With Time and Care

Bay Leaf Plant
Wounds are healing

Restoration is at work

New life is coming

Haiku

This little Bay Leaf Plant was growing great in a small area of the lawn but one day he was accidentally mowed down and was deemed too injured to keep. He was headed for the compost bin but I intervened to save him. I wanted to give him a new chance at life and so with good soil, water and sunshine I see he is now coming back. New sprouts are emerging! Soon he will be a big glorious Bay Leaf Tree!  😊 

Life at times is rough

Somedays might be really tough

Never giving up

Holding on til my last breath

I choose life over death

Field Flowers

Field of Daises
Don’t worry, go forth

Dressed in His finery.

Flowers of the field

Clothed in His great splendor

Far greater than Solomon

Tanka

And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. Matthew 6:28-29
