Ashamed


I'm ashamed to admit that this photo was taken in my rose garden! The poor rose bushes were struggling to put their nose above this tall grass. I weeded that garden bed this weekend ... whew.

Reflection:
Romans 1:16 (New International Version)
I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.

  1. Nice shot, the colours are so soft and I've never noticed pink on a grass before. Don't be ashamed, weeds are only plants growing in the wrong place.

  3. I'm with you guys I love grass seed heads and I hadn't noticed the pink in this type of one before either. The only problem is I like roses even more than grasses and my fledgling rose bed is next to the neighbour's vege patch.

    Regarding weeds only being plants in the wrong place ... I agree and enjoy them for what they give me (other than hard work) ... trouble is their is a lot of weed obsession around here because of the impacts on the native bushland.

    In honour of the weed I am going to run with weeds all this week .. that should make Julie groan.

  4. *grin* ... only groan because of your definition, Madam!! Too narrow, too narrow.

    But you also know that I adore grass and grass seed, so post away.

    I loved that grass that Paula had in her autumn collage. What did they call it - muhly? Do we have that variety over here?

  6. Julie, I also loved Paula's grasses. Glad you found the answer to the grass question because I was going to say I didn't know the answer.

    I think you will enjoy the weeds this week, I found them quite fun.
