Celebrating Easter in Photos

I am looking forward to celebrating Easter with my family this weekend and still so pleased I got out of hospital in time to recover nicely ready for the holiday. Rose will be home and I can't wait to see her and have her around again. The only thing I could wish for at the moment is some of that lovely Easter sunshine we can sometimes get at this time of year. I was looking out on the garden at weekend and most of it was just a blizzard and I couldn't help but think of last March when I was enjoying the spring flowers in the garden and reading books and sunning myself up in the summerhouse. Those thoughts got me reminiscing about previous Easters we have enjoyed; we always spend some of Easter in the Lake District and sometimes we have escaped the disappointing Great British weather elsewhere. I ended up browsing through some of our old photos and this gave me a real lift and I thought I'd share some with you all, as I think we could all do with a bit of Easter sunshine to cheer us up. I don't think I'm on my own in wishing this coldest March ever is soon over with! Enjoy the photo show!

So you can find sunshine and flowers at Easter, but sometimes it's better just to cheat if you can and escape to warmer climes! I would just like to wish all my blog readers a very happy Easter wherever you are and hope you enjoy the holiday whatever the weather. 

Easter is significant in that it symbolises new life and as I write this blog I have now been waiting for my chance of a new life for 555 days. So if you are reflecting on Easter and want to make a pledge and do a good deed, consider signing up to be an organ donor or just help us mobilise the Government into action by signing the petition to make them discuss the 'opt- out' organ donor scheme.
