Rare Appearance

The last time My bird book notes said I saw this bird was in April 22 2008.
The Rose-breasted Grosbeak, what a treat to see him at the birdfeeder.
We are in their migration range to the north.
 If I had seen the female I would not have known it was a Grosbeak.

For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, but with the precious blood of  Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.
1 Peter 1: 18,19.

Wild Hackberry Tree

Is having a seizure of some kind
 It is losing it's leaves.
It is a member of the Elm family and it could have a fungal thing going on
that is caused by wet weather and will get better as it gets hotter and dryer.
So for it has not lost all of it's leaves.

Low In The Grave He Lay

Low in the grave he lay, Jesus my Savior! Waiting the coming day,
Jesus my Lord! Up from the grave he arose, With a mighty triumph o'er his foes;
He arose a victor from the dark domain, And he lives for ever with his saints to reign.
He arose! He arose! Hallelujah!  Christ arose!

"Call Unto Me,

and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things which thou knowest not."
Jeremiah 33:3
God, help us to live one day at a time and enjoy each gift that you
have given us. Help us to be glad and rejoice in each new day.

Spring Cleaning

Not like me to work so hard in retirement
 I knew when The Bennie could not find the marshmallows
it was time to clean the food pantry.

The Red Bud Trees Are in Full Bloom

 The trees are making leaves
Where the old ones try to cleave
Changing all colors from brown to green.
The birds are on the wing; and from tree to tree they sing.
The farmer has his plow; and getting ready to make food.
From the great amount of seed he will need.
It must be Spring!

You know I have forgotten the name of this, it has little yellow flowers when it blooms.
Now can someone tell me it's name?

Lithodora Diffuse "Grace Ward"

Groundcover or rock gardens plant, Low creeping mat gray-green hairy leaves.
Late spring through summer, well drained acidic soil.
This is not good for me just saw it and loved the brilliant blue flowers
we have heavy clay soil and they say that is sure death for this plant.
My rose bushes are looking so good , but I was wrong about having roses Easter
it will be May.

Filling In

I lost a lot of my Pink Creeping Phlox and Candytuft from the ice and snow this year.
So I filled more in, the blue plant is Grace Ward it can be used as a groundcover.
I planted it at the other end of the garden. I liked the bright blue flowers.

Can you raise your voice to the clouds and cover yourself with a flood of water?
Do you send the lightning bolts on their way?
Do  they report to you, "Here we are?
Who endowed the heart with wisdom or gave understanding to the mind?
Who has the wisdom to count the clouds? Who can tip over the water jars of heavens
when the dust becomes hard and the clods of earth stick together?
Job 39:34--38
"Help me Lord to never for get you are in charge of all of the dwelling places."
