The Letter R


R is for red roses on May Day.

And a memory of crowning the statue of the Virgin Mary in the school’s grotto.

Red roses on her head

schoolgirls singing her praise

ave, ave, ave Maria

  1. Roses are timeless. They make any garden come alive with their beautiful blooms and fragrance.

    Beautiful photo, Angeline, and a wonderful Blast from the Past. I’d completely forgotten about the Mayday crowning of Mary. Thanks for the smile.

    or: RED sails at the sunset by Fats Domino – maybe not as famous as “I never promised you a rose garden” by Lynn Anderson … – or who knows the RED RIVER ROCK?

    How lovely! I attended a catholic school and this brought back somewhat similar memories 🙂
