I hope you have all had a good week – hasn’t the weather been funny? I think we have had all the four seasons in one week!
The saga of my garden continues…As many of you will know I only started gardening during ‘Lockdown’ and many of you have kindly sent me advice or photos to help me. I just have to share these photos from the Hirmiz family that have inspired me to keep going:
Aren’t they fabulous! I particularly like the strawberries and that groovy Flamingo! Mrs Hirmiz told me; “The last picture is a plant with pink flowers called Pelargonium graveolens. This one we used to have in Iraq we put the leaves with tea, it gives a very nice flavour to it.” Now, that does sound delicious!
I was telling Lillian in Reception all about my garden on Monday and she kindly brought me in 3 tomato plants.
I will keep you up to date with how I get on with them!
Back to business:
Art Challenge Feast Days
We have two important Feast Days in our Church calendar for June. The 19th June is the Feast of the Sacred Heart and 29th June is the Feast Day of St Peter and St Paul.
For your art challenge this week I would you to do a creation linked to either of these Feast Days.
The Sacred Heart of Jesus is an object of devotion and always falls 19 days after Pentecost.
As you know, St Peter was given the ‘keys to heaven’ by Jesus and was our first Pope and in Matthew Ch16v18 Jesus said ‘And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church.’ He is also the Patron St of fishermen. St Paul changed from not believing in Christianity to spreading the word through the letters that he wrote. Naturally, he is the Patron St of writers.
Ideas to inspire you:
Alternatively, you could do artwork to do with the Patron St that you have been linked to in school (England St George; Scotland St Andrew; Ireland St Patrick: Wales St David), or the Patron St of your home country.
However, if this doesn’t appeal to you, then you can still send any other art work to me and I will post that on the Blog too.
Please email your artwork to me:
