy yellow sunshine faces,
that I had to stop and take some pictures.
|I could've sat there amidst their beauty for hours...|
my soul drank up the liquid golden sunshine from their blooms deeply!
|In front of our local nursery, these glorious tulips light up the world with their colorful offerings!|
|Plum trees are adding light to the world too... as their delicate blossoms charm the breeze...|
|This old plum tree leans toward the hillside, yet in its old age, it puts on a beautiful spread to welcome spring...|
|I could sit at the feet of this old tree, and listen to its stories for hours...|
Pinks, yellows and reds dance together
in gracious color symphony
A grand chorus that sings
its lilting springtime melody
A roadside plum tree drops its petals
red and yellow tulips sway in harmony
while daffodils lift cheery faces sunward
... and my hens think it's all just comedy...
|I captured this inquisitive hen peering at me wondering what I was so excited about... |
poor dear, she doesn't know how I've longed all winter for these tulip blooms!
|He wasn't interested in me at all. I had rolled down my window, and said hello, but he completely ignored me.|
|He wouldn't give me his name... but I did get his number!|
|He certainly looked like he could use a few greens to fatten him up!|
|Even though he never really acknowledged me, my zoom lens just happened to catch him warily watching me.|
Here is a link to a little video that I took of him...
|You can see the fresh drilling holes where he found lunch.... |
my dogs decided they wanted to check the stump out,
and my little hardworking friend flew away.
|More feathered friends hanging out around the feeders...|
|This Evening Grosbeak was enjoying an afternoon snack while the rain poured down.|
|This visiting American Goldfinch enjoyed the treats offered up ...|
|These Brewer's Blackbirds, and a Purple Finch were making good use of my bird feeding station as well.|
I pray that the Lord's peace be with all of you, and that your hearts would not be troubled or afraid. Our hope remains in Him, and there is an answer and a solution for all that is wrong in our world. It is in Jesus!
Peace I leave with you,
my peace I give unto you:
not as the world giveth,
give I unto you.
Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
