May Roses for the Mother of God

The garden of Santa Croce in Gerusalemme with the roses in bloom seen from the roof terrace. In the background one can see the May 1st manifestations being held in the park that runs from Santa Croce to San Giovanni in Laterano.


Bring flowers of the fairest, Bring flowers of the rarest
From garden and woodland and hillside and dale....

I so much wish I was there.

Me too.

O Roma felix !
