Autumn Beauty

Matthew 6:28-29 ~ And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.

Letting my herb garden fill up with various wildflowers and helianthus this year has brought me great joy. I love the life and color represented against the backdrop of the original homestead that was built in the late 1800's. Sunflowers are one of my favorite flowers to grow. These particular ones have small blooms but are very prolific. 

One year I grew giant sunflowers and harvested the seeds to plant for the next year. The herb garden was surrounded by them and it was beautiful. Regretfully, I don't have a photo except for this one taken 11 years ago of my son holding a bloom that measured 14" across!

I hope you are enjoying the beauty of Autumn and rejoicing in the Lord that He gave us such beauty to gaze upon!
