Bow down


Everything in the garden is a little bowed down from the continuing rain.  After a hot dry start to summer it has ended cool and wet.  The calendar ticked over to Autumn this week and the plants are flowering true to form ... the garden is fragrant with ginger and belladonna lilies, the tuberous begonias are beginning to bud and I can see a flash of red flowers in the heights of the firewheel tree. Reassuring delights from the Lord our Maker.

Reflection:
Psalm 95:6-7 New International Version (NIV)
"Come, let us bow down in worship,
let us kneel before the Lord our Maker;
for he is our God
and we are the people of his pasture,
the flock under his care."

  1. As you move into autumn, we move into spring.

    The photo goes so well with the Psalm.
