A Canopy of Green

We had the most beautiful Easter weekend!  The garden area around my grandparents’ house (and where my GREAT-grandparents lived as well!), was lush with green and incredibly vibrant!  It’s hard to describe such a scene without using pictures… so I’ll use pictures 😉

We at a BBQ sandwich-style lunch with all the trimmings of coleslaw, potato salad, creamed corn ❤ , Bush’s baked beans… then hunted for eggs, and then played until nighttime.

It was simple and perfect.

The little stone statue (above) was given to my grandma by my mom probably over 20 years ago.  It was supposed to represent my brother and I.

The boys played with my mom with marshmallow shooters (like pea-shooters) 😀  It was fun!

It’s hard to get the full effect though, even from pictures, because in the front, the air was filled with the scent of Jasmine!  It was literally like breathing in heavenly scented, perfumed air!!!

Jasmine… jasmine everywhere!  In-between the roses, even!

I hope all you readers had an equally beautiful Easter Sunday!

I’m still in a kind of funk since the miscarriage… just totally not myself.  I was told it’s one of those things where you go through all the stages of grief.  It’s hard to feel like you’re grieving for something that is misunderstood, I confess, I really don’t even understand how to deal with it.  But enough about that… life is still so beautiful.  These are some pictures of a recent adventure we went on.
