Peaceful Easter

This morning after I poked the brew button on our coffeemaker, I stepped out on the deck to get a feel for the weather. The sky was transitioning from midnight blue to a color of blue that has no name. The moon was high in the sky and looked like a half eaten biscuit.
Even though the sun was not up, I could see tinges in the tops of trees and I knew it would be a beautiful day.
A while later I slipped on my shoes and stepped down to the road to fetch the Sunday paper as the sun peeped above the eastern horizon. At the end of the arbor, I saw a single blossom from the honeysuckle bush we planted there a few years ago. It had survived the harsh winter, and the color was stunning.
Pulling the iPhone from my pocket, I snapped the picture below. No camera can capture the nuance of texture and color, but even a sad rendition is beautiful.
Tonight my lovely spouse Jilda celebrates her 4-year blogging anniversary. Pop over and wish her a happy anniversary, and feel free to click the follow button there.
I hope you all have had a peaceful Easter weekend.

  3. Hope that beautiful bloom is a start of many to come! Take care

    1. Last year the arbor came to life with bloom from that little plant.

  4. Easter is about rebirth... and you got a lovely visual with the flower. How awesome is that???

  5. Our honey suckle are taking off once again. This year, they may actually reach the roof.
