Stained Glass Tulips

One of the most glorious things I’ve ever seen is light filtering through the stained glass panels in Sainte Chapelle, the medieval Gothic chapel on the Île de la Cité in the heart of Paris, France. It’s within walking distance of another medieval edifice that is a testament to the glories of high Catholicism, Notre Dame. The rose-shaped stained glass windows of Notre Dame are almost as memorable as Ste. Chapelle. 

Whenever I see light filtering through glowing flower petals nowadays, I am reminded of the depth and saturation of colors in stained glass. Even though humans have done an amazing job creating these works of art, though, nothing compares with nature’s extraordinary showing.
