Happy Easter!

 If the Magic Easter Tree is blooming, it must be Easter!  This is a dogwood tree in my friend Beth's backyard (in Sacramento, California -- sorry to all of you who are still walking on frozen ground!), and it somehow manages to bloom just in time for Easter every year, no matter whether Easter is in March or April.  It's magic, clearly, hence our name for it.  

The little baby blossoms are exquisite, dainty little cups that seem to open a bit more every minute.  I can't seem to stop taking pictures of them.

There are other flowers blooming the yard too -- here's a gorgeous camellia that makes me think of strawberry swirl ice cream. 

I'm here to help Beth for a few days as she recovers from foot surgery.  So she is sitting with her foot propped up high, and I'm fetching things and plumping pillows and bringing medications on schedule.  Today we got her set up on the back porch so we could enjoy the lovely day while we chatted and poked around on our screened devices.  This is the sort of nursing I like. 

How lovely to be able to just sit and soak up Spring!
