My Mom loved Easter Lily's. She made sure she got one every year, and planted them in front of the house in-between the shrubs. After years of this ritual, every Spring it was the beautiful white lily's highlighting the green shrubs. It really was a beautiful spring show. The story of the Easter Lily is simple. White is the purity of Christ - no sin. The shape is the trumpet - sounding the message of the risen Christ, and the bulbs are buried 3 years before they bloom - representing the rebirth, hope and resurrection of Christ. I have never planted bulbs. When you move, you have to dig them up to take them with you or leave all your work behind. My Mom never moved. They were a landmark. I do not want to say how many times I have moved...but this year I want an Easter Lily, and I want to plant it! I think it is time.
That being said, I popped my hip out Saturday and I am having a time with it. I got up this morning doing pretty good, but Tim almost had to place me in bed last night. So much to do this week, and I fear I will be on a heating pad by this afternoon. So my peeps...I am taking the Resurrection Week off! May you all have a very blessed week and a wonderful Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday! Celebrate!
Stay Safe, Stay Healthy, Stay Sane, Stay Happy!
