Miss Frankie's flower garden welcomes parishioners to Pilgrim Baptist Church in the Blue Ridge Mountains.  She plants, waters, and weeds her flowers with loving hands.  It's like a taste of heaven savoring this rainbow of flowers at this country church. 

I hope my blogger friends have enjoyed Miss Frankie's flowers.  She loves to work in them and to  provide a beautiful setting for folks to worship and to commune with nature.
