This is one of my favorite bible verses… “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.”  Philippians 4:8…I choose to think on such things…

Whatever…. anything or everything, no matter what…is,

True…honest, just, ideal, essential, conformable to a standard…is,

Honorable… attesting to creditable conduct, consistent with an untarnished reputation…is,

Right…being in accordance with what is just, good, or proper ; suitable, appropriate, genuine, real…is,

Pure…containing nothing that does not properly belong…is,

Lovely…delightful for beauty, harmony, or grace…is,

Admirable…deserving the highest esteem…is excellent and praise worthy!

Day Lily…Daylilies are perennial plants. This name alludes to the attractive flowers which typically last no more than 24 hours. The flowers of most species open in early morning and wither during the following night, possibly replaced by another one on the same flower stalk the next day. Some species are night-blooming. Daylilies are not commonly used as cut flowers for formal flower arranging, yet they make good cut flowers otherwise as new flowers continue to open on cut stems over several days.

Iris…There are over 260 species of Iris’.  They are a perennial herb.  There name is taken from the Greek word meaning rainbow. Iris’ are found growing in a wide range of climates; from the riverbanks of Europe to North America.

Agapanthas…also know as Lily of the Nile, but it is not a lily.  This lovely flower mostly blooms in the summer…but it has graced our garden a little early this year.

  1. My favourite verse from the Bible also.Love the flowers

  2. Such beautiful photos, Jeanne! Thank you for sharing! Our day lilies are not yet coming out, although they are leafing. We had such a bad freeze after things had started budding and blooming that I’m not sure what will actually make it beyond leafing, but we’ve decided to leave that in God’s hands (like we have a choice! 😆 ) The one plant we are most worried about is our crepe myrtle. It is a very young one we just planted last year, and it ha begun to leaf out beautiful and then was solidly frozen, and all the leaves have died. Since it is a plant that does winter over, we’re hoping that it is not too young and tender to be able to releaf later on. We shall see!

    BTW, that is one of my favorite scriptures, too. As a matter of fact, the entire letter of Philippians is probably my favorite book in the Bible. Years ago I memorized the entire book, but I have lost much of it by memory, but I still “know” it all and read it frequently! So I will say, “Rejoice in the Lord, always! And again I will say, Rejoice!”

  3. Yes, yes…this is my favorite scripture. Philippians 4:6-8

  4. Your garden must be lovely!
