Once upon a time in my garden in England....

Originally uploaded by sjmcdowell
I wanted to share with you my friends a picture I took a few years ago when I lived in England. I had a green house and these lovely lillies would hibernate every winter and come spring they would start sprouting up through the soil in their pots and welcome Spring time back again.
I would sit there on my bench with comfy pillows and read a book,
or just sit and soak up the peacefulness in my little oasis that I had created for myself.

Delight in the day the Lord has given you!!



  1. A beautiful picture and such a nice memory!
