Shabbat shalom everyone around the world!
My beloved spoke, and said to me: “Rise up, my love, my fair one, And come away. For lo, the winter is past, The rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth; The time of singing has come, And the voice of the turtledove Is heard in our land. The fig tree puts forth her green figs, And the vines with the tender grapes Give a good smell. Rise up, my love, my fair one, And come away! (Song of Solomon 2:10–13)
Please enjoy these smiling faces declaring YHVH’s glory from Natan’s personal Garden of Eden…
May these photos of flowers from my garden brighten you Shabbat day! Praise YHVH Elohim the Creator for the beauty of his creation, which is a love-gift to us. As he has made this earth beautiful for our enjoyment and blessing, may we be a river of life to those around us as we brighten their days with YHVH’s love and beauty!

What’s a spring garden without a daffodil?
Heal-all is a wild edible and medicinal plant.
Dandelion—even the flowering weeds are gorgeous. One man’s weed is another man’s ornamental flower.
To some people, marsh marigold is a noxious weed, but if planted in the right spot, it makes a wonderful addition to the garden. This teaches us that each person (who in YHVH’s sight is like a flower) if planted in the right place can become a blessing to YHVH’s creation. Each person has his own place to grow and bloom in YHVH’s kingdom.
