St Peters Basilica overlooking more formal sections of The Vatican Gardens
I LOVE to travel and take time to view new gardens, taking inspiration for my own little plot. On 7th March 2009, I was incredibly blessed to take a guided tour of the Vatican Gardens; I was able book via the Internet.
The Arboretum – a peaceful place for contemplation
A replica of Our Lady of Lourdes Grotto
I cannot tell you how happy I was to join that garden tour, but the following day surpassed all my dreams, when I received holy communion from Pope Benedict on my birthday!
The full story is told in my memoir – “Watching the Daisies – Life Lessons on the Importance of Slow”.
I hope to have news on a publishing date in August.
