Spring Flowers

[taken with Nikon D40, April, 2013.]

Every year I like to take a few shots of what’s blooming at my house. Here you see a border of pink phlox as the backdrop to some newly potted cosmos, daisies, petunias, begonias, portulaca, and periwinkle.

I’m not a garden fanatic, but it’s amazing how you put these plants in some dirt and watch them grow into delicious foods, shady trees, and beautiful flowers. (Remember the seed in the styrofoam cup when you were little?) We live in a rough and dangerous world; everyone needs a little wonder now and then.

Here’s a post by Dawn about how spring makes us long for heaven.
