I love how the sunlight filters through the top of this iris
This looks like a yellow arrow pointing to the heavens!
This is a rare brown iris. The color is actually more of a dusty rose
Notice the shadows? You can see my hand holding the camera at the bottom, and to the left of that you can clearly see Buddy watching me. I didn't even know he was there until when immediately after I took the shot, he ran up and licked the camera!
I really like the pattern of the leaves on the ground.
The start of a small vegetable garden. Planted are tomatoes, green peppers, cucumbers, string beans, and soon lettuce.
This Ruby Breasted Grosbeak is no longer afraid of us. it will stay put even when the other birds fly away. Yesterday it even took a dip in the garden pond while I refilled the feeder (just a couple feet away from me)!
And finally, my little spot that I create each summer featuring …
LOVE FAITH and PEACE
The fake rock on the porch (against the house) Reads: On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand....Just like the well-loved hymn! (below)
My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.
When darkness veils His lovely face,
I rest on His unchanging grace;
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil.
His oath, His covenant, His blood
Support me in the whelming flood;
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my hope and stay.
When He shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh, may I then in Him be found;
Dressed in His righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne.
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.
—Edward Mote (1797-1874)
