arid ground nurtures

her seeds of lavender sown

presence of grace


Inspired by the Lenten Journey reading of  John 12:1-11

Information on Nard

Ancient Greeks often referred to Lavender as Nard.
Lavender was one of the holy herbs used in the biblical Temple to prepare the holy essence.

Mary took a pound of costly perfume made of pure nard, anointed Jesus’ feet, and wiped them with her hair. The house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume.  v. 3

  • I had not known that lavendar oil and nard were one and the same. Wonderful photo and down-to-earth haiku to expand upon today’s scripture passage about Mary anointing the feet of Jesus with costly nard!
