Easter Weekend Post

Hi Everybody!

Here's wishing you all a happy weekend, and a happy Easter to all who celebrate it! It's turned cold and grey here, but I'm sure an Easter walk will still be possible, even if I don't go looking for eggs!

For the new theme at AJJ, where Erika and Chris are hosting in memory of Eileen, I have a digital journal page inspired by spring:



It's spring here in our little town, too:









Flowers at the Town Hall:



The market by the Rhine:









Have a great weekend, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  2. Your spring and Easter inspired page is beautiful Valerie. I can see by your photos that inspiration isn't far off. Your trees are definitely ahead of the ones here, but it won't be long. Let's hope we both get nice walking weather this weekend. Hugs-Erika

  9. It's a lovely illustration of Spring, so fresh and green and colourful in a not too loud way. I see the bunny and the duck are having a nice chat.
    Your town always looks so clean and tidy with lots of interesting things and architecture to look at.

  10. Spring bloomed on your page and in your little town. I always love the way people decorate their window boxes. I don't have much of a green thumb, but might be able to keep those cute wooden flowers blooming. Have a beautiful weekend.

    1. Tanks CJ. I never get my balcony boxes to look as good as these, I evidently don't have a green thumb either! Wooden flowers would last longer! Happy Easter!

  12. Spring is firmly ensconced here, Valerie, and despite a couple of colder than normal days, it continues on undeterred by overnight frost and temperatures that struggled to breach zero during the day. This morning it is bright and sunny and we are supposed to reach about eight degrees, so, quite pleasant for early April. We don't celebrate Easter, and I would imagine that during COVID even those who do have had their plans seriously impaired. Two years ago today I was in Panama, and I have not left the country since that vacation. Two years without travel has never happened during my entire adult life, not even one year in fact. Such is the influence of this damn pandemic! Stay well, have a good weekend, walk outside if you can! Hugs and kisses. David

    1. Hi David! It's much colder here today, too, but the sun is shining and it was pleasant walking outside. I noticed as I went past the Basilica that they have placed the 'stations of the cross' outside around the square, a good idea for those who want to observe the customs. I haven't been outside of a 10 kilometer radius since Covid began, it really is strange! Perhaps one day we can travel in freedom again! Till then we have to stay home and enjoy our memories! Hae a great weekend, stay safe, hugs to you both!

  15. Your lovely journal page really shows that spring is on the way. It's a truly lovely page of which Eileen would have approved. Thanks for the beautiful entry, dear.

    I love how your town decorates for spring. The window boxes are always my favorite, but I love it all, including the market and the architecture. Happy, happy Easter, dear.

  26. An absolutely gorgeous piece of artwork Valerie and so very evocative of Spring. Not quite here this weekend as it's really cold!
    Lovely photos too as always and I'm really going to try to get back into blogging again as I feel so sheepish about being away for so long (lots of reasons I won't go into!)
    Hope you've had a lovely Easter and that you're ok at the moment.

  32. Love the happy feel of your art - reminds me of you always out observing nature and adventuring. Your pictures are wonderful too - so pretty and great to see Spring popping up everywhere.

    The pollen here is so bad that we have all developed sinus infections - I had one so bad this week I went and got a Covid test just to make sure. It was negative but I am telling you I really thought I had it! Feeling a bit better now.

    Many hugz and happy Spring to you.
