I am joining Friday Favorites with Rachel for the first time today. I am becoming acquainted with some of the bloggers who host memes thanks to my friend Lea CiCi's Corner. She tells me it is such a great way to meet other bloggers and a way to blog regularly even if you are suffering from writer's block. This sounds good to me, so thank you Rachel for letting me join you this Friday.
The Beauty of Nature in SpringtimeWhile the pansies are wilting in this early Spring weather, the blooms that normally appear in April in North Louisiana have made themselves known in mid March this year. Our area is known for its spectacular azaleas. And they did not disappoint us.
One of the mysteries in our yard is the Clematis. It can look so completely dead most of the year, but in March it is revived and becomes a traffic stopper on the side of our house.
One of the favorite spring beauties in Louisiana is the Iris. The yellow is so pretty!

Thank you for joining me today for Friday Favorites.
"All things bright and beautiful, all things great and small,
All things wise and wonderful; Our Father made them all.
Each little flower that opens, each little bird that sings;
He made their glowing colors, He made their tiny wings.
Cold wind in the winter, Pleasant summer sun,
Ripe fruits in the garden; He made them every one.
He gave us eyes to see them, and lips that we might tell
How good is God our Father Who doeth all things well."
All Things Bright and Beautiful
Cecil F. Alexander, 1818-1895
