Chocolate – the ultimate comfort food! Bam!

Cozy and addictive, this cafe shop located in the Berkshire, Lenox, MA. They say “Chocolate Springs” is one of the top 10 star chocolate makers in the United States. I don’t know about the others nine, but when I am in this cafe shop I feel that trying everything…so I limit my visits to the store, just two -three times per a year.

Centaurea Montana

“It is widespread and common in the more southerly mountain ranges of Europe, but is rarer in the north. It escapes from gardens readily, and has thereby become established in the British Isles, Scandinavia and North America.” Quoted from Wikipedia.

“Vines will be planted, corn will spring up, a whole growth of new crops; and people will still fall in love in vintages and harvests yet to come. Life is eternal; it is a perpetual renewal of birth and growth.”

Just a glance of somebody else’s garden.

A short note about # In the Berkshires, if the Boston Symphony Orchestra has cancelled their shows this summer at Tanglewood, a bunch of places remain closed this year. Kripalu – famous yoga center and few good restaurants from Lenox, Lee MA.
As for me I was hopping to see John Legend performance in August at…, Tanglewood.
Backstreet Boys got cancelled in Saratoga, NY. Other than this, all good.
Still tulips season.

The Queen of May

” Mary is the excellent masterpiece of the Most High, the knowledge and possession of which He has reserved to Himself. Mary is the admirable Mother of the Son, who took pleasure in humbling and concealing her during her life in order to favor her humility, calling her by the name of “woman” (In.2:4; 19:26), as if she were a stranger, although in His heart He esteemed and loved her above all angels and all men. Mary is the “sealed fountain” (Cant. 4:12), the faithful spouse of the Holy Ghost, to whom He alone has entrance. Mary is the sanctuary and the repose of Holy Trinity, where God dwells more magnificently and more divinely than in any other place in the universe, not excepting His dwelling between the Cherubim and Seraphim. Nor is any creature, no mater how pure, allowed to enter into that sanctuary except by a great and special privilege.”

Saint Louis De Montfort, True Devotion to Mary
