I have got to say it is finally starting to look like a garden around here. When I saw this bleeding heart in full bloom I kinda went nuts photographing it. You don't know how many years I have tried to get bleeding hearts to hang out and multiply in my garden. They always petered out after one year or so. But in this garden I have finally hit the right combo apparently, east facing against a wall. You know it pays not to give up. I am sensing a little analogy here Lord. I seem to have so much patience with my garden. I keep trying different combo's till I find a solution, till something works. I think I need to take this lesson into other areas of my life. Just keep trying to find the right way, the right combo, the right direction the right fit. Just don't give up especially on the things He has placed in your heart. Then one day I will say it was worth it, just like my lovely bleeding hearts! Bingo! I think I will name this bed "My Encouragement Garden" This was the first year I planted this bed, and now you can see the results three springs later!
Okay I am getting all sorts of analogies here. How fitting are my blue forget me knots with my bleeding hearts, and white candy tuff :)
This is so feeling like a real garden...hehehe. Below is my Lavender Twist tree only in its second spring.
Flowering apple tree
Redbud...oh it has been so long since I have been able to
look straight up into the sky from a Redbud tree in full bloom.
We have several neighborhood pheasants that like to take a gander in my garden when they think I am not around....they are very shy guys.
