We are so blessed to be surrounded
by the colours, sounds and fragrance
of this glorious season.
Birds are singing and building their nests,
fox kits are scampering in the field,
and petals are bursting forth...
May you all be blessed
by nature's wonder and beauty.

From Our Garden
From Mary Ward...
It is ingratitude if one thinks that everything is chance
just because one is not aware that everything
can come from the hand of God;
for it is written, that no sparrow falls to the ground
without God knowing
and for me it is true
and is the easiest way to virtue if we accept everything
from the hand of God, be it ever so little.
Mary Ward 1585-1645
"I believe a leaf of grass
is no less than a journey-work of the stars."
"When the world is too much with me,
I head out to the magic forest to listen to the silence
which is not silent at all."
