Window Box, Flowers and Peace

We were in Truro this afternoon and I spotted these lovely colourful window boxes.

Further on was this shrub that I don’t know the name of, with such pretty flowers. EDIT My lovely blogging friend, Ute, tells me this is called ‘Hot Lips’ from the Salvia family. Or ‘Salvia jamensis’.Thanks,Ute.

We were in Truro to hear various speakers, Palestinian and Jews, all so very concerned about the situation in Gaza. Just one quotation from one speaker for you, heartbreaking rather than beautiful, “We have lost 12,000 smiles.” That made me weep this afternoon and resonates in my head over and over again.

I am reminded of an amazing song by Peggy Seeger, ‘Oh, how I long for peace.”  Do click on the link.
