Resurrection Sunday 2010
In our clime, Spring does just that. It springs upon us! Pounces. One day the branches are bare and the ground is gray as old bones. A week later blossoms are everywhere and the trees (at least some of them) have leaves! Fauna and flora bask in the moist breezes and warming sun.
The trees at the top of this post are some of the very first to bloom: mountain laurel, redbud and tulip trees. May our celebration of new life long outlast these first bursts of joy at rebirth.
