Queen of the Garden

Last year on one of my trips up to the Dallas area
I stopped in Schulenburg, Texas
at the Garden Company

While strolling around the gardens
I found a beautiful plant ......

The Queen Mum Agapanthus from the
Southern Living Plant Collection

she has become the QUEEN of my garden.....

I love watching her beautiful blooms
come to life..........

Who loves a garden still his Eden keeps
Perennial pleasures plants and wholesome harvest reaps
                                                                            Bronson Alcott

To cultivate a garden is to walk with God
                                         Christian Nestell Bovee

A garden really lives only insofar as it is an
expression of faith, the embodiment of a hope
and a song of praise.
                                                 Russell Page

Life begins the day you start a garden -
                              Chinese proverb

Isn't she royal

Queen Mum is the crowning glory of my garden

Every Little Birdie says

and the glory of the Lord will be revealed.....

Through His Creation!!
