More glass

Here's another detail shot of one of the stained glass windows in the collégiale Saint-Sylvain at Levroux. The words mean "Hail, queen of heaven," and come from an old prayer, according to what I found in the internet.

Stained glass, St.-Sylvain de Levroux. October 2004.

Today is predicted to be the last dry day before the possibility of rain on Thursday. I plan to get outside and pick up a bunch of the little branches that were knocked out of our linden tree in the recent windy weather. I want to put them in a dry place and use them as kindling for the wood stove. In past years I also gathered twigs and branches dropped by our birches, but those trees are gone now.


  1. Does Tasha pick up sticks for you, the way Callie used to?

  2. mitch, glad you're enjoying them!

    judy, yes. but with a twist. She latches on to one that I'm picking up and wants to play tug'o'war. When I let go, she runs away with the stick, dropping it a good distance from where it was originally. I have to put her in the house so I can pick up the last sticks. As for sticks out in the vineyard, she'll pick one up and run for a short distance before dropping it. She's not interested in bringing them all the way home.


Tell me what you think!
