Kitchen Window

I remember when the daylilies and hosta bloomed. Not so long ago.

How the yard can be full of perennial colors at their times in the seasons.

Then something small adds so much at another time.

This morning and now my computer tells me that it is below freezing. Karl reminds me that Lake Michigan keeps us warmer in Fall. Tomorrow when it is light, I will check our thermometer in the yard and compare data.

REST acrostic poem

Matthew 11: 28 (KJV): “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

I am reprinting the acrostic poem and Bible verse from March 21, 2010. Grateful and interesting to see older posts that are still viewed. The 2010 post includes a lily photo by Karl. I rediscovered acrostic poems with blogs.
