In Auntie Em’s Garden

I read a quote on the WordPress site yesterday from Gloria Steinem saying, “I don’t like to write. I like to have written.” That’s sort of like me with gardening. I do like to get my hands in the dirt, but it’s so hot, and my knees hurt with all the squatting, and I’ve pulled muscles in my back from tugging… But I so love the results! Bright colors, and especially blues, make me happy! (pinks follow a close second.)
Flowers are just part of the method of propagation that God designed for plants. I’m so thankful for His beautiful creativity! He could have designed a nuts and bolts, practical way, but He added all this beauty too.
Psalm 19:1– The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament sheweth His handiwork.

Mr X is off today, so we are taking a little day trip. I’ll leave you, Dearies, with some pretty sights from my garden to start your weekend on a happy note!
