In Awe


This was the view from the front yard the other evening. 
Amazing. 
It was beautiful.

We have a break in the rains this week and have been out planting. 
It feels like we are behind, but I know we are not. 
We still had frost on the ground the other day!

All other projects have been placed on hold until all the seeds are in. 
I am in awe of the process.
There is dirt.  Lots of dirt.
Into this dirt I press the smallest of things. 
Just a little seed.
Some so small they are hard to place.
But inside each one of those tiny dots contains an entire plant just waiting to grow.
Water and sunshine are added and food and beauty will (hopefully!) appear.
And I press on.
And on.

And I wonder about how many more rows
I
can
bend
over
before
I
fall
over.

And I laugh at myself, stretch, and press on.

It was an amazing sight. There was so much to see. Thank you, ladies.
BZ-It might be easier to say what we are not planting.
I've finished four kinds of corn and a bunch of herbs today.
We have any type of squash, lettuce, carrot, potato, etc you can think of.
It's a bit nuts.
We're on the third wave of flowers here.

In my part of the country, clouds like that would send us to our safe room (having no basement, for us that is a middle bathroom). :)

The crazy weather here has affected some of my garden but most of it is fine. It is the cool weather plants which are having problems, especially with the record breaking heat we had in March and this last week.

Love seeing pictures of your world!

view from your front yard? i agree beautiful and amazing!

and i can't help but think of the analogy behind the planting seeds and the persevering, as it relates to the kingdom of God.
