Beauty and sadness

 0803230010.jpg

 This afternoon I went for a short walk in Greenbank Garden (NTS).  Easter Saturday is a day to spend in the quiet of the garden.  Looking at the Lenten roses I was struck (as always) by their beauty.  Today it seemed to me that they were bowing their heads in sorrow – an appropriate response during the time of Lent.  But, their beauty will continue to give joy in the risen life tomorrow.
