The Temple is nearing Phase 2 reopening, which seems to feel more like closed than being open, but progress is good. This year has been an interesting one and we all keep wondering what the future holds for life and getting back to normal. We don't know what next year, and the year after that will be like, but it is nice to be around things here at the grounds that continue to operate as normal. The plants and flowers continue to bloom, as long as there is sun, water and soil to grow in. The challenges of this year may be just be beginning or we may be on the rebound after the tidal wave, but the garden stays constant and unchanged. This pandemic has created a few "silver linings" for us all-- it has forced us to wander out in nature and enjoy this beautiful earth a little more. Due to countless cancellations and closures to activities around the world. Another reminder that God is constant, a Creator of life, and all things in this beautiful earth. There is so much to explore and learn in this life. So get outside in nature, find a garden or plant one yourself and escape to something that remains constant and unfettered by the pandemic!
Here are some pictures of the gardens here at the temple this summer, Enjoy!
Thank you for sharing these beautiful photos.
I love the beautiful colors the flowers bring to the Temple in the Summer time! It makes the Temple even more beautiful than it already is! Thank you for sharing these pictures!
It was kind of you to take the time to take and post these beautiful pictures of the Temple and grounds. You always do a great job in making the grounds so nice for all to enjoy. Our Heavenly Father did create a beautiful world for us to enjoy. Thank you again
As I enter the temple I take photos of all the beautiful grounds and I send them to family that have been shut in. They must be missing the plants as much as I do. Thank you so much for posting these. Hard work pays off and it's so lovely!
Just looking at these pictures brings me a feeling of peace, particularly the ones by the temple entrance. They bring to mind the countless times I have passed by the beautiful flowers that prepare me for entering the sacred temple. Thank you so much for sharing. We pray in earnest for the temple to resume normal activity.
Thank you for sharing these beautiful pictures. Our Temple experience surely includes noticing the beautiful gardens and landscaping, and marveling at the constant growth, change and order that exists. I often attribute some of the particular splendor of the plants, trees and grasses to the sacred ground and nourished soil of the Temple. But we also notice, and extend thanks to all who continually work hard to keep the outside areas in the best of care and order. We pray for the Temple Presidency and for the day we will be able to return and continue the sacred work within the walls of the Temple.
