Green Thumb Sunday 11-18

Join Green Thumb Sunday

It's getting harder to find plants that are blooming outside. Next week I'll probably have to photograph something inside. This Alyssum is hanging on though.

My 'find of the day' was this lone 'Mum blossom. I was very surprised since the rest of the plant is done blooming and the cold weather these past few weeks should have discouraged any blooms. I was reminded of these verses from Matthew chapter 6, verses 27-29: "And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life? And why are you worried about clothing? observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, yet I say to you not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these."(NASB) I realized that if God cares enough to give this little plant a single blossom, then how much more He must care for me!

Happy Green Thumb Sunday!

Sometimes I love alyssum and sometimes I hate them. I hate them because they can act like a weed, coming up any old place they wish and flourishing in that place and I love them for the same reason.

Alyssum is a hardy plant and will self seed itself for next year. I don't have any blooms outside. Thank goodness my Christmas Cactus was blooming inside. I see you like gardening and crafting too. I've visited both of your blogs.

chigiy: So far we haven't had any trouble with it coming up in unwanted places, so we still like it ;)

crafty gardener: I love plants that self seed. Especially ones as pretty as Alyssum. We also have a pink one, but I couldn't get a good picture of it. Thanks for visiting my craft blog!
