In some parishes people collect greenery from the local area on Palm Sunday. When we used to go to church on Palm Sunday we used to see families with such green branches. That is a beautiful way of celebrating the entrance of Christ into Jerusalem...

You know how it is, you meet someone with the same interests as you and it sparks off wonderful conversations and sometimes, deep friendships. As I've grown older though, I've learned to accept that it is not so much the things in common which will...
Books in a pile including Alice in Wonderland and The Fellowship of the Ring by J R R Tolkien
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...

I'm up early to do my readings. I meditate using a form of centering prayer. And I write a letter to Mother God to connect with loving God. Every day at the park I meditate on some aspect of the park: 1. The shade trees are like the nurturing and...

My garden is a riot of colour at present. There is a mass of bloom on the golden forsythia bushes, whilst alongside the acid yellow flowers on the mahonia shrub are trying to out-do their exuberant neighbour. In the nearby border and under the...
A garden with different coloured types of flowers
I was very disappointed. I tried random different flavours, but they were not as good as raspberry. There was no icecream place we have not searched, and I wasn't satisfied with anything I tried, as I was comparing it with my memory of raspberry...
Raspberry Icecream
They have never been any trouble and we get on quite well with them. However, on Thursday last week a marquee was erected in their garden. Oh joy! A teenager’s party! That will be noisy and will probably go on all night! No sleep this weekend then,...
