Gods blessing; Harvest

As the summer draws slowly to a close, a new phase of the gardening year at
Lily Springs Gardens has arrived.

Harvest, I believe it is my favorite part of gardening.

Harvesting the fruits of your labor is so satisfying, it is the culmination of everything, the realization of things hoped and longed for.

When you plant those tiny seedlings in the spring, you really are having faith that in the fall at their allotted time they will produce nourishing fruits and seeds, and all this actually happens because of God.

It is His rain, His sun, His wind, His warmth, and His atmosphere, that makes everything grow.
"While the earth remains neither seed time or harvest, snow or heat, day or night shall not cease!"
Thank you Lord for this gift of seasons.
