Blessings... : )

We are being...Blessed....with another Snow...
this Morn...
I find it....Beautiful...
but am...a bit afraid to share my thoughts...with anyone....else...
{yikes}
Folks around here....Really...Really...want...
Spring!!!
Me too...
I posted some images... of Spring...and Early...Summer...
to help...those...Craving...it...so...
Then...after I posted the images... I sat for a moment...
with my Streams in the Desert...
{what would I do..without..it...
it...makes...me...
Put my Heart...in the Right...Places....}
I found...Quickly...
what I needed...
I had already written... about...
so many of the Flowers...
are Volunteers...
around...Home...
I openly admit...
I have a Black Thumb...
I either... Fuss...too much....
or..
not Nearly....enough...
We don't use...chemicals....of any kind...
so...things...look a bit...Over Grown...and Unruly...
but...
The Lord... sees fit...to send The Rabbit Hole...
Such...Splendor...!
Then...I turned to this... in my Little Book...
once again...it was one...I don't remember...ever reading...before....
and...it was....beyond...perfect....
Love to ya...
No Worries....
Spring...will arrive...
Exactly....when She is Supposed to...: )
Below...is the Poem...that followed....
also...
Perfect...
: )
yes...Beyond...Perfect....today...
and...not just...for The Lilies...
: )
 

Yes... the Lilacs... just under the Old Oak....
are waiting...Patiently...
for Their...Day...in The Sun...
Soon...
very...
Soon...
I captured this...image...this Morn...
as Winter...was Throwing...on...another...
Blanket...
: )


Ahhhh...
The Old Lilac Bushes...Never disappoints...
Every Spring...
They Put On A SHOW!
and...they Fill The Air.... with..their
Sweet....
Nearly...Intoxicating...
Scent...
{a little...'Thank You'... for waiting...: )
I think!}
Yes...they are..Soooo
Worth the Wait!!!!
 
 
The Old Oak...is Standing...Tall... behind the Lilacs...
It's New Leaves...so...Vibrantly...Chartreuse...
{sigh...}
Today....it has a Blanket of Snow...on it's Branches...
but...
Look!
Look...what it will be like...soon...
Very...Soon! : )
{sigh.....}
The Peonies... waiting for the Ants... to Open Them...Up! Up! Up!
{it takes a Village...ya know...: ) }
 
Currants...Growing on the Old Ladder... by the Out House...: )
Last...June...: )...
Preparing...for Easter... two years ago...
We...ate Outside That Easter!!!!
Lilacs...Nicky....and...the Green...Green Grass..of Home...: )
ahhh...
Spring...in Iowa!
 
The Hollyhocks...
: )
Yes...they pop up....where you least expect them...
{Most... everything...around The Rabbit Hole...
is..'Volunteer'...
I admit...I have a 'Black Thumb'...
Guess... God knows that....
so...He has Blessed me... with some....
Wonderful...
Wild.... Friends...: )
{Peg...planted Hosta...and a few other... Beauties...that are Easy Keepers....: ) around...the Rabbit Hole...as well...
She...is...a Yard...Bird!
Pal...Val...is a Master Gardener...and is helping out...this year....
I can't Wait...to see what she Brings!
She said she has some...Amazing...Heirloom...Variety...Flora...
and...
TOMATOES!!!!
Holy Smokes!!!}
{I thank...the Lord...for the 'Wild Friends'... with Busy...Hands....as well...: ) }
Polly...enjoyed...another...Volunteer...from
The Lord's Garden....
How it grows there...Is a Miracle...to me..
{He...knew best}
It's...in a bed..of Rocks...
Fights...through...the Wild Grapes....
at the corner...of the Rabbit Hole's
 Old...Gnarly Picket Fence...
it keeps...coming back...every year...
Makes me Smile...Every Time...I walk past it....
: )
 
Another....Surprise!!!
 Lord...
I do...Love...'Surprises'...
Thanks...
: )
