Little But Lovely

I'm sure some of you know the name of this little flower but I don't. However, it has brought me much joy during the past few months and I have been drawn to it many times, just admiring its perfect beauty.  Since I could not decide which photos were my favorites I decided to post several. I played around a bit, editing a couple of them but really prefer them in their natural setting.

I'm thinking that maybe, just maybe, this next one might be my favorite. Which one would YOU pick?

So simple yet so lovely. Isn't that just like so many of His creations?

Today after I began this post I came across a sermon entitled "Little, But Lovely". How appropriate, I thought. So I would like to copy a couple lines from that, just a little something to complete this collection of pictures of the little, but lovely flower.

  “Fear not, little flock, it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.”  (Luke 12:32)

 But far surpassing woman’s love, outvying all maternal instincts, our Savior’s strong affection can no rival know. In accents mild, he seems to say,  Never mind how few you are, or how despised; your feebleness gives you a warmer place in my heart, and makes me press you more closely to my bosom. Hush, hush; be still; fear not, little flock.  -C.H.Spurgeon


  1. It looks like oxalis to me. I like your second last photo best.

    Thanks for leaving a comment on my agapanthus post. Apparently it's native to South Africa. Seems these and jacarandas grow well in our part of Australia as well as Brazil and S. Africa.

  2. Your photos are all gorgeous. I think I like the last one the best! Thank you so much for the reminder to enjoy the "little" lovelies of God's creation.

  3. I just found your blog today. Love love love these photos. Absolutely gorgeous. I feel like I just took a stroll through a lovely garden and it left me thanking the Lord for His creativity. He is so good, even in the small things
