Tiree’s Beautiful Bounty

What beauty lies on our own doorstep.
Well not quite literally!
Rather, just outside our door.

Our garden is just a small patch.
More a nature reserve than a formal garden.
Yet, what amazing beauty lies within its boundaries.

It is a colourful world.
In many ways it is best appreciated on my knees.
And while there on my knees to praise God the Creator.

The closer you look the more you discover.
The variety in our small patch is just staggering.

The Bible declares,
“The grass withers and the flowers fall,
but the word of our God endures forever.”

Just beyond our small patch is the Scarinish headland.
There on the headland clearly visible from our garden – two herons.

Two herons, one standing, the other sitting low.

On our doorstep is Tiree’s beautiful bounty.
This is ‘Life on Tiree’.
