Happy Easter

Happy Easter.
I hope you are all enjoying your weekend.

Me, I'm staying at my sister's
with her family.

It's been dull most of the day
here in Cumbria.
But the sun did get out eventually at about five o'clock.

So me and my sister took ourselves off for a walk.
What a difference,
there's actually flowers blooming outside.
When did they appear?
Daffodils and tulips flowering together.
I seem to think that the daffodils usually arrive before the tulips.

I always like to stop and look back at this row of cottages.

And then stop a bit further up the hill
and look over towards the east.

Lovely blue sky.
Maybe you can just see a bit of snow over there on the Pennines.

Earlier in the week
we took ourselves off into the Lake District
just after it had been snowing.
I'll have to show you the photos I took.
So pretty.

Meanwhile here are two photos
that I took of a window display in Keswick.
I always take the opportunity to visit this shop when I can.

And until I get back to show you those photos,
do help yourself to a chocolate
or two.
These are all the way from Germany.
I just didn't get round to
posting them here before I left.

Happy Easter Lynne! You take the most marvelous photographs. Such pretty flowers. Our jonquils are blooming but the tulips have not opened yet. The shop display is so nice and those chocolates look heavenly. I lived on chocolate when we visited Germany! Enjoy your visit. The views that you shared are beautiful. You should join Shadow Shot Sunday's group of photographers. The info is two posts back on my blog.
