An attempt to declare the Glory of God for what He has chosen to do with our lives. A legacy to leave to my children in the telling of it.

Picking Flowers

As one of her fair entries Grace is gathering a display of flowers to dry. It was the perfect opportunity to spend some special time together, just the two of us.

One of our first finds was a patch of Black Eyed Susans, one of my favorite wild flowers.

The flowers seeds we planted earlier this spring had started to bloom so we picked a couple of those, too.
As I looked at these pictures it took me a little while to realize why they captivated me so. It finally dawned on me that it was the sunshine. After 3 weeks of nearly constant rain and gloomy weather it was so refreshing to see the sun again.

Of course keeping all of the critters from eating the flowers proved to be a challenge.

A beautiful bouquet.
A beautiful nature walk with my little girl.
More than a Fair project was created today.
