You've got a lovely photo here. A serene angel, beautiful clouds, and I can just imagine the flowers climbing all over those arches - if not this year, maybe in a few years to come. It looks like rose bushes, so maybe they won't climb, but I'll imagine them doing that!

Lovely & nicely built statue! A great form of an art is sculpting... The cloudy sky adds quite a lot of drama to the picture! Nice shot...

Beautiful statue, in a well-maintained setting, and a sky to envy!

Very pretty statue. I like it when angels are depicted like this, not the cupid-like cute ones. But that's just me. :)

About your question: gecko tea is exactly what it sounds like, tea made out of (dried) geckos. I posted a picture of it last year here.

Somehow, this is very unchurchy - all that sun shining on a strict religion. But pretty photo.

Love the horses below - they look so happy munching on that grass and frolicking.

The Queen of Peace with wings? Seems very unusual.

Marie said...

We both have statues on our blogs today. Who is this queen of peace? An angel?

My statue is not Jesus :-))) I was wrong. I think it is the Virgin Mary but I am not sure yet :-)))

I like this statue and the way you photographed it. There are many churches here called Regina Pacis (Queen of Peace).

Lois Anne, there is something so right about this statue set against that amazing sky.

Interesting statue----I am sure the angel is guarding the 'Queen of Peace'. Love the sky, clouds are a favorite of mine. MB

Nice shot Lois Anne. Such a serene angel.

Did you get your email?

One day God was looking down at Earth and saw all of the rascally behaviour that was going on. So God called one of the angels and sent the angel to Earth for a time.
When she returned, she told God, "Yes, it is bad on Earth; 95% are misbehaving and only 5% are not"
God thought for a moment and said, "Maybe I had better send down a second angel to get another opinion"
So God called another angel and sent him to Earth for a time too. When the angel returned he went to God and said, "Yes, it's true. The Earth is in decline; 95% are misbehaving, but 5% are being good "
God was not pleased so He decided to e-mail the 5% who were being good because he wanted to encourage them give them a little something to help them keep going.
Do you know what the e-mail said?.................................
Just wondering... I didn't get one either....


Have a wonderful weekend, J & LA!

I agree, beautiful statue and the sky sets it off so well.

I didn't get that e-mail either.

Re Corvette: Alas, it isn't mine. I would get into way too much trouble in that car. But I like to dream about it.

I didn't get am email either. Whatha.....

regarding you comment on day4--I have never been in/on a sailboat. I love the water but haven been around boats much. Just rowboats and I did canoe a couple of times. Ferry boats a lot. MB

What a lovely and serene shot, set within the beautiful sky backdrop.

Beautiful against the ethereal sky.

@ My dear Allison: I can understand why some people wouldn't have received the email - like Safe Leif. I mean c'mon...

But, I was surprised you didn't get it. You seem like such a nice person. Probably have been saved, too. Well, that might be going overboard. Nevertheless...

I'd love to tell you what was in the email, but that's against the rules. I can say, though, don't make any long-term plans.

And tell Safe Leif to watch his back, especially in the choir. Sorry I can't be more specific, but I've been warned!

Oh, one other thing - stay away from churches! Especially on the weekends.
