The Beauty of Nature in Springtime

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 Springtime

While 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

Hello, My name is Libby. I enjoy reading good books, painting, blogging, spending time with friends and whatever my "Heart" leads me to do. Welcome to Beauty Without Within.


  1. Super post Libby! Your yard must just be gorgeous right now. Our azaleas are gone now, the rain took what few that were left down.

    So glad you joined and loved sharing in your day. Hugs!

  2. So lovely! Spring is such a gorgeous reminder of the Creator.

  3. Libby, this is a beautiful post! I am so glad that you've joined Friday Favorites -- it's such a time to give glory to the Father, the Creator of all, who has blessed us with beautiful things. I love your flower pictures. Here in Minnesota we don't have flowers grown yet so I've been blessed by your pictures.
    I hope to see you again and I'm so thankful to meet you!

  4. Thank you Lea, Carissa and Rachel for the kind words and welcome to Friday Favorites. I look forward to being part of this special group of ladies.
