Flowers for the Immaculate Conception (Jesus’ delight edition)

The Tyburns have the most spectacular flowers in their garden. These flowers grow by the zillions on vines that have taken over an entire wall of the monastery grounds. Of course, the Tyburns being Tyburns, they have the more stately, staid orchids:

But unlike ice cube flowers the ones looking like hoarfrost up top seem to bespeak a lively joy.

There are times for stately and staid and there are times for lively joy. When I see such things I can only think that Jesus especially delights in giving flowers to His good mom.
