this morning's walk about...

the front bed is really growing so fast...
a slow steady rain of .2 last night has had many benefits...
the columbine are beginning to bloom...
and soon the humming birds will come...
the peonies have tight buds...
and soon they will open...
along with the iris...
by this weekend it should be an awesome sight...
my shadow...
Mr Wiggles...
is having a hard time waking up this morning...
there is still more to do here...
the decroative grass has come back...
so we will be digging it all up and getting rid of it again...
baby tulips are open this morning...
and I have sat here many times already...
this could end up being my favorite place to spend time...
a pink tulip...
still wet...
in the lilac...
and a second one...
hiding...

I have a hard time understanding how there can be so much hate in the world when God has given us so much beauty...
so much peace in our soul...
but it just proves that a world without Christ is chaos...
and a soul without Him is tortured...
one man caused so much pain...
and one man gave everything He had to save the world...

everyone of us has the potential to change lives...
to touch souls...
to reach out and be what God needs us to be...
one life...
our life...
can make a difference...
it's our choice...
to do good or evil...
what a waste it is if we do not choose good...

yes, there is alot of beauty in your yard. Our hummingbird showed up last week! I could not believe it, he usually comes about May 15th
so we had to hurry and get the feeder up and nectar made!
raining here so maybe tomorrow I can work in the yard?

Oh, Tete, Love Is... that breathtaking tulip touched by dew ...

Your florals are awesome, so anxious for mine to be at this stage. We are laying 10 cu yds of mulch today & then the PLANTING BEGINS ... YAY!!!

One does question 'why' re the world vs all the beauty God has bestowed upon us to enjoy. Every moment is precious to do with our 'gifts' that He has given us.

TTFN ~
Hugs,

Absolutely fantastic photos! We are a few weeks behind you but this has me super excited. Nothing better than a peony bud. Thanks for sharing.

Your flower beds look so nice. Ours aren't doing much. We need some of your rain.
I know how Mr.Wiggles feels.I'm not a morning person.
