Scattered surprises

I choose flower seeds
in late winter months
images of blooms
bringing life
to grey, cold, prairie reality

My beloved digs in
scatters the promises
when the ground finally softens
the risk of frost

Things look harsh
barren, empty
faith in what is to come
and we add greenhouse plants

Our God, however
is faithful
His promises true
these mid-summer days
a colour riot
of surprise and delight

You know with all your heart and soul that not one of all the good promises the LORD your God gave you has failed. Every promise has been fulfilled; not one has failed. Joshua 23:14b NIV

Its an absolute pleasure to see the plants growing from beneath the soil and the flowering. I remember a plant which used to grow only in summer and then flowers. After summer, it decays and vanishes. The roots remains inside the soil and same time again in summer, it grows again. Well, wish that you get more colorful flowers from those plants. :)
