As Hot as June

 

Continuing our marathon picture posting period, this time at our local garden centre. It was a March day, as hot as June, and time to pick some garden blooms. With its friendly tea shop, and pleasing atmosphere, our time in the see through nursery was well-spent.

As you can see, while Amanda was busy, choosing flowers, I was relaxed, sampling tea.

So, until next time, I will raise my cup and say a hearty cheers to all our readers.

 

Those whose eyes are open do not need to go to a church and look at a picture or statue of the Lord. In the eyes of every infant, in the smile of every innocent child, they receive the blessing of Christ.

Greetings dear readers. A few days ago, Amanda and Luke went to Hanbury Hall, where they took these pics for us. Hanbury Hall is a stately home situated somewhere in Worcestershire, (pronounced ‘wustersher’,) and is the property of our National Trust. It is also open to the public all year round.

Such ‘wealth’ on show, yet sorrow cannot be bought off. The story goes that the former owner of the house died tragically, leaving no heirs. But, would one not be inclined to imagine that to live in such a house would be paradise? I think not, certain as I am that stateliness never cancelled karma.

Being housebound, I don’t get to experience these places any more, and so I am immeasurably grateful that my family enjoy going out with their cameras to capture these images for me.  And, I, in return, like to share them with you. I hope you like them.

I will post the pics from the inside of the house next time, which (all being well,) will be soon.  My body hasn’t  fared comfortably this year so far, and any healing wishes you send will be very gratefully received.

So, with my sincerest thanks to all my fellows, and followers, ’til next time, peace, and namaste from Amras.
