Mosaic Monday #35 Pastel Spring Colours

On this beautiful Easter Monday I am thankful for the pastel colours of spring. As bulbs are just starting to poke out of the ground now in my gardens the photos are from previous years.
The buds are not swelling yet but I anticipate their break of dormancy very soon.
April showers bring May flowers...shades of pinks and purples are my favourite spring and summer flower colours.
April Rain 
The April rain, the April rain, 
Comes slanting down in fitful showers, 
Then from the furrow shoots the grain, 
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers; 
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers 
The cuckoo through the April rain 
Calls once again. 

The April sun, the April sun, 
Glints through the rain in fitful splendour, 
And in grey shaw and woodland dun 
The little leaves spring forth and tender 
Their infant hands, yet weak and slender, 
For warmth towards the April sun, 
One after one. 

And between shower and shine hath birth 
The rainbow's evanescent glory; 
Heaven's light that breaks on mists of earth! 
Frail symbol of our human story, 
It flowers through showers where, looming hoary, 
The rain-clouds flash with April mirth, 
Like Life on earth.

    Wonderful way of connect between the lyrics and images of Spring blooms...
    Happy Holidays, Paศ™te Fericit! Happy Easter!

  10. Gorgeous photos in your mosaics this morning Judith! Wow. I can't wait for some colour. We had more snow on Saturday, a mini blizzard, so it' a white world still. The poem is beautiful too. I guess we need to be patient for spring weather here in the east. Have a great week.

  17. I did at first think you had buds coming out already, and wondered how that could be!! I do have a few sprouts of bleeding hearts coming up through the ground, but nothing on the trees yet. I love the mosaic photos you chose for today. Blue flowers are so special. Although the snow was flying around yesterday, I was glad it didn't stick! I loved the springtime poem, and hope it all happens here soon.

  44. I adore your mosaic with the crabapple, flowering almond, pansy, etc. Pinks and purples are my favorite garden colors too. I LOVE your new blog design, Judith! I liked it before too, but changing things up once in awhile is not a bad thing. I like the header pics. Hugs and blessings, Beth
