I have always loved sunrises and sunsets. There is just something so peaceful in their beauty. Sunlight gives the feeling of freshness in the air as the sun comes up in the morning. The warmth of the sun is yet to create the vibrancy of the new day, but the promise is there. We especially feel that promise in the cold winter days. When we lived in Arizona, the sunsets I saw there took my breath away. I have yet to see sunsets that glorious anywhere else. I know I get to view Pacific sunsets which in their own right are beautiful too. Some evenings as I look westward, I just have to grab my camera and run outside to capture that beauty on film. A sunset shares with us a part of God's beautiful creation. He has painted the sky with an array of colors.

Sunsets are so beautiful that they almost seem as if we were looking through the gates of Heaven.

Petunias and Hot Summer Weather

It's been two years since I have updated my blog. I had gotten busy with my Etsy shop which took a lot of my time. Just lately, I started missing writing on my blog. So, here I am with my first post in two years! 
 I was looking back at my early summer pictures and was surprised at how much my petunias have grown. the above picture was taken in early June. 

Here it is late August and they have grown so much. They've needed a lot of water and tender loving care during our very hot summer weather (over 100 degrees most days). 

A few times, I thought they might not make it. Glad they did, as I love looking out my window at their beauty.

Hello September!

Hard to believe that we are leaving summer behind already. But, welcome September! Inching ever closer to my favorite season of the year.

September days are here With summer's best of weather And, autumn's best of cheer
