Here is a Milkweed seed pod that still has some seeds in March.

This plant attracts butterflies and is sold at nature stores. We saw these in a grassland area growing wild.

Psalm 125:2 "As the mountains surround Jerusalem,
So the Lord surrounds His people
From this time forth and forever."

Warm winter has Lilac starting to grow. But they were leafing out the 7th of March last year.

Here are some old seed pods.

It is good to see signs of spring. Life is starting anew. Let us learn from nature to respond to the Lord when we sense His warmth.

Ginko Tree

I took some photos of a Ginko tree. The stems are stubby giving it a distinct look in the winter.

Like the Ginko tree that has an ancient past. Abraham lived to be 175 years old. Gen. 25:7. Many people think Abraham only had 2 sons. Gen 25:1,2 shows that Abraham had 6 more sons with another wife after Sarah died.
