The first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another. The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month. ~Henry Van Dyke, American author, educator, and clergyman
I’ve been waiting for a pretty day to capture some of Central Illinois’s Spring beauty, but alas! By the time that rolls around, all the good blooms will be gone and it will be 90 degrees outside!
So I’ve decided a nice walk around town in search of blossoms, Easter/Spring decorations, and such will have to suffice.
Let’s get started.
Not my tulips and daffodils, but aren’t they pretty?
“May God bless you at Easter,
and keep you all year through.
May God give you all the faith you need,
to make your dreams come true.
May His love and wisdom always help,
to guide you on your way.
May His light shine down upon you now,
to bless your Easter Day.” — Irish Prayer, Author Unknown
Note: A blessed Easter to you and yours!
Let the resurrection joy lift us from loneliness and weakness and despair to strength and beauty and happiness. ~Floyd W. Tomkins, Episcopal American deacon
Time off to celebrate the day
For Easter Alleluias.
And eleventh hour flute practice
For a band concert this week.
I’ll return soon — til then
Happy Easter! Happy Spring!
I’ve got a case of the lazies right now (let’s just call it Spring Fever!). It’s hard to be inside working when the sunshine is calling, birds are chirping, and nature beckons.
Anyway, with Domer home for a short spell and all the church obligations I need to participate in over the weekend, I decided I’d take the easy way out and post some spring pictures. You enjoy pretty pictures now and then, don’t you?
Here’s hoping everyone has a beautiful Easter!
Pair of pink tulips
I think this is a rhododendron
No clue what this is, but it's a mass of lilac-colored blooms!
