Six on Saturday: Mid-August Quick Six

The garden is mostly green this time of year, but I’ve pulled together six shots of color to share today.

From top left, going clockwise:

  1. Encore azalea Autumn Amythest   2. White zinnias at night (with a little orange peeping around the edge)   3. Purple torenia over Lemon Crème coneflowers   4. The hot colors of gaillardia and melampodium   5. Purple Angelonia   6. Pink torenia and zinnias

As our daily showers continue, I must admit some “survivor guilt” for the abundance of rain we’re having along the Gulf Coast. Farmers and ranchers in Texas are enduring an extended drought, as is the western US and also other parts of the world, including the UK. It is a serious threat to food supplies.

Mat 5:45b  For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.

There’s neither blame nor explanation. However we can pray for a break in this dry spell, and that beautiful rain will drench the thirsty ground soon.

Blessings to you, Dottie

  1. As one of those farmers and ranchers experiencing the impact of this year’s extreme drought, don’t feel guilty Ms. Dottie. Pray for rain and thank God for what you’re getting. Right now, green is a beautiful sight to behold to these weary eyes. Your gardens show me the hope of a future here when God releases the rains. They remind me of what is to come and what has been before. Perhaps I’ll print this out and show it to the girls to remind them of what green looks like. God’s blessings ma’am; and on behalf of my many friends and neighbors here in NETX, we thank you for your continued prayers.
