Photo was taken yesterday in the gardens of the Franciscan Friary, Killarney, Co.Kerry (Irl)

Sometimes one bush can set off a whole garden. This one called ‘Azalea’ is particularly striking as you walk into the Franciscan Friary, in Killarney.

Thought on Friday – April – 29/04/2011

The wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton is the only story making the headlines today. The following reflection is appropriate for the day that’s in it called ‘Friendship V Love’

Friendship is a quiet walk in the park with the one you trust. Love is when you feel like you are the only two around.
Friendship is when they gaze into your eyes and you know they care. Love is when they gaze into your eyes and it warms your heart.
Friendship is being close even when you are far apart. Love is when you can still feel their hand on your heart even when they are not near.
Friendship is hoping that they experience the very best. Love is when you bring them the very best.
Friendship occupies your mind. Love occupies your soul.
Friendship is knowing that you will always try to be there when in need. Love is when you will give up everything to be at their side.
Friendship is a warm smile in the winter.
Love is a beautiful smile to which nothing compares, a tender laugh, which opens your heart.
Friendship can survive without love. Love cannot live without friendship.
