Snowfall in the Promise Gardens

The snow has fallen and created beautiful landscapes in the Promise Gardens. It’s beauty takes our breath away but like all horticulture and garden lovers, the heavy wet snow has already taken its toll this early in season. Last night in below freezing temps we had to upright some of the evergreen trees and add additional support. Some of the older large trees will need to come down. Snow on the trees is beautiful but also damaging. We are enjoying capturing the beauty while it lasts. The birds however are delighted to munch on the berries so brightly showing on the white snow!

If you have snow take a walk but watch out for falling snow, branches and trees! See more of our snow images at our JayJacy blog.

The Artist of the Garden

The artist is called and gifted by God — who loves all kinds of art; who maintains high aesthetic standards for goodness, truth, and beauty; and whose glory is art’s highest goal. We accept these principles beause they are biblical, and also because they are true to God’s character. What we believe about art is based on what we believe about God.

Art is what it is because God is who He is.”

_Philip G. Ryken, “Art for God’s Sake”
