~ Tom waters the garden with the hose. A blue tit flies down onto the white Winchester Cathedral rosebush and hangs from its stems and leaves, drinking the droplets.
~ Saints' motifs and emblems, from the windows of the monastic chapel at Pontmain. The cock, the two fish together and the keys are St Peter's, the dove and the upright fish are with St Francis, the dove held in his hands. I forget who had the little beehive cell like an igloo.
(I can't find any very useful links about Pontmain as a place; most of the available information about it, both on-line and at the place itself, concerns the story of the apparition of the Virgin Mary to a group of children there in the 19th century, which led to it becoming a shrine nearly as important as Lourdes, apparently, rather than the resulting 20th century art and architecture there. It's in the Mayenne, near where my brother lives.)
