|The sun came out for Easter. Early in the morning, it was cold but it later warmed up. I went to church, sang in the choir, and then walked home, via the linear bike path and Buckhorn Island State Park. Below are some of the images of the day.|
|The gloom of Good Friday was gone, replaced by candles and translucent white material.|
|The church was full of people. They lined up to place artificial flowers on the cross that had previously been bare.|
|Diana finds a spot near the floor for her addition.|
|Diana returns to the pew to rejoin her parents and her brother.|
|No one has uttered the word “Alleluia” since Ash Wednesday.|
|Allison had no clue that Dave was going to propose to her. She was overwhelmed with emotion… and then said yes.|
|Here is the newly engaged couple.|
|Lovely plants for Easter.|
|Linear bike path.|
|Me and my shadow.|
|Reflections on a clear day…|
|A tree in early spring…|
|This bird was running down the bike path. Apparently, birds have as much of a need to jog as humans do. What sort of goodies do birds get on Easter? No calories, right?|
|“All right, already! That’s enough jogging for one day! Could it be time for a… swim???”|
|A warm spring day is good for canoeing in Woods Creek and exploring Buckhorn Island State Park.|
|The creek is very wide at this point.|
|Crocuses add new color to a rather dull landscape.|
Seen on Grand Island.
|Here is a lovely clump of crocuses. Or are they croak-eye?|
|A swing, waiting for an occupant.|
|The rain creates this mini-lake. The clay soil, so common to this area, is slow to absorb water. Hence, it pools into these mini-lakes.|
In front of the house, at the end of the little adventure, I spotted this bee exploring the crocus.
Happy Easter! Have a great day!
