Corpus Christi – Fronleichnam

Standard

There is a religious catholic holiday in Germany called Fronleichnam

In English it is called Corpus Christi.

I was fortunate to witness it on Thursday, while I visited my mum.

Custom is that people make flower carpets where the procession walks along.

They are made out of leaves, flowers and petals of different colours.

I saw the fresh carpets in the morning, and they were so beautiful.

We saw the procession coming from the church.

 

The priest read from the bible and then they

continued to the town center.

 

It was lovely to watch in beautiful sunshine.

Over the years I have enjoyed my loyal Primula in a pot in my garden.

Every year it is the first plant to bloom.

This picture is from 30th March 2016

That plant is going through all type of weather, recently snow, winds, heavy rain …

it is quite old and yet

it keeps blooming, giving me joy.

It has now ( 30th March 2018) even more flowers.

It stays strong through it all.

We need to be strong too, when we go through rough patches,

and keep on blooming.

We are stronger than we think and like the flower,

we can get through it !

Have a strong and blooming day! 

Hello September – Make it simple

Standard

After the holiday season of August I am back to working routine.

Yet I am very relaxed and take it easy.

So I will….

Make life simple,

Don’t multi task,

Do one thing at a time,

Take my time,

Enjoy what I am doing.

Eat less, chew more;

Whine less, breathe more;

Talk less, say more;

And all good things will be yours!”

Flowers for you !

Even in London are plenty  of green belts and gardens to visit.

I discover more and more.

I captured this beauty with my phone in the

London Barbican conservatory.
