My Favorite Flowers of June

June gives us such a flush of the most beautiful flowers, Penny and I thought we’d go into the yard and capture some in photos for your viewing pleasure.

The mock orange bush fills our yard with the most heavenly aroma.

I think of these flowers as bridal flowers because we picked huge bunches of them for my brother’s wedding.  Congratulations on 7 years of marriage, Tim and Jessica!

And now for a cheery chat with a smiling pansy.

Bleeding heart, it sounds so sad, but is such an elegant flower.

A bouquet of my favorite poppies.

Our garden would not be complete without the whizzing little hummingbirds that zoom in and out and chatter and squeak.  They don’t seem to mind who is nearby.  I am glad that Mom has so many feeders, and places them right outside our windows so we can see the activity so close up.

Chives and pink columbine.  I didn’t realize that so many of my pictures were pink.  I wish I had captured some more of the blues and purples for this “visual bouquet.”

Peonies are so gorgeous!

You may not recognize this unusual flower.

That is the blossom of a tulip poplar tree.  Quite a work of art, isn’t it?

Next is the beauty of the draping wisteria on our arbor.  Another very fragrant place!

So much life and beauty.

All creation has a language,

Words to say what must be said.

All day long the heavens whisper,

Signing word in scarlet red,

Amber rays and crimson rainbows,

Twinkling stars and flashing light,

Punctuate the heavens’ statement:

“God is glorious, perfect, right,

God is glorious, perfect, right”

 
 

All day long the sun proclaims it,

Like a Bridegroom dressed in white,

Coming from His tent to greet them,

All His guest feel His delight.

Words of love and warmth He whispers,

Warning all who hear His voice,

“Oh, be glad and share My table

Dance and celebrate . . . rejoice!

Dance and celebrate . . . rejoice!”

 
 

All creation sings His praises,

Earth and heaven praise His name,

All who live come join the chorus,

Find the words His love proclaim.
