Joy-seeds


Autumn is such a  joyful time in the garden.  I watch for the signs of the season with delight.

The flocks of small birds migrating North -- I wanted to get a shot of the little grey fantails fidgeting and darting in the canopy of the pines.  I didn't succeed but spent a delightful half hour in the garden trying.

The flowering of the Firewheel tree -- It comes from the tropical rainforest so is a tall narrow tree reaching high for the sky.  The flowers are always too high up but the wind or a bird carried one down, for us placing it perfectly atop the spare wheel of the caravan.


Reflection:
Psalm 97:11 The Message (MSG)
Light-seeds are planted in the souls of God’s people,
Joy-seeds are planted in good heart-soil.
