My Garden Joy


Hi Friends,

I want to start my post with this beautiful scripture.  This is a card I received with my monthly “Journey” from a friend in Lakeland, Tennessee.  She has been sending these to me since 2015.  Journey is a woman’s guide to intimacy with God published by LifeWay Press.  She inserts a little note with every monthly edition. I just swooned when I saw this. There is butterflies also on the stamps.  Anita is a very Godly woman who brightens the days of many of us through this ministry. 

Now, a short visit in my garden……


If we were walking through my garden, I am taking you from left to right…this swing  has moved with every move.


Two of these and a fire pit.  Bob uses it for burning leaves most of the time.

This patio was done after we looked at the space for a while.  A good decision.  The glider belonged to Mother.


These have just stopped blooming.


These are now blooming.


So beautiful…just love the color.

That is salvia just behind the lily.  Blooms all summer and the hummingbirds love it.


This is my only hydrangea that is blooming now.

The roses have stopped blooming but the daylilies are blooming.

This beautiful show belongs to my neighbor but I hope to have shasta daisies next year.



My grass is really growing and I expect to have lots of tall flowing grass. I just took a few blooms from the garden.  This little bird belonged to Mother.

Thank you friends and thank you Anita.

  1. Dianne, what a delightful stroll around your garden. All of your blooms are so pretty, and I love all of your areas for sitting and taking in all of God’s creation. I used to get Journey, I do love that first photo. Blessings my friend, Pam
