in gardens {day 5}

day 5

 

what is it about being in a garden that totally speaks to your soul?  flowers and plants can create such beauty as to remind you of their intelligent creator. and yours.

yesterday we toured Longwood Gardens with some new friends who had guest passes and invited us to tag along.

tour guides

talk about an amazing place!! it was a perfect day to walk around in the sunshine and take in the natural beauty.  there are fountains, secret paths, tree houses, a HUGE conservatory, and lots and lots of flowers. i’ll let you enjoy a few more pictures from our adventure:

after a day of wandering in a beautiful garden, i’m reminded of what Jesus said about worry:

“And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life? And why are you worried about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these”

Matthew 6:27-28

    KIM – you should have seen Grandpa’s dahlias this year – they are far above and superb than those you saw at Longwood Gardens. We were there years ago and know the nice area it is. Grandpa had dinner plate size (usually 10″ or bigger) in vivid shades of deep red, deep orange, beautiful yellow, pure white, deep purple, orange cactus large dahlias tipped with golden ends – he had about 20 types at least so his area on east side of our duplex was one beautiful and colorful place these past 3 months. He had a total of 35+ plants – all heights from 6 feet tall to foot tall – just a note as we did not take photos – have all these past years but CVC residents would come by to talk to Grandpa all the time. Know you know Grandpa has a green thumb with dahlias (and roses) his greatest love in flowers. Grandma
