Happy Easter to you and yours!

This is a blast from the past. I always hated my Easter hats, which were almost always "pill boxes." This photo was taken by a newspaper photographer as we were leaving church on Easter Sunday. I still have the yellowed, well loved article.

May your Easter be filled with the promises of God and new beginnings!

He is not here; He has risen, just as He said. Come and see the place where He lay.

Matthew 28:6

When I got to Bible study this morning, the parking lot had a section of the lot blocked off by these orange cones. Kind of an odd sign of any potholes or repairs needed.......

Here's the area from the opposite direction...... hmmmmm.......

And here's the reason why the parking lot was blocked off...... a mama goose, sitting on her nest!

I'm not sure why she picked this spot to construct her nest and lay her eggs. Right in the middle of the parking lot, under the street light. No protection, no covering. The church sits on several acres of ground, which isn't exactly wooded, but it has lots of mature trees and grassy areas. Obviously, she knows something that I don't know.

I hope that everything goes well for her and we will soon see some little goslings trailing after her!

I know you've been waiting to see how my rhubarb is doing this year! ;-) Well, here it is. It's doing quite well due to all of the spring rains. I did loose one plant, the one that was closest to the A/C unit. I think the hot, blowing air that comes out of the unit was just too hard on the rhubarb leaves. It struggled through last summer and just didn't emerge this year. Since this is my third year of growth, I'll be able to harvest this year......Yum!
