The Isabella Plantations is a park within Richmond Park, one of the many Royal parks in London. It is a 45 minute walk from our house, and on this particular day, we had no idea what we were getting ourselves into! We have visited this park nearly every other week for the past few months, but this time we were greeted with riots of color like never before! It was so beautiful and so colorful, both Ladd and I were nearly in tears. In all honestly, I don’t know if I have ever been in a garden as break taking. We only had an hour, but ended up spending three and canceling our afternoon plans just to walk around. Around every corner was another shocking display of rainbow colors. I went back just two weeks after, and everything but a few rhododendrons were dead and gone.
“Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you—you of little faith!”
