Flowers around the Monastery

Although the weather is hot and humid the flowers are blooming fast and furious this summer. We enjoy walking around the gardens and sharing in the beauty that our good and gracious God provides for us with the help of our gardeners, Sisters Barbara, Etta, Karen and Nelia. Sister Florence dabbles in it a little bit and lets everyone know her contributions. No humility on her part.
Dabble according to Webster's Dictionary means to work or involve oneself without serious effort. This is true for Sister Florence.
