Hidden Treasure

I took a stroll through the garden this morning.  I love being out there before the demands of the day begin and before the summer heat sets in.  The red climber is in full bloom, trying hard to free itself from the trellis and plant itself on the roof.

Nestled behind the blooms is a wee little home for two adorable cardinal babies.  I found a rare moment when Mama wasn't giving me the "I'm going to peck your eyes out if you don't get that camera away from me" look.

Such a blessing and a treasure to have this life before me to witness every day.  Since Max, our golden passed, we have much more wildlife in the garden.  Bunnies meet me in the dark, the neighborhood cat we've dubbed "Boo" winds himself around my legs when I'm weeding, unaware of his arrival.

Such fragile yet strong creatures to be able to survive the elements.  God gives us all what we need, when we need it to flourish where He's placed us.  Have a wonderful Monday!

With joy,


  1. There is nothing that makes me feel closer to God than being in a garden. Maybe that's why he chose to put us there in the beginning.
    The roses are beautiful and I love nests of baby birds.

  2. You have found your own words that you described my photography with...."a part of my heart that reminds me of all that is good in life". And you found it in your own garden. God is good and life is beautiful!
    Don't let the kitty get the lil birdies. We have had more of the wild friends to visit since we do not have a dog anymore either.

  3. God feels closest in the garden. His gifts are magnificent.

  4. It is so easy to feel at peace when you see (and read) these things in the morning.

  5. What a beautiful place to build their nest... in the rose bush! You were lucky to get a peek. Those parent birds are so protective!

  6. Simple, thoughtful, and touching...thanks for sharing your thoughts and creations...smiles...Renee
