Palm Sunday

"Hosanna, loud hosanna the little children sang;
through pillared court and temple the lovely anthem rang"


  1. Lovely picture Frances. I especially like the little ladybug at the bottom.

    Actually, in its simplicity, its quite moving.

  2. Thank you Barry. The ladybugs having been finding their way into the house ever since the warm days started earlier this month. I've rescued a couple from the cat just in time.

    Turns out the ladybug is a symbol for Our Lady, the red wings representing her cloak, and the black spots her joys and sorrows. Who knew?

  3. I did not know that about the ladybird or ladybugs as you call them.

    Your lovely painting reminds me of Cicely Mary Barker of Flower Fairy fame, she illustrated some religious subjects for children.
