Almost like a painting, reflection and colorful

- Such a serene spot, and for it me it always signals that my walk at the park near work is 3/4 done.  It almost looks like a painting, I think.  And there is a marked difference from a photo taken in the same spot almost a month ago.

- You would have to click to enlarge to really see that house across the creek.  I like that it is reflected in the creek below.  I do not remember seeing this house on previous walks in the park and think that it is either new or growth has been cleared from around it.  They sure have a great view from those back windows.

- A Maundy Thursday service in a friend's home.  Everyone brought food for the dinner before and the highlight was truly this wonderful colorful Easter cake that friend Mary and her 6-year-old daughter Isabella made.  Bella was so excited about cutting it to show the layers of color inside.  And it was delicious.

I hope that you are well and happy today.  Have a lovely weekend!

Ahhh, that cake looks wonderful! How much fun for Isabella.

Maybe aliens planted that house there overnight? :)

Jannie -

Hello Jannie Muffin! I think that might have happened - the alien planting. :)

And her mom said the batter was separated out and each bowl of batter was given separate coloring, then poured on top of each other, making layered colors. So cute!

Your photo/painting is very like a painting which hangs in my bedroom. I went into an art gallery to stay warm on a work trip, saw the painting and fell in love.
The cake looks exceptional too.
Have a great weekend.

Isn't it wonderful to suddenly be embraced by so much beautiful green forest and creeks then to top it off with colorful cake?

Sara said...

You should that top picture, enlarge and get it framed. It really a pretty picture. The difference between the one you took earlier is pretty amazing. When Spring decides to show her colors, she does it well. I loved many shades of green:~)

The cake does look yummy and like a giant Easter egg:~)

Happy Easter, Lynn!

It's astounding what nature can do in a few short weeks. The popping out of all the green makes me so happy. :)

Happy Easter to you! Loved your Easter post. :)
