Text on tulle
‘There is a lesson in each flower, A story in each stream and bower, In every herb on which you tread Are written words, which rightly read Will lead you from earth’s fragrant sod, To hope, to holiness, and God.’

The promise
Religion has played a major aspect in my life through my grandmother’s catholic
beliefs. As I was brought up by her I envied her belief - to me the religious text
became a jumble of words coiled up in an unintelligible way and apart from my
excitement about nature I never made the connection with her beliefs.
