Loaded

This is one gigantic rose bush.
It is two bushes, one on each end of the trellis. There is a bird bath in the middle. You can hardly see the bird bath. The birds are probably too scared to get in the bird bath.

We built the trellis for it a few years ago. The trellis is 6 feet tall. And you can see it is overtaking the trellis. I did trim it way back last summer, and that must have been a good thing. Because just in the last few weeks it has exploded. Exploded with new limbs and climbers, and exploded in pink roses everywhere.

As soon as I get some garden gloves on I will push and shove and twist the limbs and climbers back in the trellis. 
 

I think I  have a pink thumb with this one!!

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16, New International Version

That sums it up: God gave his only son to be born in Bethlehem, to live on this earth teaching and healing, to die on the cross for our sins and his body placed in the tomb, and He arose from death to live again, just for us, if we only believe.

So while we enjoy the Easter weekend with Easter Sunday Service, bunnies, eggs, and candy; let's praise God and thank Him for his Son.



P.S.  My kids still take pictures with the Easter Bunny. This is Jennifer at work at the hospital  posing with Bunny...
(sorry about blurry picture)
