Here is a photo of a lovely hybrid tea rose growing in a garden in Escrick, near York.
Our hearts be pure from evil,
That we may see aright
The Lord in rays eternal
And, listening to his accents,
May hear so calm and plain
His own 'All hail,' and, hearing,
May raise the victor strain.
Splendid words for this first day of the week.
Have a Happy Sunday, and please offer a prayer for my Mother (Jean) - today is her 87th birthday.
