Have you visited any bluebell woods in Perthshire? In the month of May many of its ancient woodland glades have a hypnotic enchantment. In fact it's a frothy sea surf arising from under the tree canopy. Everywhere you turn there’s a seamless carpet of azure blue Scottish wildflowers - Hyacinthoides non-scripta.
Ancient Bluebell Woods Perthshire
Doth not all nature around me praise God?
If I were silent, I should be an exception to the universe. Doth not the thunder praise Him as it rolls like drums in the march of the God of armies? Do not the mountains praise Him when the woods upon their summits wave in adoration? Doth not the lightning write His name in letters of fire? Hath not the whole earth a voice?
And shall I, can I, silent be?
~ Charles Spurgeon
God writes the Gospel not in the Bible alone, but also on trees, and in the flowers and clouds and stars.
~ Martin Luther
This is one of many ancient bluebell woods Perthshire. This one is at Dalcrue. As you walk along the path you can hear the sound of the river below and the bird song in the branches above. It's so idyllic! So many have walked this paths for generations. A path that straddles a dramatic slope down to the river. Moreover it's a path that has many obstacles as old birch tree trunks like across it and tree roots pierce its base.
I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in.
~ George Washington Carver
