The Accidental Green Life

Wild Rosemary

When the apostle Paul wrote, "Be on guard. Stand firm in the faith. Be courageous. Be strong. And do everything with love," it's doubtful he intended any commentary on the state of garbage disposal in Corinth.

Congratulations on having your article published. I really appreciate solitude! Couldn't live without it! And, if we can appreciate nature, as well, what a plus.

Wanted to rest, but took time, first, to photograph the flowers, not only the long sprigs, but close ups of tiny, tiny flowers. God is so good to gift us with uplifting beauties that he made. I'm so glad that the whole land is under his ownership!
