Morning By Morning











With a still mind and a camera in hand, there seems to be a never ending source of beauty waiting outside each morning, requiring only eyes to find it. 

Looking over this morning's photos I hear echoes of a favourite old hymn, running through my mind:

 "Morning by morning new beauty mercies I see..."

None of these do I deserve, none were of my planting. The coriander was self sown from a previous crop, the single violet plant a surprise survivor from the previous home-owner, now thriving with a little water and weeding. The rose almost impossible to kill for I had tried years ago to replace this one with a native plant but it keeps growing for which I am now very grateful. I guess these truly are as much mercies as beauties - and I quietly rejoice......

God has a purpose for all, even with plantings.
Your photos are breathtaking even with bugs you manage to make them look special.

LOVE the tune, I like having godly tunes stuck in my head and this one will be a blessing all throughout my day.

GOD bless and keep you all safe.

Wie wunderschön zart und fein. Bei uns geht der Sommer, aber ein paar Tage werden wir noch gutes Wetter haben, dann kommt wohl der Herbst.

Liebe Grüße von Mathilda ♥♥
