Bright As A Button

What a great name! These two pics were taken at Queens Park in Invercargill in the modern rose garden and my title for this post is the real name of the rose. Southland, New Zealand; 25 February. ~The New Zealand Rose Society has a page about it at their website: December – Bright as a Button and it’s worth a look if you’re interested in the history of this type of rose and its origin.

It’s Sunday tomorrow in New Zealand and I’m including links to some spiritual writing I’ve enjoyed in the last day or two that’ve helped sustain me:

Poem: Set an intention ~by Madeline Bialecki

Poem: Held Together And Re-Membered ~by Malcolm Guite
–for this I recommend to listen to the sound file of the poet reading the words

Discussion: What The Heart Wants ~by Bishop Jake Owensby
