Scenes from my country Easter





 I loved my Easter Holiday. We attended the Easter Sunrise Service at church. Butterfly decorations were used in the Sanctuary and live butterflies were released during the service. The weather was beautiful and so was the ceremony.



Roses adorned the cross.


The rest of my weekend was spent at my childhood home. My sisters and I took 2 tours around the property that day. Both were lazy, slow drives and I was able to take lots of pictures.

 We checked on the progress of a camp house my nieces and nephews were building.


We checked on the cows to make sure all of them were where they were supposed to be, and not in the neighbor's pasture.


This butterfly loved my sister.



We startled a deer in the woods and she stood very still, allowing me to take her picture.We also saw a raccoon, 3 armadillos, a hawk, and a very long, fast snake.


As the sun began to set, an airplane caught our attention by reflecting the last of the light.

This was such a nice way to enjoy our time together.

What a lovely Easter. Loved the flower cross at the church. Do you remember the year that we did the butterflies in my Sunday School class and then released them? I think that was also the year that we had that weird swarm of bees hanging from the side of the Sunday School wing. A weird combination of beautiful, graceful nature and scary, buzzing nature!!

Thanks for sharing your beautiful pics!
