Wild Things Growing Around Me

Whenever I look out of my kitchen window in the mornings, I see the beauty in all of the trees and wild flowers which naturally grow on their own. I have not had to plant any flowers in my yard for as long as I have lived in my house. God has provided them for me. I can move them from one place to the other in my yard if I choose to. Beauty and wild things are all around me. Now that everything has bloomed and sprouted, my back yard is so beautiful and green. There’s a family of different birds that lives in my hedge bush. I have seen them grow from little birds to full grown birds. I have seen the baby squirrels run and play testing their abilities jumping and walking on branches way up high. I enjoy listening to them making their chatter talking to one another. I enjoy listening to the birds sing their sweet songs of nature. Today the wind blew through the trees and it was very refreshing. The smell of it smelled of new beginnings in life to me. It signified new birth. I enjoyed looking at the ladybugs resting on the lower flowering leaves. I watched the bees as they went from flower to flower gathering nectar. It was a beautiful day today, and I hope that tomorrow will be the same. I pray God will have mercy and awaken me so I can see it. It was not as hot as usual; it was just right. For a while the mosquitos were fine, but then they started biting, so we went in the house. Everything is so lush and green, but Summer is on the way; it is just right around the corner. I hope it doesn’t be so hot this year like it was last year. Even in the heat, wild things grow. We grow too. We grow to appreciate what we have and thank God for it. Until next time, deuces.
