When we moved to our home twenty five years ago we brought with us and transplanted this azalea bush which on spring days lights up our back yard.
Here are John O’Donohue’s words on the color of beauty:
“Colour is the language of light; it adorns the earth with its beauty.
“Light is the great unnoticed force of transfiguration in the world: it literally alters everything it touches.
“The intense passion of the first artist glows forth in the rich colours of creation. In this sense, colour is the visual Eucharist of things.”
