The glass-blue days are those
When every colour glows,
Each shape and shadow shows.
Blue be it: this blue heaven
The seven or seven times seven
Hued sunbeam will transmit
Perfect, not alter it.

Gerard Manley Hopkins

The Blessed Virgin compared to the Air we breathe

    Hi, lovely photo, where was that taken? hope you are well, love Pauline xx

    • Hello Pauline –
      It’s at Renishaw Hall and Gardens in Derbyshire, the ancestral home of the Sitwell family. There were also magnolias, Himalayan poppies and a handkerchief tree in bloom and goslings on the lake – plus sunshine. Perfect.
