Down My Garden Path




Well, it's not really a garden path -- I just wandered around my yard with camera in hand, enjoying the gorgeous display of spring flowers. This is my favorite time of year. We have four distinct seasons of the year here in Oregon but I think this is my favorite. The spring rain showers are refreshing (and necessary) and they bring the abundant colors that are so different from any other time of the year. The songs of the birds punctuate the daylight hours and the breezes seem to refresh my soul. I just can't help but sing:

When through the woods and forest glades I wander,
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees.
When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur,
And hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze.

Then sings my soul, my Saviour, God, to Thee
How great Thou art, How great Thou art.
Then sings my soul, my Saviour, God, to Thee
How great Thou art, How great Thou art.

I am blessed and truly grateful!
