A ‘Flickr’ of Spring: Images of America in Bloom

By Shannon Henderson Published on April 5, 2018

Even though the Weather Channel is calling for “three more chances of snow across the U.S.,” we can still celebrate the fact so much of the nation is in bloom. 

Flikr is rich with images of this year’s visual bounty. We’ve chosen some of the best to offer a “Flickr’ of Spring 2018. Scrolling through these images, it’s hard not to hear the words of Jesus:

 “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.” (Luke 12:27)

Enjoy the splendor!
