Showing Off My Blooms!

Spring is just gorgeous in Missouri (however, we don't like the tornado warnings!) ...

What a lot of rain we've had to help make the grass, trees, and bushes so lush and emerald green.

As each bloom appears in my garden areas, I slip on my gardening clogs and grab the d-SLR and shoot away ... I love keeping a gardening journal of all the iris and other blooms. Some of the hybrid irises didn't bloom last year, so they must be taking turns! What fun surprises!

It's been challenging to capture the photos between the thunderstorms, and the high winds predicted for tonight might do some damage. If that happens, I'll have the slideshow to reminisce.

These are some of my favorite Bible verses about grass and flowers and His promising Word:

As for man, his days are like grass, he flourishes like a flower of the field; the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more. But from everlasting to everlasting the Lord's love is with those who fear Him ... Psalm 103:15-17

All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field ... The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God stands forever. Isaiah 40:7-8

See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? ... Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself ... Matthew 6:28-34

Blessings and more!

Your iris's are a true beauty. I am a gardener too. As each flower blooms I can't help but to notice how incredibly beautiful God made them for us to enjoy.
