Show and Tell Friday- Flowers by God...

Today and Friday and time for Kelli's Show and Tell Friday!! There are so many wonderful blogs to visit, so y'all please head on over there and see who is participating! I LOVE Show and Tell Fridays even when I'm not able to take part!!

For my Show and Tell Friday, I would like to share with y'all a few of the flowers that the Lord has grown in our garden this year. I haven't spent nearly as much time with the flowers this year as I have in the past. I still haven't quite figured out how to watch Elizabeth AND pull weeds at the same time. Next year, though, watch out!!! I'll be super ready to really play in the dirt!!!

This is one of the blooms on my hibiscus plant. They have HUGE blooms that are bigger than my hand is long!!! Such a lovely deep, rich, red color, too.

This is one of the oriental lillies that are blooming currently. I had some pink ones bloom a few weeks ago and now the whites one are all blooming. Interesting how God has them timed to open like this. :)

These are some of my black-eyed Susans. I think these are such happy flowers. They grow very easily around our home- who doesn't love easy to grow flowers!!!!


Thank you for visiting with me and seeing just a few of the flowers that God has grown in our yard this year!!

My lilies are blooming right now and oh the lovely fragrance that they send out makes me think of "He's the lilly of the valley, the bright and morning star..."

Beautiful! I know what you mean about not tending the garden as much as you use to. I wonder why we are both so busy!?!

I had a moment when I was overcome this afternoon. As I sat on the floor playing with Megan and she was giggling and crawling all over me I was tearing up. I am so thankful God allowed this beautiful little girl to me ours! I know you understand this feeling.

Diane said...

Those are beautiful flowers! I love your blog too.

Also, I'm going to be staying here at your blog during dinner so we can listen to the pretty music while we eat.

Beautiful! Did you know that in Mexico, the folks make a tea out of hibiscus? Yes, indeedy! My hubby and I made if once for our International Dinner to close out a mission's conference at church. It tasted sort of like cranberry juice. He told me he had always heard it was good for the kidneys!

Blessings to You! Claudia O.

What fabulous blooms! I especially love the huge hibiscus. I live just far enough north (but in Florida!) for my one hibiscus to freeze to the ground each year. I takes until September for it to start blooming.

Beautiful flowers! I enjoy looking at gardens of stunning color with flowers.

Linda said...
