Happy Easter, Dulcie, with gratitude for the outstanding calla lilies. Lo, and I see them as trinitarian :) Fringes edged slightly red make these pulse so vibrantly, very touching. So much better than an Easter basket, but I admit I miss the old family traditions. What stellar offerings you make on the behalf of all of us who need this beautiful showing each day. You are MY kind of artist this Easter Morn, and I did not go to the top of the mt. this year. We met B. on this day years ago, too, we talk about that every Eastertime. (key word "have brunched" on my comment box!!! how appropos, my dear :)
