I love the leaf-budding energy, the promise of renewal, in this Burning Bush (Euonymus alata). May you feel some of that promise today, whatever your climate, whatever your religion. We will be sharing the day with a little redhead and her parents while our other young families join, in Vancouver, with many of their aunts and uncles and cousins, in a big old heritage home full of chat and laughter and squeals of the younger ones grabbing chocolate eggs in the garden. Here, Paul will be putting a big ham in the oven, and I'm going to make a lemon meringue pie. The sun is still shining in a pewter-apricot sky, but the clouds are soon to put a stop to that. Still, I see an otter's head working its way steadily across the bay, and a sealion just threaded its up-and-under, up-and-under pathway a bit further out. They're all still sleeping, Pater and our guests, so I'm taking a cup of tea down to my brightly coloured chairs at the beach.
after wishing you a Very Lovely Day . . .
