Bloom where you're planted.....

this time of year.
Here are a few things growing in our yard.....

Orangey-red and pink azaleas
These bushes are about 30 years old!!

Pretty Pansies.....
that remind me of my father-in-law.
He loved pansies!

Snowball bush
Pappy got this for me for our anniversary last year 'cause they have a special meaning to me.  My Mammie (Daddy's Mom) had one in her yard and it was in bloom when Pappy and I got married.  She told me that every year when it bloomed she thought of us.

Purple Iris
These are Tennessee's State Flower!

The lady I used to work for got Pappy and I two of these for our anniversary about 25 years ago.  
They've never bloomed as beautiful as this year!

Matthew 6:28-29
"And why worry about your clothing?
Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. 
They don’t work or make their clothing, 
 yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are."

What about y'all?
What's blooming in your neck of the woods?

Breathing in Jesus,



  1. Beauty all around, Deb! I, too, love this time of year. And I can almost smell the fragrance from the roses in your heading! So lovely!


Kind words are like honey—
sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.
Proverbs 16:24
