a few more April blooms

They are unremarkable most of the year, hiding out among the Longleaf Pines and thickets that line our roadways; but then comes April...

Each Dogwood flower looks like a hand-carved work of art. They open towards the sky like they have something to say, or sing, back to their Creator...

Have I mentioned how much I love April? Maybe it's the Dogwoods...and Redbuds and Wisteria and Cherries and Viburnums and Azaleas...I could go on. Maybe it's because I was born in April. Maybe it's the pink cheeks on my kids faces as they play that tell me it's finally warm -even in the shade. Maybe this year it's because this is the the last month before May. Whatever the reason, today I am just glad it's April, and I know the One who made it so beautiful.

"Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love,
that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days."
Psalm 90:14


  1. Beautimous! :) I especially enjoyed the first and last pictures...
    Not much longer until you get to be OLD like me!

  2. Pretty pretty pictures, my friend.

    Our wisteria lasted maybe 2 weeks. Sad day!

    All my babies were born in April. Love it!
