Dressed in White

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In the winter time

my garden dresses in white –

I do in summer.

The reflection in our garage window is my summer, garden, play/work clothes drying on the line.  I love my garden!

What is your favorite hobby?

When my garden or I am dressed in white, I am reminded of the following verse:

Come now, let us reason together,”

says the Lord.

“Though your sins are like scarlet,

they shall be white as snow;

though they are red as crimson,

they shall be like wool.”

Isaiah 1:18 NIV

Thank you, Jesus, for washing me white as snow!

  1. I just left a small farm behind when our family moved here a few months ago. I had a humongous vegetable garden, and several flower gardens. I absolutely loved nature-therapy, me and the worms and the birds and the dirt…..but it’s winter now, and I have a new yard with a different climate , so it might take me awhile to figure out what I can plant successfully in our short season, plus I’m stubborn – so I like to push the boundaries in zones a bit in terms of what I attempt to grow.

    1. I hope you find some pleasant surprises and hospitable mini micro-climates in your new garden. We, too, moved to town from an acreage, and it’s been an adventure of discovery for the last three years…

      Blessing dear friend ~ Wendy 🙂

          1. I used to just have a set of stone steps and a windowsill.. jam packed with herbs, fruit and flowers. It doesn’t take much 🙂

  2. Our snow just melted in a thaw, and now we see hyacinths, snowdrops and crocus peeking up through the dirt. It’s only Jan. 17, little botans (short for “botanical entities)! Lovely garden you have, and I am drawn to your wonderful pathway…

    1. I like “little botans”. Ours are having their mulch covering removed by birds foraging… The path is made using broken concrete I salvaged with help from the guys… Thank you for noticing it – I’ve been planting flowering ground cover between them. Let me know when your snowdrops bloom, and we’ll compare timing as we have them too. I can’t wait to take pictures of spring flowers.

      Blessings dear friend ~ Wendy 🙂

  3. I just love that haiku, Wendy, and how you showed it in the pictures! You are such an artist . .always giving us something beautiful to reflect on. Thank you and God bless you!

    1. Thank you, Debbie. I originally did not want to capture the garden clothes in the picture and then thought better of it. Sure enough the photo came in handy…

      Blessings dear friend ~ Wendy xo

  4. Evening dear Wendy-Lee! 🙂 What beautiful shots. I love reading like you do and I collect clowns and all sorts of different ornaments. I have a room that I keep them all in and my computer desk is in there. I love being in there surrounded by all the things I love and just writing away. Apart from my clown room upstairs..the rest of the house is very different. So I go and hide in my play room! Lol …..Hugs Paula xx

    1. Your computer room sounds cozy and cheery! Hugs! Any chance you’ll post a photo of your clown collection on your blog, Paulama? 🙂 I have more buttons in my collection than a fabric store has… I make things with them.

      Blessings dear friend ~ Wendy xo

      1. BTW: Please don’t feel offended by the post I just wrote for Seasons Of Insanity! I just re-blogged it, to my blog! Just having a bit of fun…
        Hugs xx.

        1. You are a sweetie-cake! Now you’ve got me curious… as long as my filter lets me see a blog I can deal with it. Be you and don’t worry about what I think. I got enough work watching my own walk. 😉 Hugs!
