Show and Tell: Beauty in the Garden

I love watching the "wildlife" in my garden. It is such a busy place with bees, butterflies, moths, beetles, and small birds. It is peaceful to observe. I just love the way God puts colors together. Here are this week favorites.

Who says a gal cannot wear spots and stripes together?!


I took several photos of these two "twins". They always landed on the same color zinnia and always faced the same direction.


Don't you just love that the Butterfly matches the flower? ( the orange)


  1. It's so cool that they face the same direction! I've never thought about that, but perhaps it has something to do with the wind or the sun? Or do you think it was just coincidence?

  2. Beautiful! I could watch butterflies all day when they are here. Attracting them is what garden flowers are for!

  3. Oh, so very pretty!!! I had forgotten butterflies.... but what a treat to look at yours - beautiful! Thanks for posting them!

    Hope you're having a safe trip and a WONDERFUL time with your boy and new daughter!!!!

    much love,


  4. I'm LOL-ing...love your comment about wearing strips and spots! And YES, that gal's "outfit" is indeed stunning! What beautiful pictures...thanks for sharing them!

    God Bless,

  5. Very pretty pictures!

    I am planning on stopping by the health food store today to pick up some spices. I hope they have some of the cayenne. I have all of the others you mentioned. I added cinnamom and ginger to my iced chai tea this morning. :-)

  6. I hope you are having a great Sunday.

    I nearly went to ER last night. I posted about it on my blog. I think it is time to see an asthma/allergy specialist.

  7. Hey Tina -- What's up? You are MIA lately! I hope all is well w/you and your family, and that you are just too busy to blog (as opposed to being too sick to blog).


Let me hear of your unfailing love each morning, for I am trusting you. Show me where to walk, for I give myself to you. Psalms 143:8
