Beautiful Vanuatu

"The earth is the Lord's, and everything in it,
the world, and all who live in it.
Psalm 24:1, NIV

We wanted to share a few pictures to give you a glimpse of the tropical paradise that we call home!
Yes, these flowers are REAL and they grow like weeds in our yard!

Cows grazing in paradise.

We call these dainty little blooms - fairy lilies!

A bumper crop of guavas was turned into...
guava-ginger marmalade!

One of our favorites...lavender irises that bloom from February till April.
In our country, the fence posts sprout leaves and become trees!

Red hibiscuses....
and white hibiscuses, too!
This is an interesting one - red, frilly hibiscus (our name for it).

So much variety!
These orchids bloom just outside Sylvia's kitchen window. 

This tiger striped orchid has lasted for over a month!

We delight in the beauty that God has provided all around us!  We always have flowers blooming and there are usually different fruits waiting to be harvested.  We praise God for his bountiful provision!
