I am so glad its spring...

Spring is my favorite time of the year.  Inspite of all the mud the children drag into the house, I love it.
My daughter was able to attend a professional gardeners' flower sale and bought some lovely blooms for a fraction of the price you would pay elsewhere. It's a weakness we both share.

Here they are in our livingroom behind my spinning wheel.

Spring comes in with it's paintbrush and starts to color away the drabness of winter.  First a bloom here and there....maybe just white at first...then the greens get greener and there's purple and yellows.  The barren tree branches come alive with a red hue that can only be seen when you stand at a distance. 
Not to mention the flowers' sweet spicy scents that fragrance the air.
It reminds me of the sweet promise of salvation.  The dead are not really dead but merely asleep.  To be awakened by the warm savior's a new colorful glorious body that will continue throughout eternity.
Happy Easter!
