Epitome of Summer

I ran across a great quote the other day that I wanted to share...
'God has sown His name on the heavens in glittering stars, but on Earth He planteth His name by tender flowers'
Jean Paul Richter (1763-1825)

Wow! What a great way to envision God's glory on Earth!! Is there any wonder why flowers tend to nurture the soul? As I was walking around my garden, I decided to take some pics of some of the flowers that I've planted this year, and realized how quickly the essence of summer slips away...I figured I'd better capture their beauty before they start to wane... Enjoy!!


  1. Such pretty fleurs!! So glad you got some snapshots of them to share with us.

  2. Your flowers look so lovely. It was nice to see you yesterday and I hope you get a chance to enjoy this beautiful summer weather we've been having:-)
