The great gift of Easter is hope – Christian hope which makes us have that confidence in God, in his ultimate triumph, and in his goodness and love, which nothing can shake. -Basil Hume, English Catholic bishop
Somehow, it seems fitting that Easter comes at the same time nature is waking from a deep winter’s sleep.
And, because one of my northern blogging buddies nudged me that she’s looking forward to seeing Springtime photos from my part of the world, I set out with camera and good intentions — braving high pollen levels, I might add! — to capture the following shots:
Weeping Cherry begins to bud
Aren’t these pretty? One is white; the other, a delicate pink
Pink magnolia against a blue sky
I found a yard dotted with these Hyacinths — blues and pinks
Magnolia branch up close
Who doesn’t love yellow Daffodils? Mine aren’t blooming yet, so I snapped a neighbor’s patch!
No idea what this is, but it’s spectacular
Don’t know what these are either, but one yard was lined with them.
One house had an entire row of these blue Hyacinths, and the scent was intoxicating!
More Daffodils (white, this time), along with some bulb flowers yet to burst forth
Who invited Mushrooms to the party??
Note: Happy Easter to all my friends celebrating the holy season! Happy Spring to all!
