We are only days away from the official start of spring,but I created a little spring inside my house.
Walmart had pots of Hyacinths and Daffodils,so I just had to bring some home.
I realize that the first picture is very similar to one on my last post,but hey,can we see too many spring flowers right now?
When I loaded this picture,I realized I had better look around a little more carefully next time,before taking the picture. I see my checkered dishtowel in the background.Oh well,consider that you have spent a few minutes in my kitchen with me.
Not only are the flowers pretty,but I also like the buds.The Daffodils are so small,but this bud has the promise of beauty soon to come. The plant I bought actually has eight flowers on it,so I am happy with that.
While standing at the door and watching the birds,I saw the White-breasted Nuthatch come to the peanut feeder.He worked hard and finally was able to get one peanut out of the shell.
The picture is not very bright because I was shooting through a set of windows.
The weather was comfortable that day,so I stepped out on the deck and looked for photo opportunities.I saw this one stem of leaves from the Mountain Ash,stuck in the snow and thought it looked pretty. I might add that right where that leaf was,I can now see the grass,so the snow is slowly disappearing.YEAH!!!!
You all know I love reflections and when all the ponds and streams are still frozen I have to become creative.The water in the birdbath had melted and seeing the tops of the evergreens reflected here was exactly what I needed.
In the parable of the Sower,Jesus compares preaching the gospel to scattering good seeds (Matthew 13:18-23)
In a very real way,all of our words are like seeds.Make sure that you're sowing encouragement and wisdom in the lives of others.
