Maintenance-Free Spring Flowers

Seasons Turn. . .

I love the way spring eventually breaks through at the end of winter. Spring in the Upstate of South Carolina is an especially beautiful time. Gorgeous pink and mauve colors are to be seen everywhere in the area, especially beautiful against a mild blue sky and newly green trees.

Not having the expertise (or time) to spend much time in the yard (“yard” = “garden” for non-US readers!), I am glad to have a few hardy plants that do their own thing regardless of my efforts. Water (mostly from the rain) and sunshine seem to do the trick as far as keeping them going is concerned.

Genesis 8:22 is a reminder of God’s faithfulness in the transformation of the seasons. “While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.”
