Spring Unfolds

Golden daffodils with orange trumpets
unfold their sunshine petals
for all to see

Wild anemone raise their heads above last year's fallen leaves

Primroses, tender violets and a single daisy
draw our attention to the shady spots

and fluffy blossom trees line the streets

Down by the lake,
the early magnolia bloom

framed by nurturing branches and a perfect clear March sky

Closer to home,
Easter is being celebrated
with traditional hot cross buns

and the yellow duckling guards the baskets of tiny truffle filled eggs...
but not for too long, methinks!

  4. Happy Easter, Sandra! Thank you for your visit the other day. I finally got around to reply. :)
    Wow, I've not seen anemone before and just how gorgeous are they! I LOVE the colour. Are those in your garden perhaps or maybe on some country lane? Lovely photos. DAffodils are jsut so bright and happy too-- my fave flower.

    I had a huge smile in my heart when I saw those hot cross buns. I see that that tradition remains with you in Switzerland. It's been decades since Ive had those.

    I'll stop by again, later. Here's wishing you a lovely day.

    1. Michael, Swiss people don't know hot cross buns, but I'm English so I've brought my childhood traditions with me here! I agree that those wild anemone, seen here in town, are very charming! Thank you for your visit and your wishes.

    1. Well, Lisa, spring is being a little moody and blowing hot and cold, but I'm out when the sun graces us with its presence and enjoy all the flowers and birdsong!

  6. Love all the yellows and blues (almost periwinkle) in this post, right down to the tiny embroidered chick in that last photo. All so pleasant to look at.

    1. Well Gina, it seems to me that the magnolia is rather earlier than usual. These were seen down by the lake and they were not yet all in full bloom, still lots of buds. Luckily, I am not the only one eating these little eggs. They are so darned 'moreish'!

  11. Oh, those wild anemones....

    Winter is tussling with Spring here in Wisconsin. At the moment Winter's on top, but I know Spring will eventually win the match. Then we'll have flowers too. :)

    Happy Easter, Sandra!

  13. What a beautiful post! I love the little baskets, which I'm sure by now are quite empty! Spring is looking especially wonderful in Switzerland! We've pasted the early bushes and bulbs that bloom and are now preparing for the azaleas to pop open with color! Enjoy your day!
