We really love all the activity to be found in the flower bed. Butterflies are found in abundance, as are ladybugs and honeybees, which are actually a favorite of mine. (Did you know the name "Melissa" means honeybee? And one of our affectionate nicknames for Caitlyn is "Caitybug", to rhyme with "Ladybug".) The bold array of colors at the front of our bed just mesmerize me; the sight of them brings such joy to my heavy heart.
Honestly, at this time, some of the most vibrant flowers in our yard can actually be found in Darren's cactus garden. It is such a treat to see them in bloom, especially those that only flower for a day or two. Such exquisite beauty--extinguished, in my opinion, much too soon.
To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven.(Ecclesiastes 3:1)
