Today we visit the Isle of Islay. This photo of the High School gives a strong hint of what else goes on in this island!
Then God said, "Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds." And it was so. The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the third day. (Genesis 1.11-13)
I am much enjoying planning my new garden, and am busy browsing seed catalogues for ideas. It has been said that Lent is about growing, Easter is about flowering, and Pentecost is about fruiting. I do like this image! In order for plants to grow, they need pruning and fertilising. During Lent we cut some unnecessary things away, and take advantage of all the growth food that the Church offers. My we blossom profusely at Easter and fruit well at Pentecost!
