“The works of the LORD are great,

sought out of all them that have pleasure therein.

His work is honourable and glorious:

and His righteousness endureth forever.”

Psalm 111: 2, 3.

Many of these photos are of flowers, partly because I live in a wet, tropical place which has many wonderful flowers, partly because horticulture is my profession, and partly because some of the photos show the beautiful order and symmetry in nature. See also the “Divine Designs God’s Creation” page.

but also on trees, and in the flowers and clouds and stars”

Dietes bicolor, South African Iris.

Dietes vegeta.

Dietes grandiflora.

Dietes grandiflora, South African Iris. These plants are popular in Australia in gardening and roadside plantings because they flower repeatedly and are tough and adaptable regarding sun, shade and soil type. Interestingly, the Dietes genus is confined to South Africa, with the single exception of Dietes robinsoniana, which has a disjunct distribution in Lord Howe Island, off the east coast of Australia! D. robinsoniana is a larger plant with plain white flowers. The closely related genus, Moraea, has many beautiful flowers.

  1. Hola! I’ve been following your website for some time now and finally got the bravery to go ahead and give you a shout out from Humble Texas!
    Just wanted to tell you keep up the excellent job!

    Fantastic site , thank you for sharing these images.
    It never ceases to amaze me ,how people can miss the miniscule but important details that the Creator has put there for a purpose, maybe to put the smartest man on earth to shame, for no one can reproduce what “He ,” has made.

  3. I think that what you posted was actually very logical. However, consider this, what if you were to write a awesome post title? I am not saying your information isn’t good., however suppose you added a title to maybe get people’s attention? I mean Photos 1 | Tracts4free is a little boring. You ought to look at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create news headlines to grab viewers to open the links. You might add a video or a picture or two to get readers interested about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it would bring your posts a little bit more interesting.
