Dressed for Spring!

“This is my Father’s world, the birds their carols raise,
The morning light, the lily white, declare their Maker’s praise.
This is my Father’s world: He shines in all that’s fair;
In the rustling grass I hear Him pass;
He speaks to me everywhere”
-Maltbie D. Babcock

Our very old water oak loses a few limbs from time to time.
This dogwood, so far, has escaped being struck by a large branch!It has often been said that the dogwood bloom is a reminder of the
cross of Jesus!Azaleas are popping out everywhere with a wide variety of colors!The large pink blooms appear to be a “pride of Mobile” variety!Our snowball bushes are near their peak!With a close look, you can see raindrops hanging on the petals!Our friend, Joann’s natural landscape!A close look at the red azaleas that are seen from a distance in
the previous picture!The white azalea blooms almost resemble clusters of fairies!Life-giving water-refreshes and restores!Black Creek below Noccalula Falls! April Wisteria really makes a statement!It seems these large wisteria vines enjoy being hosted by a big pine!The blooms look like clusters of grapes!Our friend, Joann has mastered the art of relaxation!Maybe Joann doesn’t get to use the hammock as often as she
would like, someone has to keep the lawn mowed!Something about the color of the sky above the dogwood bloom
makes this photo special!We are convinced that we need a few of these Yoshino Cherry trees
in our landscape!The little ones are looking for a big meal before
siblings hatch and demand their share!Certain types of Japanese maples add wonderful contrast against the
shades of green that are abundant in spring!Oreo thinks he is hidden!Tulips…they depart too soon!

“All things were made through him, and without him was not
any thing made that was made”

  1. Oh what a nice spring filled post! You are so far ahead of us with all those shrubs and trees in bloom. Love the dogwood and the azaleas. Oreo is too cute staring back at you and those baby birds are just adorable! We are just seeing signs of life growing up north here so it’s a joy to see what you’ve shared.

    • Liz, I love spring when everything comes back to life! Our winter was colder and wetter than usual. We had a late frost, so some of our flowers got bit! Thank you so much for reading and commenting! Blessings, Pam

    Awww… those baby birds are simply precious! And the blossoms are gorgeous! I loved seeing your Snowball Tree…we have one in our yard, but it’s not as magnificent as yours. Thanks for sharing this beauty with Roses of Inspiration. Hugs and blessings!

    What a breathtaking garden! I love Wisteria. When we visited there I couldn’t believe how it grew wild all along the freeway and back roads. Really a breathtaking sight. The baby birds are just precious! Oh, and those Azaleas, heavenly! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
