Magnolia Bud

Magnolia Bud

The day before we explored Landis with a lens, a windy rainstorm came through, dumping sheets of driving of rain. As I took a photo of the Magnolias from a distance, I realized it was a lost cause, as so many blossoms were spent and on the ground. A closer look discovered this bud, still wrapped tightly, and showing off its beautiful shade of pink.

After a “damp” hike through the woods, we wandered out to the gardens near the main entrance at Landis Arboretum. Some beautiful blooms were picture ready, and I didn’t even need to stand in the mud!

Easter Lamb

Since we had a family dinner on Saturday, Easter Sunday was free and clear. A road trip to Old Sturbridge Village was a pleasant diversion. Not too much traffic, a beautiful day, and a happy ending with my first soft ice cream cone of the year. We had hoped to see a little more color, but the flowers weren’t out and about yet. Instead, we were greeted by several baby lambs (I think that’s redundant). Most of the lambs were exploring, but this little one was settled down to a nap.
