The Perfect Church Window

There is an episode of the Vicar of Dibley about a stained glass window being destroyed by a storm.  There is the expected comedic episode with five different remembrances of what the scene was in the window, an epic fundraiser, and a tragedy someplace in the world.  In the closing scene, the window is revealed in clear glass showing the beautiful English countryside, the Vicar has sent the money that was raised to the disaster relief fund and let the window show the beauty they are surrounded by.  For some reason stumbling across this image taken in the ruins of an English Abbey brought back memories of that episode, and the beauty framed in our windows.  

What beauty is framed in your window today?

    1. Nice, it is partly cloudy with wonderful patches of powder blue shy, and the trees are vibrant green.

    2. Better you are seeing wild turkeys than drinking wild turkey.
