Hosanna


At church on Sunday Tim said if Jesus came to Lawson we'd be waving fern fronds, not palm fronds. Which reminds me that I haven't yet shown the tree ferns, partly because I like them a lot and I haven't done them justice in my photographs.

We have 4 or 5 tall tree ferns of the slow growing kind so they are probably very old. These are looking a little worse for wear from the drought. There are 3 or 4 more of the type that are tall and skinny and seem to go from tiny plant to tall in just a few years.

Reflection:
Matthew 21:9 (New International Version)
The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted,
"Hosanna to the Son of David!"
"Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!"
"Hosanna in the highest!"

  1. The original supplicants only waved palm fronds because they were plentiful in the area. Horses for ... something ...

  2. Palm fronds are not plentiful around here (which you will be pleased about given your comment yesterday), however fern fronds abound in these parts.
