"For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead..." Romans 1:20

Spring Flowers

Listen to: Vivaldi's "Four Seasons" - Spring


Spring is such a lovely time of year because of the bursts of color.  I think what I love most is the different shades of green of the grass and of the leaves as they begin to appear on the trees interspersed with the various colors of flowers.  These are some of the trees and bushes in bloom in our yard:


Red Bud


Dogwood


Cherry with some unknown bush below


Viburnum


I have some perennials already in bloom, too:


Bleeding Heart

Primrose


These little flowers come up naturally every year in the grass:


Violets

Ground cover:

Periwinkle

And, of course, lots of bulbs:

Crocus

Red tulips

Pink tulips

Jonquils


And many more plants pushing up through the soil:


Easter lilies


Peonies, Coreopsis, and False Aster


Hostas and Coral Bells in the background

And I can't forget all the baby bunnies springing up everywhere!



Yes, Spring is in the air!  A time of renewal.  A time to plant new seeds of hope and love.


Father, thank you for each season in my year....each season of my life.  May I awaken from my slumber refreshed and invigorated--ready to grow more like You.
