Shower & Puddy in Sepia (Pt.2)

Yellow Shower growing beside my husband's shop..
(carrying this over from Giant's & Dwarfs)

Giant Crape Myrtle peers out..mixed between two shades of yellow (I think the light one- a favorite, is only visible here) with a pink shower~



There is no method of obtaining a velvety lawn but by repeated mowings; and there is no way of developing tenderness, evenness, sympathy, but by the passing of God's scythes. How constantly the Word of God compares man to grass, and His glory to its flower! But when grass is mown, and all the tender shoots are bleeding, and desolation reigns where flowers were bursting, it is the most acceptable time for showers of rain falling soft and warm.

I love the sepia and the dappled light in the kitten pictures! And the lovely pale yellow blooms with the blur sky behind. Your analogy is so apt and true.

Imagery...flawless...
These words sent shivers through me...
but by the passing of God's scythes.

Let's be perfectly clear- the war on free speech is spiritual!
