Green Again

After an extremely hot and dry summer, we've had some rain in the last few weeks.
Our flowers are so much happier!

The back of our yard with some cheerful Black Eyed Susans.



The hydrangea bush in the side yard is loaded with flowers!




These flowers start out white, and as Fall approaches they get more and more pink. Most of them are still white but a few are starting to turn.



The back yard is green again!


"He covers the sky with clouds, he supplies the earth with rain and the grass grows again."
Psalm 147:8
