Rebirth

This time of year is so refreshing. Colors are singing along with the birds, buds are bursting forth in bloom and leaf. I love it. One day it looks like the whole earth is dying and within a few days it has new life again. A perfect illustration of the Easter season.

Along River Road in St. Gabriel, LA. last week.

These are all beautiful but the first one is idyllic. We've a few more weeks before things are as sprightly and green as they are there, but we're beginning to see sprouts, shoots, and buds!

I love all the yellow. I think Louisiana looks way more like what Easter is supposed to look like than Ontario does! ;))

Isn't that just a wonderful sight to behold? Love everything coming out of their long winter slumber. Your photos are gorgeous Gail, to see all that color with your own eyes, must have been really something, and the house and those cute calves are a sweet addition.

We haven't reached the stage of spring you are in...quite yet. But one day of sunshine caused the daffodils to bloom! That's a great start.
