A whole lot of green…

 

Live Everymoment

 

The theme at the Live Every Moment photo challenge is green.  Whenever I think of this color my sweet friend Debra comes to mind.  It’s her very favorite color! 

I thought I’d also join in at Macro Friday this week!

I found this interesting flower in bloom while we were in Memphis this week!

I was so excited to come home and see lots of new growth all around.  Our first tomato of the season.  So nice and green.

I was surprised to find all the new growth on our sago palm.  Wow…the wonders of life are truly so beautiful!

For Easter my husband blessed me with a beautiful yellow rose bush to plant in my garden.

Now how's this for the color green?  They had this delicious mint Gelato at Kay’s Café in St. Jude Children’s Hospital.

 

Fabulous Friday

 

 

For my fabulous Friday I’d like to share this picture I took of my sweet granddaughter modeling the new dress she wore for her 6th birthday.

Green tomatoes! Our rule for green tomatoes, is that you have to harvest one red tomatoe before you get to harvest any green ones. Without that rule, we would pick all the green ones for frying!!

Continuing to lift up prayer!
Psalms 18:31-33 For who is God save the LORD? or who is a rock save our God? It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect. He maketh my feet like hinds' feet, and setteth me upon my high places.
