Easter Week

See the land, her Easter keeping, Rises as her Maker rose. Tulips and Bunny 

Seeds, so long in darkness sleeping, Burst at last from winter snows. Grape Hyacinth

Earth with heaven above rejoices; Fields and gardens hail the spring; crocus 

 Shaughs and woodlands ring with voices, While the wild birds build and sing. IMG_4806

You, to whom your Maker granted Powers to those sweet birds unknown, Easter Chicks in white 

Use the craft by God implanted; Use the reason not your own. Easter China Cabinet

Here, while heaven and earth rejoices, Each his Easter tribute bring-- Easter Cross 

Work of fingers, chant of voices, Like the birds who build and sing. IMG_4789

"Easter Week" poem by Charles Kingsley, 1867. 

A few views from around my home this Easter Week.
