A Walk in a Spring Garden

Updated on August 24, 2017

A Walk in a Spring Garden

With winter slowly losing its hold, a walk in a spring garden is filled with promises and wonders of new life. Just about every corner has a new color or burst of greening, even bare branches are filled with sounds of birds as they busily prepare for their offspring .

Is it any wonder that a walk in a spring garden can be as renewing to the spirit as a sweet promise of hope?

Springing to Life!

The spring awakens with the sound of buzzing all around. There's great work to be done!

New Beginnings

A peek inside this opening daffodil reveals the soon to be awakened beauty ~

Just The Start ~

~ Of Hope

May Your Dreams...

...Be a seed, set to sail!

Bloom... - Where You Are Planted!

Spring's Simple Beauty...

...Is Before Us, Allowing Us To Pause ~

Spring Unfurls...

...Giving Promise ~

Blue Bells...

...and Butterflies ~ Rebirth!

The Kiss of the Sun

The kiss of the sun for pardon

The song of the birds for mirth

One is nearer God's heart in a garden

Than anywhere else on Earth

--Dorothy Gurney 1858-1932

A Baby!

Nature's baby, a hummingbird moth, busily starts life, seeking nourishment from a weed...simple beauty to behold!

Renewal ~

...and Rebirth ~ Ahh, so Sweet!

Honey to Bee!

A Wildflower Today ~ Honey Tomorrow!

The Picasa web album is undergoing some tweaks. I hope to have it up and running soon. The video on Nature in the Spotlight is up and running, if you want to check it out. Thank you!

Wonders of Spring ~ - ~ Never Cease!

Wings of Butterflies

For You...

Days of wings from butterflies

Moments of beauty from God

Love to sustain

Hope to endure

Sun-kissed moments to fill your soul,

reflect, refresh, and renew ~

May God be ever with you ~

~ Bev Lemley

Purple Star!

April 23, 2012, this lens won a Purple Star! I am most humbled and honored ~ Thank you!

How does spring renew you?!

      Walking in the garden after the snow has melted is always one of the most beautiful earthy experience I've had...looking for what have survived is always a joy.
