Welcome to my Blog

Hello Everyone!

This is my first time ever creating a blog. I'm so excited about the opportunity to share some encouragement . Could anyone use some of that? I sure could! I find that when I encourage someone, I get encouraged. Funny how that works! I believe that is the way God intended it to be.

You may be wondering, who is this "Plant Lady"? Well, I'll tell you a little about myself. I am a happily married lady in North Carolina who really loves gardening. When I speak of "gardening," I should say "farming," because it really is! We have a small farm and the "garden" part is about one acre! I know! I know! You are probably asking, why so much? Well, I enjoy sharing the "blessings" God provides. My garden consists mainly of vegetables,with some blueberries, plums, and of course those wonderful herbs. I have recently developed a "love" of growing gourds. They are the most wonderful plants - so useful!


Gardening gives me time to "ponder" God's many blessings. His Word is full of references to agriculture and Jesus used farming illustrations in much of His teaching. He has given me some lessons as well. Next time, I'll share some of those with you!

God loves each of us and He will share those lessons with you if you ask Him.

Be Encouraged!
Plant Lady

Christel and Mary,

Thank you both for visiting my new blog! I hope you will find encouragement here with the things God lays on my heart. He is so wonderful!

Mary, the picture was taken at the North Carolina Arboretum in Asheville. My husband and I also tried to photograph some beautiful hummingbirds, but we could never get them into focus. They are truly some of God's most amazing creatures.

Have a wonderful weekend!
Hope to hear from you all again soon.

God Bless!
Plant Lady
