Good Friday - enjoying the loving company of special friends and sharing bread (hot cross buns) and wine.
The girls painted.
Easter Saturday - we made the long walk up to the Healesville tower where we scattered rose petals and remembered my sister, as well as all those people that lost their lives in the fires. The mist gently covered the surrounding countryside, much of which had been burnt. I didn't take my camera, but one of the lasting images of this Easter for me was a tiny fern frond poking up through the blackened earth; there was a real sense of hope here today, and the town of Healesville was filled with people enjoying life in the Autumn sunshine.
In the afternoon and dyed eggs for our Easter table.
Sunday morning, of course Easter Bunny had paid his magical visit. My 8 year old was sure she had heard his "bouncing" during the night....he certainly had bounced around our garden.
And Sunday afternoon we share more good company with friends and a traditional lamb roast.
I am feeling full (in many ways) and grateful; hope your Easter was special for you.
