New Growth

The new growth of spring always fascinates me. Those small leaves look so clean and shiny.

We are now well past that stage, but I will share these images anyway. all of them were taken right on my yard.

These are not my words, but I find them encouraging. I hope you do too.

Three Things You Cannot Recover From:

The word after it is said,




The moment after it is missed,



The time after it is gone.




So choose your words wisely, embrace every moment you have with those you love, and never waste time arguing over things that will not matter in the last 5 minutes of your life.


Those last words bear repeating:

So choose your words wisely, embrace every moment you have with those you love, and never waste time arguing over things that will not matter in the last 5 minutes of your life.

This is so true, and most people don't really take it to hert till they are pretty far along in life. My favorite is the third one.

Yes indeed. I was told something similar "100 years from now it'll make no difference." Sometimes tho, easier said than done.

Love these early spring photos. There really is something quite thrilling to see these new signs of life. And you caught a bee in one.

Oh my! What a powerful thought at the end. That is certainly worth pondering and taking to heart. Thank you. And I love the photos of your new leaves springing forth! Yes, there is such beauty in every stage of growth in nature. God has certainly given us all things to enjoy, if we just open our eyes and behold!!

I love the quote -- great words by which to live. Your pictures are beautiful and it looks as if you're going to have a great deal of beauty in your yard this year.

Hi Ruth, I love the way you enjoy the details of nature as I do. Yes, earlier this spring I took some pictures of a tree in my back yard with little blooms and new branches like you have in this post. Nature is, to me, the most wonderful display of God's power. Your new June header is excellent! Your photography is also excellent. :-) Your closing thought is perfect. I hope you have a fine weekend and a happy week ahead. John

I love these sentences about words. This is very true. I also love your beautiful photos. They go very well with these statements about words and I need to remember this before I speak. Words are very powerful and you can't take them back once spoken.
