Rose of Sharon


“I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys

As the lily among thorns, so is my love…”

I'm a novelist, poet, and artist. I love books, nature, art, and gardening. I'm a rock hound and there's a photo of me with a cool fossil rock on my about page, I take a lot of nature pictures. The background here is one of mine. Unfortunately I recently lost my wonderful husband, but I'm grateful to have the blessing of two beautiful sons. elizabethmeltonparsons.wordpress.com is © Elizabeth Melton Parsons 2007-2018.

  1. All the many hours you tend to your garden have certainly been paying off….God is definitely working alongside you!!


  2. I love these photos. They are just beautiful.


  3. We used to call these Ash flowers – because the stamen bit crumbles to ash when they are on their way out.
