I’m often amazed at the beauty with which God has graced this world, and the desire that people have to cultivate and appreciate that beauty. Surely Romans 1:20 is self-evidently true:
For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualitiesâ€”his eternal power and divine natureâ€”have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.
Today was a glorious day; after I finished work, I just had to be outside. I lay on my back in the yard, looking up at the sky, breathless at the blue and gold of this bright summer evening.
When Kathy returned home from her Lake Day, I grabbed her camera and strolled down the street, snapping pictures of the flowers that my neighbors are growing. David and Sarah came along to keep me company — the pictures in the slideshow below represent just the flowers I could easily find without trespassing.
Truth be told, many of the flowers have already bloomed and faded … late May is actually a better time to be a flower photo-hound, at least in western Washington.
(OK, I’ll admit it, this whole post was just an excuse to try out some new slideshow software. I had to shrink the pictures down to a pretty low resolution so the slideshow would work — you’ll have to take my word for it that some of the photos were actually quite stunning.)
