More flowers showing their bright faces

The tulips in “my” barrels at church had faded when I returned after my Maryland trip, but the Iceland poppies and violas are putting themselves forward.

In the fall I planted some of these poppies at church, and some at home. The only yellow one I have at home is very bright. These pale yellow ones at church are as big as saucers.

I love this orange-flowered perennial which I did plant well over a year ago, but I don’t remember now what it is.

This particular year’s spring showing is unique, of course. But if I am diligent about watering these containers it will be like every season’s display in colorfully giving glory to God. It is really a lot of fun to be an assistant gardener to the Creator.

  1. I was just reading “The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady” again last night. It made me want to get out my watercolors and go outside to record all the beautiful growing things (as Leslie said). Why don't we? I guess we journal our gardens in our blogs nowadays, you think?
