Scrap that Poetry

Appologies for not having posted this a little sooner, but as Murphy's Law would dictate....It's the school holidays, so all three children have been sick!
That is our challenge #12 poem over at

An Easter Flower Gift
John Greenleaf Whittier Poem
O dearest bloom the seasons know,
Flowers of the Resurrection blow,
Our hope and faith restore;
And through the bitterness of death
And loss and sorrow, breathe a breath
Of life forevermore!
The thought of Love Immortal blends
With fond remembrances of friends;
In you, O sacred flowers,
By human love made doubly sweet,
The heavenly and the earthly meet,
The heart of Christ and ours.

Here is my take on our 1st poem for this month.  The photo I chose to use is one I took in my garden this year in late Spring.  Or driveway is lined with beautiful Weeping Apricot and Cherry trees and this little speciman is a double pink blossom, which makes a really pretty display.

The verse I chose to include  from the poem is
"In you, O sacred flowers,

By human love made doubly sweet,"
and I used my Kaisercraft mini stickers to add them onto my layout. 

Hope your Easter has been filled with much love and a chance to celebrate with has ours, and of course not to mention truck loads of choccie goodess!!!!
Take care & Bye for now xxx
