New Blooms for June

Cleome

Mum
Double zinnia
Can you see the tiny baby rabbit ? It got trapped in the garage most of yesterday.The Bennie said that mother rabbit has been in the front yard all day, now we know why. The baby was soon back in the garden and the mother left. It is fun to watch animals, they can  communicate with you (The Bennie) If you have the time to listen.

The New Testment Great Commission

Pentecost  Sunday
In the New Testament is when the Holy Spirit descended upon 120 followers of Jesus Christ and is traditionally called the Spiritual Birthday of the Christian Church.

And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto Me in heaven and in earth. (19) Go ye there fore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and the Son and of the Holy Ghost: (20 ) Teaching them to observe all things what so ever I have commanded you: and, lo. I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen. ( Matthew 28:18-20)

In The Pink

Our new neighbor had a nursery come out and landscape her flowers bed.
Large  Crepe Myrtle trees that I bet are pink and other shrubbery

Pink knock -out roses
Lots of pink Lantana. It was done so well and very pretty. After about three weeks with no rain it began to die the Crepe's leaves were falling. I told the Bennie I am going over and tell her she must water.  She didn't know that and was going to call them and ask if she should water????
She has been doing a good job with the water now and I think it will all live.
 I am watering much because she is out of town for a week.
I just could not watch it die--- now could I?
