I prefer the out of doors. I spent my time of contemplation in Crystal Springs Park.
This park is just a moderate walk from my house but I haven't been there for a while because it's a steep walk down, and then back up, and I have been sparing my knees lately. But this is my day for celebrating spring and new life and renewal, and the park called to me to walk under the arches and canopy of newly emerging green.
My cathedral floor is carpeted in green: Spring Beauty
Non- native lunaria ( money plant)
Native bleeding heart
red flowering currant
Trillium far off the pathThe pews were empty in my sanctuary, and the choir was the singing of birds.
There is a spring, with ever flowing water, gurgling from the ground.
Big leaf maple flowers and newly emerging leaves.After climbing back up the hill, I visited my every day park, where the dogwood trees are blooming in time for Easter.
Legend has it that the dogwood flower symbolizes the Crucifixion, with the petals forming the cross and the center the crown of thorns.
No matter how you celebrate Easter, I hope it brings you joy and peace and hope.
Happy Easter, everyone!
