Our Creator just does the most amazing and beautiful things with green, flowering and growing things! Even though I've known that about our God and Creator all my life I am still in ABSOLUTE AWE at the things He blesses my day with! Now is the season for all the fruit trees to be blossoming and I'm surrounded by fruit orchards . . . cherries (sweet and sour), apricots, plums, peaches, pears and many, many varieties of apples. I step outside and the sight is all around me and the fragrance on the air is heavenly! But it is also the time when I see new green growth coming up in my flower beds which means I have to get out and start getting my "gardening" muscles back in shape after their winter rest. There is a lot of work to be done to get the old plant/flower matter out so the green, fresh and new can blossom and grow. The first flowers to show their gorgeous faces are these yellow irises, which I believe are a variety of German Bearded. I have other yellow irises but they are different and come a bit later. THANK YOU, DEAR GOD, FOR THE "CREATION CANVAS" YOU PAINT FOR ME . . FOR US!!!!
