Besides me that is.
Is the garden.
He knows the names of all the plants and gets such a thrill out of watching them grow.
Its spring here now in Queensland and with plentiful rain, the blooms are thriving.
Doesn't it look wild. The flowers under the windmill are called butterfly flowers.
The creeper growing over the arch on the front path, is a lady slipper.
It has a rich dark yellow flower with some red in it.
It also grows up a side gum tree.
Here is a closer look. Can you see it in the folage?
Another look at the ach over the front garden pathway.
The flowering purple shrub dominates the side path.
The yellow are candlesticks. The orangery red are kangaroo paws.
I love the spiky palms. These will grow to about fifteen feet tall, or more.
Up close to the candlestick and kangaroo paw.
Underneath the house are portulaca's, and, an Indian chief.
My little car has flowers on the front doors.
On the bottom driveway Ray has four different iris's which have finished blooming.
When God planted the Garden of Eden, the only problem was the snake.
Nothing is perfect and my only concern with our garden is that a snake may make its home there.
I am terrified to allow my little dogs outside alone at night.
My granddaughter just found a three metre (9'11") long python skin..
Which means there is one living close by.
I only leave screened windows open at night in case one of these intrude.
Brown and redbelly black snakes are a concern by day.
But you can't let problems in life stop you being happy.
The garden gives so much joy. I love to sit and look at it from my front porch.
Its my special place, to dream and pray.
And God Saw What He Had Made, and Behold It Was Very Good.
