Scripture reference;

And they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God amongst the trees of the garden.

And the Lord God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?” Genesis 3:8-9 KJV

I like to keep my eye out for plants that bloom in the shade, because I have a lot of shade on my property. From what I have read they like moist humus rich soil and shade or partial shade. They get to be 2-3 feet tall and wide, are supposed to be easy to grow, and have an exotic look to them sort of like orchids.

I know that it was a solemn occasion when Adam and Eve hid from the Lord, but I like to think of the Lord walking among the trees in shady places in the cool of the day. I sometimes think about that when I am in my shade garden.

 

“Toad Lilies” by Theresa Anne Moore

Scent of earth and pine

Softly intertwine.

The hosta and the fern

 Grow without concern.

A bench of grey cast stone

Provide for time alone.

Shafts of light on ground

Toad lilies hear a sound

I think I hear it, too

It’s time to be with you.

 

This post was submitted as part of the A to Z Challenge, where participants agree to post an article that corresponds to each letter of the alphabet and publish an article every day during the month of April (except Sundays).

Here at Serenaded Softly, my theme for the month is Blossoming Verses, where I’ll share a picture of something in bloom, a passage of scripture, and a poem.

    I’m not familiar with this flower but it’s lovely. I have a lot of shade too, and I find flowers that bloom in the shade are the most enchanting.
