Opening Faces

We are discovering garden secrets left behind by a previous home owner.
When tulips popped up along the front walkway,
I couldn't resist cutting a few to
juxtapose against the reds of our living room sofa.
 
 
Hostas galore are coming along in shaded areas.
A couple chive plants...
And I'm cooking up early rhubarb stems
to brew pale pink rhubarb cordials.

Easter Tidings


"Do not abandon yourselves to despair.
We are the Easter people and
hallelujah is our song."

Pope John Paul II

 
 
"Our lord has written the promise of resurrection,
not in books alone
but in every leaf of springtime."

Martin Luther

Daffodils and pansies

Snapdragons

 
HAPPY EASTER!
