I hate to mention this, but did you realize there is a typo in the haiga? You have "past" instead of "fast." I love the flowers! Lucky you, we're back down to temperatures in the 20s today.

Have a great Sunday, Gillena!

Sanaa Rizvi said...

Beautiful flowers accompanied by an equally beautiful poem :D
Happy Sunday Gillena :D

Lots of love,
Sanaa

Ah yes....at this time of year the blossoms DO lead to the crown of thorns; but we have to keep looking forward, as after the crossof thorns resurrection follows.

As a child, I could never understood why the day of crucifixion was called "good." Somewhere along the line I began to see that Roman 8:28 is a key that unlocks many of life's mysteries!

Old Egg said...

I must say that your crown of thorns is a more robust plant than what we have in Canada.
Easter Blessings to you.
