Spring Blossoms ...

Last week we visited my folks out in the country.
All of the peach and nectarine trees are in bloom.
I love wandering through the orchard.
This is my favorite time of the year.

Look at these gorgeous trees ...
look at those amazing clouds ...

I found several very busy workers.
They were doing such an important job.  
I just stood and watched.
They didn't seem to mind and one of them let me take a close up photo.
I think about how year after year I see the happenings of spring.
I see the trees blossom.
I see the bees working faithfully.

And year after year I am still amazed by the awesomeness and beauty of God's creation.

Wow, that is so gorgeous.
I really do miss springtime...well, really I miss ANY season change (being in the desert and all)
But seeing all the beautiful changes is so breathtaking.
Great pics!!

Really beautiful!

And I didn't know that you didn't have to put anything in the crockpot with the chicken. Very cool! I may have to thaw out that chicken waiting to be cooked in my freezer! :D

We won't have Spring until mid-April...sigh...

But God is glorious, especially this time of year. Amen!
