Forsythia Leaves

Saturday, November 19, 2011

 



My dear friend, Jeannie came over the other day and wanted to see my forsythia bush. I told her that it had grown so much since I last pruned it a few months back that it followed me into my front door when I was talking on my cell with her one night. She laughed and said she had to come and see this amazing bush.

Well once she and I finished this bush, she whacked and I stacked, it was just a fraction of the size it once was. As I stacked the cut limbs in the wood pile out back, I saw one tiny limb with some pretty variegated leaves and rescued just it from the pile. I placed it in a vase and found out the vase had not been waterproofed so I had a puddle and two fallen leaves. I took the two leaves and placed them on a beveled mirror. I examined the colors blended from a light lime green to a bright purple...Isn't God amazing? The leaves were as pretty as the flowers once were on these bushes! BTW I did get up the puddle.:-)

They ARE pretty. I wonder sometimes if I take enough time out to notice all the beauty God's blessed me with. My kids, my family, my home, my garden, my life and friends. I think I should stop and take more time out to see and appreciate all these simple things He's shown me in nature - things which are a small reflection of Himself.

How pretty, the curve of the leaf made a great reflection. I love those colors. I have never noticed the leaves of the forsythia this time of the year.

You know sometimes I get carried away with whacking. My SO looks as if he has a heart attack every time.

It's amazing the things we can find out , just by getting involved in life.

It's pretty!
