The Promise of Things to Come

Our beautiful spring continues---many fruit trees are full of blossoms still, but some now have the start of what will be juicy fruit in just a few months. It's fun to walk among these trees in our small orchard, checking them over for every little change that mark this season. It was even funner tonight to do it with my hubby who grew up on a small farm who pointed out the 'baby' fruit already evident in what is left of many blossoms.
In our transitional garden, where my love for edible landscaping is most evident, the rhubarb continues to grow larger and lingonberries, an evergreen huckleberry & our four blueberries all have many blossoms.
Soon, we will be enjoying the bounty God has blessed us with this year;
already we are enjoying the beauty He's filled our land with.

As you enjoy the bounty at your table,
remember to give Him thanks
He truly is a GOOD God!
"And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning were the third day."
Genesis 1:11-13 KJV
