Better Late Than Not Ever

Not a lot, and only here and there. But, the San Benito River is beginning to flow beneath the bridge on Nash Road. And, the hills are starting to turn green. Thank you, Rain!

The Glass Connection

Did you know we have a shop in our county that sells clocks, lamps, windows, tiles, ceiling plates, and other products made of colored glass? Walking by the shop one evening was what inspired me to look for examples of stained glass art in our area.   If you're in San Juan Bautista, check out The Glass Connection.

I hope you enjoyed the stained glass theme the past few days. Here are links to the posts, in case you missed them or want to revisit them.
Enjoy the rain. Until tomorrow, Dear Readers.

Stained Glass Windows in the Former Hospital

The building that was once the original Hazel Hawkins Hospital on Monterey Street has a few beautiful stained glass windows in its south wing. Notice how the glass is bubble-like rather than smooth? 

When the Husband and I stopped by a few days ago, we saw that the plates lining the ceiling of the hallway were ripped out. Too bad.  It was an amazing sight to behold. I still wonder the inspiration for such a design. For those of you who never saw it, click here and scroll down to the bottom of the post.

This small piece of glass work is on a back door. I like how at first -- and second -- glance the outdoors seem to be part of the window. In a way, it really is.

Church Stained Glass Windows

Many churches in San Benito County have stained glass windows. Some artwork depict stories from the Bible, while other pieces are decorations. The photos on this page show two of the beautiful stained glass windows at the Hollister United Methodist Church on Monterey and Fifth Streets.

The Stained Glass in St. Benedict Church

I wonder how the term stained glass came about that people thought it was uncool to say, "Wow! That's beautiful colored glass."

Anyway, I've been noticing stained glass lately that I decided to feature some of the local sightings over the next few days. Today's photo shows some of the beautiful stained glass artwork  at St. Benedict Church on Fairview Road. To see another piece at the church, go to this page on Take 25 to Hollister.
