Six word Saturday


A hope for peace and harmony

Each morning the beauty of the sky greets us

Each morning, the beauty of the sky awaits us

Unasked, the flowers turn their faces up to us

Unasked, the flowers turn their faces up

With all their shy beauty

With all their shy beauty



And delicacy

And delicacy

Each year they awaken and delight

Each year they awaken, to delight

Peeping out of their pots

Peeping out of their flowerpots

Or maybe we've brought them inside to enjoy

Or maybe we’ve brought some inside, to enjoy

Before the sun sets

Before the sun sets

With maybe just a hint of rain

With, maybe, just a hint of rain

And drains the colour from our world

Before the colour drains from our world

It is so simple, isn’t it?  So beautiful.

My wish for you at Easter is peace and love, with not too many raindrops. (and certainly no more snow for my Stateside friends!)

I almost forgot to link to Cate at Show My Face.  Even on Easter Saturday you can still share your six words.  Happy Easter!




  1. The Spring … how wonderful isn’t it … and even a spring rain is forgiven. Absolutely beautiful this post – your words and photos, what a wonderful combination.

    1. Today was another warm day. No coat! So strange, but in a nice way. 🙂 Yesterday grey and teeming rain all day, so today everything grows like crazy. Magical time of the year. In love with blossom 🙂

      1. We had a bit of summer .. over Easter, but it gone a bit chilly again – easy to get use to .. the sunshine and heat.
        Had some quite rain drops yesterday.
        This is a truly magical time .. I wouldn’t be able to live where there was no seasons. Love them all when they come when they are suppose to come. *smile
        Spring hug.

    1. Thanks, Dianne. They’re all fed and watered and I’m just indulging in a glass of red before I take to the bath with a book. Sounds ok, doesn’t it? Hope you had a nice one. 🙂

    1. Easter Sunday is a bit as predicted but I’m busy cooking, etc. so not too bothered. Indulging myself with a return to Barca and planning tomorrow’s walk, in spare moments 🙂 No eggs so far 😦

  2. What gorgeous views Jo and the flowers are just too beautiful for words! I love the colours! You must have a great weekend hon and thanks for sharing these stunning photo’s. 😀 ♥ Big Hugs ♥

      1. Thanks Jo and you must enjoy your Easter. I don’t believe in the Easter bunny. Those chocolates are not good for me and luckily I don’t like choccies much. 😆

  3. A lovely celebration of a day, Easter or not. I love the raindrops: you’ve captured them amazingly. And also the interweaving of words and photos. Have you experienced a Polish Easter? My daughter was expecting liver-damage!

    My peace and harmony was a day of world-class music in an outdoor amphitheatre among the gum trees, and brief encounters with many friends.

    May we all have daily instalments of such delights, and the senses (and sense!) to notice them.

    1. I love the sound of your day, Meg 🙂 The first year that we went to Poland I was still working and could only manage a few days. I came home the day before the Easter celebrations began. My liver is gearing up for a Polish wedding though! Krakow looked magnificent with its kwiaty and corn dollies in the Rynek. I have some Polish eggs and candles that I brought back sitting on my hearth for Easter.
      Happy times and Easter blessings, Meg!

      1. also wanted to say that the little pink butterfly was one of my favorite things – so unexpected and just fun!!! but that last photo was such a nice ending – kind of wrapped up the post with a warm goodnight goodbye….

      1. even cooler – 🙂

        and this reminds me, a few years ago I had butterfly – it had some glitter on it – and it was from a flower arrangement. I stuck the long base in the ground near the mailbox – and it lasted it all season – amidst all the plants – and it really did “live on” –

  4. So awesome. All images are gorgeous. A homage to spring!
    Happy Easter to you and your entire family!
    With friendship, Ştefania! 🙂

      1. That was funny Jo…yes a blowtorch and it’s extended family please.
        Yes in Calgary with our gang coming and going this weekend. Lovely to have these times together isn’t it?

  5. I feel so much peace, and harmony in each of your lovely captures. A most happiest of celebrations for you this Easter.

    1. I think you mean the little lemon coloured rhododendron, Ad? It doesn’t last long but it just started to open up this weekend. Hope you’re having a lovely family time 🙂

      1. Thought you might mean that one, Ad. Wait till I ask the oracle. I forget their names but it’s very pretty 🙂
        Sanguinairium! I had Ranunculus in my head but knew it wasn’t right. Phew! Pressure’s off 🙂

  6. Such beautiful photos. They certainly suggest a sense of tranquillity and peace – a wish I always have for our world filled with so much anger and restlessness.

    1. This restless person smiled at your comment, Colline 🙂 I’m always more peaceful when the sun shines. Shame it doesn’t seem to affect everyone that way. Have a lovely time with your family.

  7. Beautiful, Jo! Happy Easter to you and your family. We have heavy rain this Saturday before Easter, but hope to clear out by tomorrow. If not, I’ll just look at your lovely photos again. 🙂

    1. Aw, thanks, Jill 🙂 We’ve had a heap of sunshine these 2 days but I think the rain’s set to get us tomorrow. No worries. I’ll still smile. Happy Easter, hon.
