Below is some of the beautiful scenery we found as the Sat Nav took us to another address yesterday whilst (Eng.) looking for lost sheep (less actives on the ward list).

I know, if you've seen one church, street, purple flower, narrow lane, rock wall, green meadow, etc., you've seen them all, but we can't get enough of them. We hope you won't either. If so, you can always not look. Ha, ha!
"For the beauty of the earth, for the beauty of the skies, for the love which from our birth over and around us lies . . . For the beauty of each hour of the day and of the night, hill and vale, tree and flower, sun and moon, and stars of light, . . . For the joy of human love, brother, sister, parent, child, friends on earth, and friends above, for all gentle thoughts and mild, Lord of all, to thee we raise this our hymn of grateful praise."
The yellow up on the hill has a sign that says it is a "heather reclamation" area. I see no typical lavender heather, so a assume the bushes all over the hills there are related to the heather family.

It says "1846" on the wall.

found in Hanley.

The barber shop road and the purple wish on the left.
Here is one of those "ones" He cares for, growing against all odds, hoping to survive, and showing such courage and hope . . . Matthew 6:29 "And yet I say unto you, that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these."
