The Garden

Scenic Sunday

The weather was perfect the weekend banabear and I went around Mounts Botanical Garden, Palm Beach's oldest and largest public garden.  There was nothing fancy about the place but it was serene, filled with lush greenery, a wide variety of tropical and subtropical plants, trees (some were fruit-bearing), and blooming flowers.   I wish my mother was there with us. She is an avid gardener so she would've enjoyed going around the garden.

All things bright and beautiful
All creatures great and small
All things wise and wonderful
The Lord God made them all.

Each little flower that opens
Each little bird that sings
He made their glowing colors
He made their tiny wings.

The cold wind in the winter
The pleasant summer sun
The ripe fruits in the garden
He made them everyone.

He gave us eyes to see them
And lips that we might tell
How great is God Almighty
Who has made all things well.
