We think the title of this picture could be, What Should Not Be But Is. Wild bindweed, an invasive plant, twines about a drain pipe outside the Abbey kitchen. Perhaps unnoticed by the brothers who tend the gardens when it was just sprouting, it is now luxuriantly, elegantly out of place in the warmth and sunlight of midsummer. Perhaps a reminder of the beauty of accepting what should not be but is nonetheless and noticing the finger of God even there.
