A Blue Moon rose growing in our garden in the North-East of England. The Blue Moon rose produces huge blossoms with a heavenly fragrance, but, unfortunately, not very many of them and they are very short lived. Because of the abundance of petals, the blossom is very heavy, so once the bud is open, the rose turns its face towards the ground, unless it is really high up on the tree.

Photographing the high ones is a step ladder job. You need three hands – two to operate the camera and at least one more to hang on to the step ladder – or a helpful husband!

But then, when you reach heavenwards, there is also a kind of spiritual gravity, which tends to pull you down, and, were not for Our Lord’s atoning sacrifice on the cross, we would stand no chance of eternal salvation.

Perhaps we can take a lesson from this rose and remember to bow our heads in prayer this Sabbath day and every other day of the week.







My life is divided between teaching Music and Photography. The instruments I play are organ, piano, clarinet and saxophone. I taught German and Spanish before my retirement, but since I got my digital camera no longer have time for them!
