Backyard beauty

My heart leaps with joy as each new flower appears in my yard. I wish I could package the gorgeous fragrance as well. The beauty literally makes my heart go pitter-patter.

I don't have the words to express myself, but luckily Helen Steiner Rice does, so I'll let her supply the words and I'll supply the pictures.
give us eyes to see
the beauty
of the spring
And to behold
Your majesty
in every living thing,
And may we see
in lacy leaves
and every
budding flower
The hand that rules
the universe
with gentleness
and power.
