God's Beauty in Spring

By request, I'm posting some pictures of God's beauties displayed this spring. It's amazing how He's made every little detail so lovely! The pictures really can't convey how beautiful the flowers really are.

Yes, I know that Wisteria is a vine and can get annoying, as it climbs everywhere! However, it's so lovely!

Azaleas are one of my favorite flowers, with their bright colors and fluttery petals.

Our Wisteria Falls. =) It positively drips off of the trees. The petals are already starting to make a delightful carpet...

These Azalea bushes were here when we came; they're just bursting with life!

A dancing Dogwood tree - they're spinning their way all through the forest!

Typical of Alabama, however, the weather is already starting to turn pretty hot. Summer is right around the corner...

The flowers do look nice.Are they all on your property?

Anna Naomi said...

Yes, all of the flowers are on our property - and that's not all we have! God has truly blessed us.

We don't have flowers like that here in NE! I guess we will have to keep making do with corn and bean fields.

Yep...temperatures for the past five days: 86,85,88,87,89. Temperature today at 2 pm is 88. Welcome to "springtime" in Alabama!

Gorgeous photos, Anna. We too have a "wall of wisteria", as well as the petite, demure wisteria "tree" that I developed from three vines a few years ago. Perhaps, Miriam can post a photo of it.

Summer comes too soon in my opinion. I don't care for the hot season. I try to spend as little time outside this time of the year, but I might try to get brown this year. :)

I might put some pictures of our flowers on, since Mother subtly requested it. ;)

Emily, I guess your corn will have to do. It was fun looking out over your wide, open fields when I was up there, and I'm sure they're even prettier with something growing in them! =)

Yes, Mrs. Lavonne, summer weather comes way too quickly in Alabama. But - it's supposed to get down to the 70s this weekend - at least at this point...

I won't even try to get brown, Miriam. =) I don't tan - I burn. I'd rather just be my pale self. ;-)

Beautiful pictures! Our wisteria isn't blooming yet, but I am awaiting the day it does. I also remember the days of azaleas..it's to hot here in ID, but they were perfect in Florida.

However, I don't envy your warmer temperatures. It is only going to get warmer! Our weather is really odd. It's cold again, and there is a snow advisery in the mountains! Odd, especially considering it appeared as if spring was here to stay!

Ohhhh, those pictures are lovely! It makes me think of Romans 1:20: "For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—His eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse." Of course anything so beautiful as those flowers had to made by an intelligent Creator!

I'm the same as you, Anna. I normally burn, but never brown.
And I burn badly. Ouch!
