In your garden 2010: Entry 31

It almost killed me trying to make a decision on which picture to send! I finally decided on the sunflowers because I liked the light and shadows and the background.

Our gardens don't always come out the way we envision, but that's the fun part. They're always in the works.

My niece asked my sister "Mom, when are you going to be done working in the garden?" Oh, they just don't understand!

God has blessed me more than I could imagine by allowing me to take care of His creations!

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." – Philippians 4:13
