Sweet Pleasures...


When the Lord God created the earth and all it's living creatures...
He did it for His glory and our enjoyment as well as our use

well...I sure did enjoy finding this sweet baby dove...
sitting quietly under the banana trees...
waiting for mama and papa doves to bring food

it is very rare to find a fledgling dove as they hide so well
I didn't linger too long so the parents wouldn't hesitate to come back quickly



we've got pineapples coming along


the pineapple blooms are growing into fruit...
and soon, they will lose their lovely pinks and purples as they mature into yellow-orange



the zinnias are going full force...
and since most of the flowers are in a favorite pink color of mine...
it behooves me to pick a few for my table on the veranda to enjoy

the roses are giving their beauty under the veranda...


I'll keep them on the bushes and once they pass their prime and wane...


and as the younger rose buds come up...


and delight with the promise of full blooms...


I'll pick the petals from the old roses...


and scatter them in the breeze for the chickens


while the chickens like the rose petals...
they ignore the zinnias...
and I always pay attention to what my chickens will and will not eat
they usually know what's good and what's not


so, I take advantage of this and bring my pretty zinnias...


to my veranda table for the pleasure of enjoying God's creative work


The works of the Lord are great,
sought out of all them that have pleasure therein.
Psalm 111:2

May your day or night find pleasures in the sweetness of my Lord's grace.

  2. Your blog is such sweet escape. :o) I wonder how a rose petals tastes as compared to a zinnia petal? If only the chickens could talk.

    1. Hmmm, never thought of it, Casa Mariposa. I know what rose petals taste like but, never licked a zinnia. I'm guessing rose petals taste nicer : )
