Spiraea, grape hyacinths and ivy

Hast thou not known? Hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of His understanding. He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increases strength. Even the youths will faint and be weary, and the young men will utterly fall: But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they will run, and not be weary; and they shall walk , and not faint.

Isaiah 40: 28 – 31
Grape hyacinths, spiraea and ivy.
A sprig of spiraea vanhouttei flowers.
They grow as showy arching flowers on a vase – shaped, deciduous shrub in spring and summer.  It grows from 5 to 8 feet tall.
The bowl they are in is hand painted Poole pottery. The company went into administration in December 2006 and came out of administration 10 February 2007and was under the control of Lifestyle Group Ltd, which owns Royal Stafford Tableware. All online Poole Pottery items are made in Stoke-on- Trent.
A metal sculpture of Tweety Carpenter with the grape hyacinths in our garden. A reminder of our hand reared African Hoopoe. Our story is in my post:

A Memory of a very special African Hoopoe.

A bird does not sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.

Maya Angelou

No bird soars too high if he soars with his own wings.

  1. Lovely post. All of it – the verse, the Maya Angelou’s quote, the little bird sculpture, the pottery, flowers and story… 🥰
