Spring comes to Colorado with days of sunny warmth followed by nights of frost and snow. It is too unpredictable to plant, but the longer hours of daylight still brings flowers to the landscape non-the-less. The trees blossom and bulbs burst forth. The hardy wildflowers begin to bloom and even cacti in the foothills come alive again.
Our community has an annual Easter Egg Hunt every year, so it is always fun to see our oldest granddaughter, who lives near us, attend this event every year. This year she was so excited to see the Easter Bunny she leaped into its arms!
Last year--click here to see that post--we had snow on the ground during the Easter Egg Hunt, but this year we had a pleasant day in the high 60's. The beautiful weather brought out many children and there was a wild rush to collect eggs in the two to four year old group. It was very exciting for the little ones!
We are hoping we can hold Grandma's and Pop Pop's egg hunt at our house for all our grandchildren outside this year, too, as every year before we had to do it inside. Again, we can not predict what the spring weather will be in April.
One thing for sure is that I will be busy this week shopping and cooking and preparing for Easter dinner at our house. The collage above shows some of the food I prepared last Easter.
It is always joyous for our family to celebrate together!
"I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me will live, even though he dies."
Wishing you a very Happy and Blessed Easter!
