CMR Homes & Gardens: Flower Power
Updated: Sep 24
Who doesn't love flowers? Aside from growing vegetables, all the communities have beautiful flowers in their gardens. The sisters grow a wide range of flowers: Sunflowers- Hoa Hướng Dương Gardenia- Một loại Hoa Dành Dành Jasmine-Hoa Lài Mandevilla sanderi-Hoa Hồng Anh Four O’Clock Flower-Hoa Đồng Hồ Moss-rose Purslane - Hoa mười giờ Plumeria-Cây Hoa Sứ Chrysanthemum-Cây Hoa Cúc Begonia- Cây Hoa Thu Hải Đường Purple Heart Plant- Cây Hoa Thài Lài Tím Denver Daisy Black-eyed Susan
Roses - Double knockout roses and Miranda roses
We love to see the flowers start to bloom in the spring, providing splashes of colors. Besides enjoying their beauty outside, we also use the flowers for our chapels!
The waft of fragrant aromas and their simple beauty makes it easier to meditate on God and His goodness. "If even the smallest things are beyond your control, why are you anxious about the rest? Notice how the flowers grow. They do not toil or spin. But I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of them" (Luke 12:26-27).
Enjoy our pictures of the CMR communities and our flowers. A small digression: Some of our sisters love to pose, others we had to promise that God will reward them for their sacrifice in the next life!
