Easter Blessings

Happy Easter to everyone - it feels a bit weird today as this is the first Easter at home for 15 years (the year Philippa was born as she was too little to go - only 5 weeks). We used to always go away with my dad for Easter week, we've been all over the UK with the last three years being at the caravan. Dad is now too ill/old to travel and Michael is working so cannot come for the week, so we decided to stay here, go out for Sunday lunch with all the family and then Nick, Philly and I will go up to Wales. That way dad and Michael have seen us over the hols.

Amazingly the Easter Bunny found us every year and Michael and Philippa would have great fun collect the tiny eggs he's scattered all over the lounge - a very clever bunny to find us no matter where we stayed LOL. This year the Easter Bunny left an egg of mini eggs outside their bedroom doors as maybe at 18 & 15 it's not cool to rush round the lounge collecting eggs - the gifts was quickly found and claimed though.

We have a song thrush in our neighbourhood and although he's not in our garden he sits on a huge tree a couple of doors and sings all day. We can see him quite clearly, even better through the binoculars. He is just a little too far away for any pictures but I did take a couple of the garden which looks gorgeous.

This is my camelia - Lady Clare













and these bleeding hearts look so delicate.













Easter blessing to you all, enjoy.

My camilia is just showing a pink bud, it will open soon. My magnolia however has looked a treat for a few days.

Your camellia is beautiful. Funnily my 15-in-2-weeks year old thinks its perfectly cool to tear around the garden looking for eggs!
