Beautiful Florals... from our surrounding landscape

~Dew drops on the Iris leaves~

Faith's azaleas did not do very well this year, but the small bunch that did bloom was, as usual, a beautiful work of art from our Creator!

Spring Beauty! Their name describes it. Beautiful little flowers that bloom in spring! We found these in the woods.

Vinca! Periwinkles to be exact. Gorgeous ground cover that is very hardy, sometimes staying green through the winter and sending forth brilliant starry blooms in spring that last quite a while.

And then there are the tulips!

Though for the last couple of years (while thinking that we were moving) we have not paid much attention to our tulips in the front yard, they have not repaid our negligence and have sent forth quite a few blooms, of different sizes and shades to our delight!

Deep inside.

For as the earth brings forth its bud,
as the garden causes the things
that are sown in it to spring forth,
so the Lord God will cause righteousness
and praise to spring forth before all the nations.
Isaiah 61:11
