To everyone who passes by here,  a happy Easter and Passover and springtime and any other feast of rebirth and renewal that you care to celebrate today or other days.

The concept or belief in resurrection is as old as humanity as is its expression in symbols. If the traditional religious ones don't appeal, have a look at some of the others.

These are terrific, Natalie! Thank you, and Happy Easter. I hope Pushkin got some holiday treats.

Tom said...

Lovely! And thanks for the renewal picture of your home location.

Beth, thanks and I hope springtime has arrived in Montreal. Pushkin hasn't been around for a few days but always gets treats when he does turn up.

Tom, warmest spring wishes to you and Lucy - when will you next be back in London?
