Bits and Pieces


Here are just a few little bits and pieces from my little corner of the world:


Remember this Century Plant? I promised to keep an eye on it so that we could see what new and wonderful things it would do.



This is what it looked like today.












I will continue to monitor it's progress and report in as soon as there are any further developments. :-)

The next two pictures are especially for Dawn. This is my "gentle" little hummingbird who perches on the feeder and drinks deeply. Such a sweet picture of peace and tranqulity.










However....he must have seen me spying on him, and he flew up to the window to demonstrate his displeasure. I told you they were feisty!!





This is a song from our Easter program. It was written by our music minister' s wife and seventeen year old son.


He Has Overcome - Easter 2010 from Community Bible Church on Vimeo.


And a word that blessed:
"The surest method of arriving at a knowledge of God's eternal purposes about us is to be found in the right use of the present moment. God's will does not come to us in the whole, but in fragments, and generally in small fragments. It is our business to piece it together, and to live it into one orderly vocation."
F.W. Faber (1815-1863)

Have a blessed weekend,
Linda

Linda,
I'd never heard of the century plant until we saw them on a trip to Arizona . Nature never ceases to amaze me. The hummingbirds are a wonder too! I should get a feeder, we noticed a few around in the past few years as our area gets more lush and less new suburbia.

Love the quote from Faber... off to google him.

Have a blessed Sunday.

Beautiful pics! Did you lose any plants over the winter? I lost some but not many. I am currently reading Hummingbirds of Texas written by Clifford E Shackelford, Madge M Lindsay and C. Mark Klym. Have a blessed Sabbath.

Impressed with your hummingbird--watch that he doesn't start pulling together a few friends. And I'd suggest you avoid watching Hitchcock's "The Birds"!

Also, that song was so uplifting--I'll bet it was great live on Easter morning!

I love that feisty little bird! I still get a joy out of the pix I took last summer of all the hummers that day when we went on that picnic in the hills.

The century plant is amazing - I've never seen one before.

I think I'm going to have to post the pictures of "before and after" of our irises - we had some hail today. Kinda sad!
