My Weekend in Photos


Normally on Monday's I'm tied to the computer for DaySpring, checking in on posts and following up with correspondence. But today - TODAY - my email was off line, so I couldn't see but a handful of posts made to Facebook and waiting to be posted on Meet Me In The Meadow. I took advantage of it and went on a butterfly hunt for one of the posts later this week that needed a photo of a butterfly!

The storms that blew through Sunday afternoon, left it a bit cooler today... in the 80's instead of near 100. 

It was a little cooler out, but I knew I'd have to find a place with flowers blooming and water for it to be a successful hunt.

I went to Audubon State Park first. I saw several birds there, but no butterflies, and their flowers were really sad... even their manicured garden was only displaying ornamental flowers. :(  Disappointing.


One of the few flowers at Audubon State Park...








A lovely hibiscus in a pot at the Audubon Museum Gardens. 


Then I headed over to some gardens that I remembered going to with a friend a few years ago. I thought I remembered them being just off The Lloyd (the main highway through Evansville), but I wasn't exactly sure where. I tried to get Siri to help on my phone, but alas, she didn't know what I was talking about. I winged it and drove along, and ran into them on my own (well, with God's help!).


Bees and Butterflies were all over the gardens! Hope there are local bee keepers taking care of all the honey! 

The gardens are there on behalf of the Master Gardeners of SW Indiana! YAY!! Although I haven't completed my Master Gardener volunteer hours, I did manage to get the classes done last winter in Fayetteville. Sadly, this isn't the group I would get to join (it goes by county, and they aren't even in the same STATE as me!). Oh well. I'll check out Kentucky Master Gardener offerings another time.




Enjoy the photos, and I hope you had a great weekend!


Smelled so sweet! 

Lovely color!

Nom...nom..nom...

Taking flight!


Zinnias...

Color contrast was lovely!

My favorite butterfly that was hanging around today.

Lovely roses...several varieties there...some more fragrant than others...

Love the color and texture contrast!

Merry Christmas

I've been really busy, and not busy enough. My heart has been breaking in unexpected places the past few months...friends passing away unexpectedly, illnesses attacking loved ones, me missing kids and grandkids, and not wanting to feel nostalgic for all the sadness around my heart right now. I feel tender and raw...vulnerable. I cry at the drop of a hat, even over silly things, like TALKING about not watching a movie that would make me cry...not even watching that movie. Just talking about it. Oh dear! I did want to touch base though as we approach Christmas...all the sadness is making me draw even nearer to Jesus, because He is my hope (and the hope of the world). I've enjoyed my time of Advent, singing in the choir at church, baking cookies for friends and neighbors. It helps me to shift gears emotionally and mentally when I can change it up a bit and do something new. And in God's goodness, He is allowing us to do something new for Christmas! I'll share the detai

Romans 12, Parts 2 and 3: Balanced and Beautiful in Christ

The new posts that I wrote for Balanced and Beautiful in Christ are now live on their Facebook page, and here on my new blog site (subscribe there so you don't miss a thing!). It's been a crazy few weeks (ok...are we going on several months now??) but I'm grateful that God had me write (and schedule) these several weeks ago. I pray that the words bless you and draw you closer to Himself.  Blessings, marina
