Bible Verse Link-up

Linking up with Ute for this month's Bible Verse Photography Challenge:

"My beloved speaks and says to me: 'Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away; for now the winter is past, the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth; the time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land.'" Song of Solomon 2:10-12

First, a choral arrangement based on that verse (there's not a video, just click play and listen while you read):



Not the best choir (oh, the sadly lacking tenors...), but I don't feel like digging out my old recording from my professional days (I say professional solely because I got paid to sing, but I'll be honest - it was just a church gig :P).  But such a beautiful arrangement!

Here's my photographic take on the verse:


I took this a couple of weeks ago when it looked like, once and for all, the winter was past!  We moved into our new house in February, having no idea whether anything had ever been planted in the little garden plots out back.  When the bulbs started blooming and we found out we had inherited a lovely garden full of daffodils, tulips, bluebells, and who knows what else, it was such a wonderful gift and surprise! 

Go check out more takes on the verse, and link-up your take!
