Winter bugs

No, not the creepy crawly, flying kind, the infectious ones! While a storm outside was battering the village, I spent most of yesterday in bed, feeling dreadful, struck down with aching limbs and dizziness. Winter is really here!
When I was awake, and wondering how the garden in France was surviving the winter, I dipped into a truly original and fascinating book, Jane Mossendew's (of the blog 'Thoughts from a Catholic Oasis' here ) 'Gardening with God, Light in Darkness,' the first of a trilogy covering the whole of the Church's year, which I recommend wholeheartedly to anyone with an interest in both plants and gardens and in prayer and the liturgy.

Some music in honour of Our Lady, not unseasonal - and French: Pierre Villette's Hymne a la Vierge
