The heat of summer brings neglect to my flower garden. The weeds and produce grow so quickly in my vegetable garden that all other gardening is put on hold. Then when school is thrown into the mix… well there just aren’t enough hours in the day. The numerous times I have walked past my flower garden in the past week has shown me that summer is truly winding down. My flowers are fading and with it all the bright splashes of color and fragrance.
The summer has once again slipped by so quickly.
Normally I post pictures all summer long of the beauty that surrounds me, but this season brought change. I had the privilege of taking photos for two weddings, several families, and a few teens. In the process, I found I wasn’t able to edit all the photos for my customers and my personal photos, too.
But, tonight after I once again glanced at my fading garden, I took a moment and went back to June.
I want to take you back with me for just a moment to see the colors and remarkable beauty of God’s hand.
How can one help shivering with delight when one's hot fingers close around the stem of a live flower, cool from the shade and stiff with newborn vigor! ~Colette
