This is the sensory season. Trees are in leaf… It is a green world… Walk through an orchard and you can smell as well as feel the strength of grass underfoot, new grass reaching tall toward the sun. Boughs naked only a little while ago, then bright and heady with bloom, now rustle with leaf and tingle with the strength of fruition. Listen, and you can almost hear the pulse of sap and the mysterious workings of chlorophyll. The air vibrates with bird song… All the senses tingle, alive with the season as the world itself is alive. Nothing is impossible at such a time. ~Hal Borland, American writer, journalist, and naturalist
Happy Spring, my friends! I’m taking a few days off — see you after Easter!
Debbie, beautiful photo, beautiful words! Perfect for Spring!
You know, I had totally forgotten about Easter being this coming Sunday until I looked at my work schedule yesterday and saw that I was off on Sunday. Which was strange, because I normally work the weekends.”
Happy Easter to you, Domer, and Monkey! Enjoy your break! X
How did you almost forget about Easter?? Haven’t you been swamped with ads for dressy clothing? Haven’t you almost tripped over parents deciding which basket to purchase for their little ones? Haven’t you had any egg hunts in your parks? I’m amazed, Ron. Of course, our churches, too, have been fuller than normal, everybody getting ready for the holiday. Hope you enjoy your day off — and the weather cooperates!
Happy break and a blessed Easter, Debbie! Enjoy the rising spring!
Thanks, Linda. A blessed Easter to you as well (and let’s hope the storms hold off … at least for Sunday!)
Happy spring … enjoy the week and have a blessed Easter.
Happy Spring to you, too, Frank. I find myself in serious need of a break — this is a perfect opportunity for one!
Have a wonderful break! Also, I am a huge fan of Hal Borland.
Glad to know that, Laurie. Happy Easter/Spring to you, too. I really shouldn’t drive myself so hard that I need a break!
But you should definitely take a break if you need one.
Happy Easter, Debbie. Enjoy your time off. 😁. Loved the description of spring.
Thanks, John (I did, too!). Happy Easter to you and yours.
Happy Easter Debbie!
Have a lovely break, Debbie!
Happy Spring, Debbie! And Happy Easter, too!
Hope you had a wonderful Easter, Debbie!
