What is considered a weed, worth little in our flower gardens, was first bright yellow, then closed up again before reopening to this majestic perfection. Look closely. Each blossom is perfectly white, artistically formed, like a magic wand, ready...

Last year we were fortunate enough to have nests at opposite ends of the garden. However, we were rather concerned that they might not chose to build their nests here this year as our neighbours have a cat. Cats and birds do not mix! So I was...
Birds in a hedge.
I've known for some time that in Christian art they are symbols of resurrection, a little like the phoenix. There's a beautiful mosaic of a peacock at Westminster Cathedral, and according to the radio programme the peacock features in Byzantine art...
