Happy Easter!

Here's hoping that everybody had a Happy Easter. To me, Easter's always been about the Earth's return to vibrancy after winter. Once Easter rolls around, it's safe to say that Spring is in full swing. Here at work, the daffodils are at their peak. Check out these lovely cream colored ones with yellow centers:

They make a nice contrast with the more conventional yellow ones:

All over the site, there are green things popping up- crocuses, wild alliums, and my beloved stinging nettles. There are no chocolate bunnies growing on trees, but I can't complain... I prefer the real ones to the chocolate ones... though I guess a conejo mole poblano could be considered a chocolate rabbit.

Happy Easter, B^4!

Right now I am in Berkeley Springs. Not sure yet if we're headed back to D.C. tomorrow or on Wednesday.

Great pics.

I assume that's why the Christians grabbed onto so much pagan imagery for Easter: The resurrection (return to life) of Jesus somehow corresponds with Spring... and bunnies.

Jesus. Fecundity. It all makes sense. It's the circle of life.

That first Narcissus with the broad, pale cup is "Ice Follies". It's a personnal favorite not only for loveliness, but for outstanding vigor, weather resistance, and reliable increase over time. Here, the lilacs are bloming. The soft spring will soon be giving way to the long, dry summer, when everything gets hard and sharp.kiss someone under the buzzing Wisteria while you can.

My long-term ambition is to use "jonquil" in a game of Scrabble.
