A Blissful Easter!

When Spring Appears

Give lusty cheers
When spring appears
When spring appears

Buds and seeds
Prick up their ears
And blades of grass
Show eager spears

And only icicles
Weep tears
When spring appears
When spring appears

What a nice Easter photo tour - with beautiful flowers and a beautiful little spotted foal [guess that's the right term for that age horse?]

But Yolanda Elizabet, your Leucojum look so delicate with the green edging, and that reminds me that mine didn't bloom this year - phooey!

Happy Easter from

Such evocative images, just lovely! I especially like the Snow-in-summer mixed in with your tulips and hyacinths. Now that's the look I like without having the real snow!

It's sleeting here on Easter eve. I've never seen such a late cold snap as we're having this weekend. Your spring images are only a few days away for us---we're expecting 80 degrees F. again by the middle of next week---but it seems awfully far away this moment.

Liebe Yolanda, Deine Fotos zeigen alles, was man sich unter Ostern so vorstellt. Ganz schöne Ostertage für Dich, Deine Familie und alle süßen Pelznasen. Liebe Grüße, Birgit

Hallo Yolanda,
ich hatte gestern Abend schon einen kurzen Blick auf Surprise II geworfen und mich riesig über die Bilder und den Text gefreut!
Wolfgang war derweil noch mit unserer Fotobearbeitung beschäftigt, so dass wir uns eigentlich etwas mehr Zeit für einen gemeinsamen Ostergruß bei Dir nehmen wollten. Aber nun mal kurz zwischendurch: Auch wir wünschen Dir schöne Tage mit all' Deinen grauen und andersfarbigen Stuben- und Outdoor-Tigern.
Wolfgang & Silke

Been away for the past ten days so it's taking me a while to catch up with all my blogging friends and what you've all been writing about recently. I loved the story of Surprise and the kittens, as I'm crazy about cats. Your Easter blog is so pretty and full of life. Your doronicum daisies are much farther on than ours. I loved all the chickens and eggs too.

marné said...

Beautiful pictures! They capture everything I love about Springtime! I love the wreath, and that is such a handsome rooster, is he yours?


Gotta Garden said...

Ah, YE, a belated Happy Easter! What enchanting pictures you've the poem, too!

Those eggs are beautiful!
