Mother Nature provided us an April Fool’s joke.
Spring snow. That is Upstate New York. Our
daffodils shivered in the cold, windy garden.
Tis’ Easter season with ladies wearing
their finery and Easter bonnets of all
colors decorated with flowers. New
shoes and winter coats. What? Our
apple tree sports big plastic eggs
blowing in the chilly wind. We brave
the weather and put on a happy
face. Customs and traditions. Off
to church we go! Our Dad took
photos of his wife and four daughters.
These days, some ladies wear hats for
Easter. Smaller scale. Less flowers.
The lilacs and forsythia bushes have
buds and will open soon despite
Mother Nature’s gift and humor.
Hope springs eternal. Hope
overcomes the cold and snow.
Easter joy remains in our hearts.
