The House Around The Corner



There's this house around the corner, and they have flowers all over the front yard, not just in tidy little beds. They run rampant, and are glorious.

"For as the earth bursts forth with spring wildflowers, and as a garden cascades with blossoms, so the Master, God, brings righteousness into full bloom and puts praise on display before the nations."

I am taking the day off of the computer and going to celebrate my granddaughter's birthday! See you later!

Beautiful...it's like they all have smiling faces aimed at us to share the joy of Spring.

Ginny, in regards to your question about those drift seeds...the sea bean 'heart'...they come from Costa Rica, drifting on the currents of the Gulf Stream....and I only have found very few of those ---but they're supposed to be 'lucky' when you do find one.

They come from this plant: http://waynesword.palomar.edu/plmay97.htm [first article on the site link]

These are beautiful tulips. I like the idea of tulips running rampant. We have trouble getting tulips to grow from year to year.

I can only imagine but your photos showcase God's creation beautifully!

DawnTreader said...

They're wonderful, what an explosion of colour. So you have tulips in bloom already? We had some wonderful warm days in March but now a relapse to almost winter again. Even a bit of white on the ground this morning, and an icy wind blowing all weekend.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I love tulips, Ginny, and know that they must be enjoyed as much as possible when they bloom as they do not last too long. Your photos will make them live on for quite awhile longer!

The Café Sucré Farine said...

Just beautiful Ginny, your pictures, His Creation and Word!

Rose said...

I have lost my blogging mojo as I heard Gill, That British Woman call it...just have not had even the get up and go to go outside and take flower photos....

Ann said...

I love tulips at bid stage, but I also took photos when they are open like that. They have a different kind of beauty, that most professional photographers don't take.
