Suddenly the Good News

Visible to anyone in the world

No. In this case, not the Gospel teaching about the life of Jesus Christ. I have just noticed, on my neighbour’s pergola, his vine has put forth a few tentative pale green leaves. It reminds me of Noah and the Ark. How glad he must have been to see the dove with green olive leaves in its beak. The not-so-good news, but nevertheless welcome, is that his vine tendrils will soon be invading my fence, threatening the little orange bush, the struggling lemon, the bird of paradise plant and the hibiscus. We cannot have everything in this world. I can live with his tendrils.
