Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

September 24, 2010 (legitimate enjoyment)

Just another native aster...
but one I grew in my little native garden.
The rabbits impeded the growth
of two of the three native species
of asters I tried to grow
but this one species...
the rabbits didn't bother with...
except one rabbit did build itself
a nice "nest-like" depression/hideout
under its canopy of vegetation.
There are literally hundreds
of blooms on this one plant.
I think I will plant more
of this species next year.
It is called "October Skies"... Aster oblongifolius.
The butterflies and particularly the bees love it.

"Let’s get rid of the inhuman philosophy
which only allows necessities.
Not only does it wrongly deprive us
of legitimate enjoyment of God’s generosity,
but it cannot be effected
without depriving man of all his senses,
reducing him to a block."
- John Calvin
