Spring and Easter

Beverly, at Pink Saturday has given us the leeway this week to deviate from the tradional pink post and do anything:
Spring, Easter or Passover related.

I am going to start with why spring is my favorite time of year. I love the look of new growth. All the many shades of green that show up in the grass, trees and shrubs. The photo above was taken just his afternoon a few yards from the home of my cousin. It is a wooded area that borders the Bourbeuse River dotted with white dogwood trees.

This is one of my favorite houses in town. It sits on a corner lot at the end of the lane where my sister lives. The yard is an endless array of year round color. Spring brings these wonderful blooms from the pink dogwood trees and beds of bright spring bulbs.

What would Easter be without colored eggs. I snapped these in the local supermarket.

When running errands around town I do my best to avoid the main roads. I often take longer routes through the neighborhoods to get me where I need to be. That is how I came across this large chocolate bunny and the Easter eggs decorating this yet to be planted flower bed.

I wish you all a Happy Easter and may you get out and discover some new area of your town before this wonderful season called Spring has turned into the heat of summer.

I am linking this post to Pink Saturday, hosted by Beverly at How Sweet the Sound.

  4. Hi,

    Happy Easter.

    I am the shortcut queen too. Otherwise, you wouldn't have found that bunny & eggs. Delightful.

    I invite you to visit me too.


  5. Happy Easter and HAPPY SPRING!! Enjoy the perfect time of year. (I miss Spring -- both literally and figuratively -- the price we pay for no winter is no spring; by the time we get back to Oregon it will be over.)


Thank you for stopping by my site. Without your visits there would be no incentive to continue posting. So, having you here and reading your comments is the highlight of my day.

I regret that time does not always allow me to return visits to everyone who stops by, but, I will certainly do my best to get to everyone. I will definitely answer any questions you leave me.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
