  1. Deb, your collection of purple flowers is delightful! The salvia looks so much like lavender, does it have a scent? Thank you for ID-ing the types of flowers (so many folks don’t).

    1. Thank you! I’m not sure, they were located right next to lavender plants.

      1. You’re welcome. I had to show the photo of the church you posted last month, to my hubby. He and his brother went there for a few years about 20 years ago. Small world 🌎

        1. I attended the church until around 1986 when I married and moved to Corona, California. Who was the Pastor at the time he & his brother attended? You’re right it is a small world after all.

        3. When I attended Pastor Dr. Tim F, LaHaye was the Senior pastor. Pastor Jeremiah Riffe was the Youth Pastor. I know they were both involve with other ministries by the 2,000’s. It is still amazing to have a small connection years later.
