Children who are still gentle as milk,
wake to its wonder.”

It’s Spring !
Welcoming sun’s warmth on bare arms;
tilting  faces up to tree branches ablaze with pink and white blooms;
bending to touch nature’s  yellow and red living lights on bushes,
gathering a bouquet of smiling faces pushed up amidst grass and rocks.
Witnessing a joyful display for the senses this Easter! (SMB).

  1. What a glorious, refreshing, spring-filled post for the Easter weekend this is. I relished each quote and photograph. My world is still cold and snowy with only the briefest glimpses of spring. Children hunted Easter eggs at the park today. They were easily found on their carpet of snow. You made my day, Sue.

    1. You always have something thoughtful to say. Spring can’t be too far away for the beautiful winter wonderland you live in, in Colorado.
