Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2021-133: Wildflower Watch: Focusing on Yellow

There are all kinds of yellow wild flowers in Texas.  They seem to come up early, stay late and turn up when unexpected.  Identifying them is not on my front burner but I noticed something today.  Some of those ubiquitous yellow flowers seems to be Dandelions.  I only know this because I am seeing the distinctive seed pod appear.

I also am claiming to identify Brown-Eyed Susans.  They have been around before but I had to look for a different picture than the one I had.  They are doing well on our hill.

I also noticed that over night Indian Blankets have bloomed.  I swear there were none yesterday but today I saw them in several yards.  Eventually I expected to see them on my property.

I am wondering if we are going to get more blue bonnets later in the year.  The ones that came up in my yard are already forming their pods.  They may dry out and spread in time to give a second crop.  We shall see.

  1. I've been known to mow around weeds so they'll seed.

    1. Last year I waited for the blue bonnets to go to pods and dry out but, unless their is a late bloom coming, the cold defeated my great planning. It is also a great excuse for putting off mowing the yard.

      Grace and peace
