It's like a jungle out there in the garden ... so much rain. I've been using the Christmas break to get to some belated Spring cleaning inside and out. And today we have a shiny New Year too.
It's always nice to try something a little different as well as continuing with the tried and true so this year I am going to add a mid-week post where I do a little reminiscing with recollections of when I first 'met' the flowers I find in my garden. Do you remember the first time you noticed, really noticed, an azalea, camelia or forget-me-not? Or perhaps an old fashioned violet or carnation brings back some fragrant memory from the past. I'm going to dig up these stories and dig into my boxes of photos and memorabilia .., so much more fun than digging in the garden.
Happy New Year to each of you. May it be one full of great blessings -- I'm excited and eager for the new things the Lord has in store.
“This is what the LORD says— he who made a way through the sea, a path through the mighty waters, “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” Isaiah 43:16, 18-19 NIV
