{A} Bushy starwort
{B} Family: Asteraceae. "Aster means star and refers to the spreading 'petals' of the flowers of ornamental varieties. Bushy refers to the much branched form of the upper stem. Starwort is a combination of star referring to the flower and wort which means weed or medicinal herb." "Other names: Aster Weed, Marsh Aster, Shrub Aster, Wild Aster. Erect, many branched, dark green, flowers are small and produce wind blown seeds with fluffy parachutes."
{C} Flower for the feast of St. Proclus, Bishop and Confessor. St. Proclus was a secretary and spiritual student of St. John Chrysostom, and friend of St. Cyril of Alexandria, a star among the stars. When Nestorius was named Patriarch of Constantinople, he breached his heresy covertly first then later openly. St. Proclus continued to preach true Christianity against him, and in the year of Our Lord 429 preached a sermon to show the Blessed Virgin ought to be spoken of as the Mother of God. Many of his sermons and letters remain with us today.

'A man full of piety, perfectly skilled in ecclesiastical discipline, and a strict observer of the canons.'

St. Cyril of Alexandria, of St. Proclus

There sure are some fine flowers out for Christmas for sale.

I hope I can find myself a little rosemary tree. They don't seem to be as popular as they were a few years back, it's harder to find them.

{A} Common whitelarch-tree
{B}  Larches can grow to massive heights. "Larch leaves take the shape of soft, flat needles which sprout out in tufts. Each cluster features roughly 30 to 40 green needles, which turn golden-yellow in autumn and fall to the ground during winter." "Among the Larch's green needles, you will also see pinkish red female flowers, which eventually turn into cones." "The tree is grown mainly for its timber, but the inner bark and resin are also used." "Larchwood possesses astringent, antiseptic and diuretic actions. The balsam of larch is used at a concentration of 10% to 20% in gels and ointments for colds and fevers." "The Larch tree is especially valued for its extremely hard wood. The tree's timber is tough, waterproof and knot-free. It is a top pick to construct: boats, panelling, fences, buildings, roof shingles, and coffins."
{C} St. Leocadia, Virgin and Martyr. She was apprehended by an order of Dacian, the cruel governor under Dioclesian, in the year of Our Lord 304. Her constancy was tried by torments, and she died in prison. For, hearing of the martyrdom of St. Eulalia, she prayed that God would not prolong her exile, but unite her speedily with her holy friend in his glory; in which prayer she happily expired in prison.

"St. Leocadia, being called to the trial, exerted all heroic Christian virtues, because she had made her whole life an apprenticeship of them, and their practice had been familiar to her. Some people say it was easy for Christians to be totally disengaged from the world, and to give themselves up to prayer and penance when they daily and hourly expected to be called upon to lay down their lives for Christ. But were we not blinded by the world, and if the enchantment of its follies, the near prospect of eternity, the uncertainty of the hour of our death, and the repeated precepts of Christ were equally the subjects of our meditation, these motives would produce in us the same fervent dispositions which they did in the primitive Christians. How much soever men now-a-days are strangers to these gospel truths, for want of giving themselves leisure to consider them, Christians are bound to be totally disentangled from worldly affections in order to unite their hearts closely to God, that they may receive the abundant graces and favours which He communicates to souls which open themselves to him. They are bound to renounce sensuality, and the disorders and vanities of the world, and to be animated with a spirit of meekness, peace, patience, charity, and affectionate good-will towards all men, zeal, piety, and devotion. They are bound to be prepared in the disposition of their hearts to leave all things, and to suffer all things for his love." - Lives of the Saints
