The voice of the Lord flashes forth flames of fire.
The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness;
the Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.
The voice of the Lord makes the deer give birth
and strips the forests bare,
and in his temple all cry, “Glory!”
This is a Japanese Andromeda (pieris japonica) growing in my backyard. I didn't plant it, the family that lived here before us did. I was just tickled to find it blooming in my backyard the first spring. When I looked it up I was pleased to discover we share the same name! It is an evergreen shrub that likes partial shade and blooms in early spring. Some people call it "Lily of the Valley" shrub.
