Lilly of the Laguna!

Beautiful Jo and my lovely Lilly all opened up! We have been enjoying this Lilly so much! Pat and Barry Krause from Canada gave me this years ago and we dig it up each year and replant the bulbs! It has really beautified our garden area here at Laguna Shore Village! All the area wildflowers are beautiful too!

Spring along the Laguna Madre is spectacular for me! My Lilly is opening better than in years past! I took the upper picture with my new Tamron 60mm F2 lens. It is so nice and sharp for flowers! It's hard to take a bad photo of flowers!
The lower photo was a sunrise this morning. I love to park by the shore and absorb the peace among the cries of the gulls and the hum of boats and the ever-changing light! It's a wonderful place to read too!

Last night's Memorial Celebration was wonderful! Both my parents were well enough to attend and the speaker was very knowledgeable and easy to focus on! Our meeting was at 9:15 because it must be after sundown and we share our Kingdom Hall. That time slot was less desirable to me but I enjoyed the less crowded surrounding!  When you cooperate with the arrangement you are rewarded. Thank You Jehovah!

Gifts of Spring

The beautiful Lilly is coming out to the sun! I love this time of year and this Lilly too! I hope we all dwell on the many blessing we have! My parents are feeling poorly and I am being constantly bounced between the joys of spring and the sadness of their pain. Hopefully it won't be long before Armageddon. We certainly need Jehovah's Kingdom and promised blessings!

Glorious time of year isn't it! All the flowers are in bloom! The roses are exploding with buds and blooms. The Red Lilly is peeping out of its hoody. Every different Hibiscus is wearing their Sunday best too. The Hoya is putting out more tiny teeny pink blooms(see previous post). The Honeysuckle is so fragrant too! I'm sorry I cant remember all the tiny flowers names. Our creator surely loved us to put so many different types of flowers! If you get the chance bring your camera to Corpus Christi for all the different opportunities. I wish I could cheer up the poor people in Dallas, I know they are shell shocked from those tornadoes yesterday!

Gardens of God

On the 5th it will be the anniversary of Jesus death! I so appreciate his sacrifice for us! It must have been a beautiful time of year there too as he visited the Garden of Gethsimany to pray! He had one thing on his mind. That he glorify Jehovah by how he endured the coming earthly death he was about to suffer. I hope we see more than the beautiful flowers and spend time to think about our life and the path we are following to decide if we are showing our gratitude for all we have and that which is to come!  I wanted to show you some pretty flowers. The Canna Lilly is opening up ever so slowly and all the Hibiscus are so showy!
