Easter Sunday - Alleluia

A glorious warm Easter Day. Outside of the church were these baskets of flowers for the children to "flower the cross." Is this a tradition that any of you are familiar?

Flowering the cross is something I remember from my childhood - on Easter morning, children bring flowers to place on a cross covered with chicken wire. These flowers are pink perfection camellias, knockout roses, hydrangeas and somehow some silk tulips became a part of the arrangement (pretty though!) The flowers that we usually place on the cross are long gone - azaleas.

Now.... I must go walk. A new season.. new life.. Alleluia!
Special Note: New image for the great 50 days is on the page to replace the Lenten one.
