White church and a splash of color

The past couple weeks I've had the good fortune of driving by this local church, to and from work. Yesterday I finished up the job so on the way home I finally stopped to take a few pictures.







I swear, next year I'm growing Zinnia's in my garden!



I like the Bumble. He stopped by for just a second but I caught him!









I'll be linking up with Mary's Little Red House a little later on today for Mosaic Monday!

You are fortunate that you can drive by such beauty! Thanks for sharing it so that I can enjoy it through your amazing photos! We used to be pastor and wife at a tiny church up on the hill in Montgomery, MA - years and years ago! Another picturesque place - full of great memories for us!

AWESOME photos!! I passed by a little church earlier this week too but was in a hurry so couldn't stop, but it was nowhere near as lovely as the church in your photos!

Beautiful photos Sharon. I love white churches. Your photos remind me of the church in our hometown. It's called Marie Baptist Church and my grandfather helped build it and it's where my Mom spent her Sundays. The original church is still there they've just built onto it. It's a beautiful white church similar to this one. I can't wait till we go back home and visit. I'll be sure to get some photos. Happy Sunday and have a wonderful week. Cindy

Spectacular shots, Sharon! I want to go to that church someday! Zinnias are one of my favorite flowers. I love to pick them and put them in a pretty tall vase.

Lovely church and zinnias. Zinnias remind me of my Granny ... colorful, old fashioned and tough!!!! Beautiful images and so nice you can see them everyday.

I adore these iconic images of New England and I also appreciate churches where someone takes an interest in the church's landscaping. It speaks volumes.

Country Girl said...

You've got an eye for a good photo, my friend. Love the white against the blue with the exciting splashes of late summer color!!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I agree-- those zinnias are so pretty and I think I'd love to grow some in my garden next summer. Wonderful church. Happy MM!

Claudia@DipityRoad said...

The church and the zenias are stunning...but my fav is the bumble bee stopping to do its business.

Very nice.

And what a beautiful day it must have been - the sky is glorious!

Pondside said...

I think that anyone who has ever been to New England would recognize a church such as this. What a beautiful structure, against the blue sky.
Like you, I'm going to grow zinnias next year too. What was I thinking, leaving them out this year?

Jayne said...

So beautiful Sharon! My mom and dad always have a fence line full of zinnias and they are always so cheerful.

Just today at lunch, a co-worker and I walked by a local business with a bunch of colorful zinnias out front. I too confirmed to myself (and my co-worker) that it is my intention to grow them in my garden next year.
