I come to the garden alone,
While the dew is still on the roses;
And the voice I hear, falling on my ear,
The Son of God discloses.
And He walks with me,
and He talks with me,
And He tell me I am is own;
And the joy we share as we tarry there.
None other has ever known.
C. Austin Miles 1868-1946
I have been enjoying my garden so much this spring! The peonies have been gorgeous this year. I took lots and lots of photos of them, but I figured I should limit myself to sharing just three!
Last fall Joel and I put about 3 heaping loads (using the bucket loader on his tractor) of rabbit manure on my flower gardens. All I can say is~ WOW! I had read that rabbit manure is an awesome fertilizer and let me tell you my gardens are living proof. Most of my plants doubled or tripled in size.
I don't have any pictures of my vegetable garden yet. The weather here hasn't been great for growing produce. It has been very rainy and wet. I spent most of the week with a light sweater or sweatshirt on, very unusual for June. Because of all the rain, I ended up having to replant my lettuces and spinach. I have a few patches here and there of little spouts, but not even close to enough of what I will need. I hope the replanting does better.
When I am out working in my gardens, I feel such tranquility. The song above "In The Garden" is an old hymn and one of my favorites. God is definitely in the garden. Just look at the above photos! The intricacy and beauty is breath taking. Only God could create such magnificence!
