The Beauty of the Earth

It has been rainy and cold for what seems like a long time, but now we are in the full bloom of spring – one of Felicity’s favorite seasons! Lissie decided to head outside and smell the little lilac bush I planted outside my house three years ago. There are so many more flowers on it than when Felicity had visited it last.

 “Oh my!” Felicity exclaimed, “It’s so huge now!”

 “Yes,” I agree, “you won’t be able to stand on the ground like you did before.”

 “I love how the blossoms are kind of two toned colors; light purple and white.”

 “They’re really pretty, aren’t they?” I nod, “I remember being so disappointed when I first bought it because I expected it to be dark purple like the most common lilac bushes. The tag’s picture showed the dark purple, however the bush itself wasn’t. But I’ve grown to really love the flowers from this bush.”

 “Oh my goodness! They smell so good!” Felicity took a deep breath.

 “Their scent is so strong, I can smell them all the way down the alley!”

“Every time I view the wonders of God’s creation in the springtime I often think of this hymn;

‘For the beauty of the earth, for the beauty of the skies,

for the love, which from our birth, over and around us lies,

Lord of all, to Thee we raise, this our joyful hymn, our hymn of praise.'”

Praise the Lord for springtime and flowers!

Hi, I'm Heather (the human) and Jacky (the doll) wanted us to start a blog together about all the dolls in my room. I collect 18"dolls such as American Girl, Carpatina, Magic Attic, and Kidz n Cats. I love dressing them up and creating photo stories for you to enjoy! I'm a Christian and you will see a Christian influence in this blog because I can't help glorifying the Lord!

    The lilac is gorgeous… the bloom colors are very unique. We haven’t quite warmed up enough for lilacs yet… probably after this week. I got a little something for a doll for a Mother’s Day gift so stay tuned on that!

    Lilacs smell so good!!! Hyacinths too. And tulips. Too bad they don’t all bloom for very long. 😦

    Oooh! I love the smell of lilacs! I think I have like a billion lilac scented candles and perfume room sprays. It’s my absolute favourite scent. 🙂

  4. I love lilacs, but can never find them in our nursery. Felicity looks so lovely. That is my favorite dress of hers.
