Grapes an' Tulips

Grape Hyacinths that is.

I love these flowers. 

I'm sure after you've had a look; you will too. ;)

A verse from the song "All Things Bright and Beautiful" comes to mind: 

Each little flow'r that opens,
Each little bird that sings,
He made their glowing colours,
He made their tiny wings.

And when looking at them, it's quite clear that they didn't just happen by accident, and like everything else, they were designed by God. 
Small and insignificant though they are, one of the many hundreds of thousands of flowers He made, they are still made with care and beauty.

I like to think of them as little Blueberry Trees.

Some of them are planted in a puddle of grass, creating a splash of Purple, growing Will-Nilly, Hither and Yon.

The rest are on a sort of mini hill, just spilling over and anon....

And really, each individual flower, especially the top buds that haven't opened yet, kind of look like a water balloon. 
Don't you think so?

But that could just be me.                          =)

You also might notice that the unopened buds is imprinted with a star . . .

Behind them are the Tulips :

 We had a nice flock of them last Spring and this year they popped up again, and are soon to bloom!

 Which means yes, the rest of these pictures are also from last year.  =)

Partly because I took some rather good pictures last year, but didn't have any way to share them then . . . 

...And partly because if I took any more... I'd have to go out and buy my own memory drive. ;D

 Aren't these leaves just awesomely Green?

Remember that Riverbirch tree from the second picture? It casts some neat shadows across the Tulips around noon.

The leaves are funny too, because they have tiny little hairs that make the raindrops ball up and roll around!

Lastly, every good writer has a conclusion, so here's mine:

Psalm 92: 1-2

"It is good to give thanks to the Lord,
    to sing praises to your name, O Most High; 
to declare your steadfast love in the morning,
    and your faithfulness by night"

God Bless!

  1. Once again, you have not ceased to amaze me...Jenny, you are a truly amazing photographer. I mean, your pictures are probably the same as (if not better than) a proffessional photographer with a DSLR. <3

    1. Aww, that is so cool! They're just the cutest things!

  3. Wow, thanks Jessie! I'm glad all that practice last year has paid off. =D

  4. Awww, man, I saw "grapes" and since that's my fav fruit... But I love this flower! The shadows and the highlights are really wonderful:)

  5. These are some of your best photos yet! You have some serious skills, girl! I love how close you get to the flowers; they look so beautiful. And it's cool to think of God as the ultimate designer. He has the utmost creative eye!
