Mary, Mary

Mary, Mary, quite contrary
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells and cockleshells
And pretty maids all in a row.

    Hey Sindy,

    Hoping all’s abundant at chez Sindy on this Sunday afternoon.

    This is certainly an interesting poem to choose…one with various historical explanations of course, and none of them particularly pleasant! (silverbells = thumbscrews, Maidens + executioners axe.)

    I know I am missing something important in this post (in my ignorance), something deeper, as an extension of Garden of Possibilities perhaps? maybe you can elucidate a little more, please?

    Loving the vibrancy and energy in those shimmering colours!
