A crocus unfolds to show a special beauty within. The crocus flower is so eye catching at this time of year. They come in many colours and are not too fussy where you plant them. Keen gardeners will know that snowdrops which are the first flowers of spring are really fussy where they grow. Crocus flowers look best when they are sown in groups. They are also a valuable source of pollen for honeybees at this time of year.

A Prayer For Lent by Pope Francis is a lovely gentle prayer as we begin our Lenten Journey

A Prayer For Lent by Pope Francis:

Fast from hurting words and say kind words

Fast from sadness and be filled with gratitude

Fast from anger and be filled with patience

Fast from pessimism and be filled with hope

Fast from worries and have trust in God

Fast from complaints – contemplate simplicity

Fast from pressures and be prayerful

Fast from bitterness, fill your hearts with joy

Fast from selfishness and be compassionate

Fast from grudges and be reconciled

Fast from endless words, be silent and listen
