Jacobs Ladder

Jacob's Ladder, or Greek Valerian, Polemonium caeruleum, giving its name to the order Polemoniaoeae, is a herbaceous perennial, native to the North of England, and commonly grown in gardens, sometimes with variegated leaves. It grows about a foot high, with hardly branched stems, scattered pinnate leaves, and numerous shortly-stalked blue or white pentamerous flowers, nearly an inch across.

“Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
Hebrews 12:2
