“Is the spring coming?" he said. "What is it like?"...
"It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine...”
― Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden
Or in this case - the snow falling on the pear blossoms!
This was from our snow yesterday. We got about an inch and it was one of those that stuck to the trees well, but not so much to the roads. The best kind!
"The seeker embarks on a journey to find what he wants and discovers, along the way, what he needs."
~ Wally Lamb
On our Easter Sunday Walk we visited the Whitt-Riverbend Park in Ripplemead, Virginia (near Pearisburg) As we walked along trail that leads you right along the New River I spotted these beautiful Virginia Bluebells. This is the first time in my life I had seen Bluebells in "the wild". Normally I had found them in cultivated gardens. I was thrilled! As you can see they were not in full bloom and I'm not sure if I will be able to get back by the time they are - but they certainly were a JOY to see!
