Our garden has come back to life with a riot of colours: pinks, purples, yellows and green. Our majestic magnolia stands out, a bridegroom, dressed head to toe in white. These photos were taken yesterday after the Agape Service for Pascha.

Christos Anesti. Alithos Anesti.

Nature bows before Christ and rejoices in his resurrection. For our little family, it’s a reminder that for “everything there is a season.” We are thawing out, stretching our limbs and minds. And rejoicing in the arrival of Spring.
