A Lovely Finish

Image
 May is leaving us with a lovely finish. The clematis has started to bloom... Spiderwort and Yellow daylilies are giving us a show... The pink peonies are bursting forth... White Campanella bells are standing tall as the month of May waves farewell. Lastly one must not forget the foxglove.  They too wanted to say good by. On that note I will say good night and wish all of you a lovely finish to your month of May. Hugs Debbie "He has made everything beautiful in its time.  He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end."  Eccl: 3:11 (NIV)

Busiest Month

 May is the busiest month of the year for me. There is work indoors and outdoors.  Never seems to be enough time in the day to get things done.  Is anyone else finding the same situation? If so come away with me for a moment and rest in the beauty of a peony blooming...   or watch a hummingbird drink a bit of nectar... take a break and just rest ... and finally look up and see the sun beginning to set  at the end of the day. Hope your visit here helped you to pause and relax a bit.   Hugs Debbie "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest."  Matt: 11:28 (NIV)  

Gardening

Image
These fine May Days find me gardening. Violas and pansies are always the earliest annuals planted here at Harmony Hills.  They do not mind a bit of frost and even thrive in cooler temperatures. They have the sweetest faces and come in so many varieties.  Mr. Bunny was happy to take his place once again among these beauties. As warmer weather arrives more time is spent outdoors weeding, digging and planting.  There is always garden chores to be done. So for now friends I am off to the garden. Have a lovely week. Hugs Debbie    "The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it." Gen.2:15 (NIV)

"My Mother's Prayers Have Followed Me"

There Is an old hymn that comes to mind today..."My Mother's Prayers Have Followed Me". My beloved Mom was a woman of prayer and I know she prayed for me throughout her life. Today I am so grateful for all those prayers. Hope you will enjoy hearing this song. God Bless! "...and do not forsake your mother's teaching."  Prov. 1:8b (NIV)    

Gone

April is gone and May has returned.  I confess friends this is one of my  favorite months.  Yes the bluebells and the daffodils have faded but there are some lovely tulips stepping up to take their place. The dogwood are giving us a lovely show... azaleas too. In the midst of  all this beauty I have begun to paint again. Seeing the spring flowers blooming gave me back the desire to pick up my brushes. Sometimes there are certain seasons that inspire more than others - perhaps this one is mine. So even though April is gone let us welcome May. Have a lovely week dear ones. Hugs! Debbie "I will send you rain in its season, and the ground will yield its crops and the trees of the field their fruit."  Lev.26:4 (NIV)
