Palm Sunday

Palm Sunday is like a glimpse of Easter.
It's a little bit joyful after being somber during Lent.
~~Laura Gale

Areca palms and asparagus ferns flourish in our backyard.

We have enough palm branches to supply the Palm Sunday procession at our church.

Alleluia, how the people cheer
And palm leaves rustle as the king draws near.
~~John Beavis

Your home is so lovely. And I loved both of the Palm Sunday quotes.

Fondly,

Ok...Two things. Your backyard is as far from somber as possible.

and B. I wanna play human chess in your yard. Carry on.

Gorgeous! Looks like such a fun way to relax! Are your chairs and sofa made out of cement? If so, however was that accomplished? Or is it just a wonderful copy in plastic?
I'm mystified and awed.

hahaha Lime in the Coconut!!! and ditto on the beauty of your yard.
What a neat way to compare our "now" palms with those of the past. Love the way your brain works!
