FRANKIE'S FLOWERS

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.

Suddenly deer appeared from the woods.  They flicked their tails and savored the grass.  Honeysuckle perfumed the mountain air and carried the cooing of a rain crow.

Wild turkeys took center stage in our neighbor's soybean field.  The birds pecked at seeds and bobbed their heads as they high stepped across a banquet table.

After my walk, I decided to water the petunias on my porch.  I started when a brown thrasher flew past me.  I discovered a nest with eggs in the flowers.

I'm glad I took time to enjoy the beauty of nature.
