Silent Sunday

“Veil after veil of thin dusky gauze is lifted,

and by degrees the forms and colours of things are restored to them,

and we watch the dawn remaking the world

in its antique pattern.”

Oscar Wilde

“If there is nothing new under the sun,

at least the sun itself is always new,

always re-creating itself out of its own inexhaustible fire.”

    Beautiful photos full of color and energy that comes with spring! I love the words of Oscar Wilde.

  2. Beautiful blossoms! Like a day in May for me 😉 Tell me, do you have many bees visiting?

    • Eliza, I’m so happy to tell you that our garden is full of gigantic bumble bees. They are so loud, we’ve been looking closely to make sure they aren’t electronic drones or something. We’ve smaller bees, too, and butterflies. We think we saw a Monarch one day last week- but it flew past quickly and we weren’t sure of the ID. Our lizzies have been skittering about as well. Oh, so sweet when the garden fills with creatures again 😉

  3. Such lovely Spring images, perfect for Easter.
