HE IS RISEN!



Happy Easter.

Orange Mint in the kitchen window, what a delightful fragrance!



Lunch will be in the carport.



Like the "Easter Grass? Can you tell what it is?
No? You'd have to be a knowledgeable horticulturist to get it right.
Maybe I should let you guess a little, go ahead knock yourselves out.
Betcha can't do it.


How do you like our dining room? It is 2 work horses and a piece of plywood with a king size quilt on it and then another quilted table cloth that has been spilled on plenty, kiddie cornered. It was supposed to rain. We did manage to eat dinner outside and just as we went in the rain came down in torrents.

We had a new family over today from Washington state. They are in the coffee roasting business. They brought their espresso machine over and a carrot cake. We had lattes made from freshly roasted beans for desert. I thought the rapture had happened. I am so easy to please really I am. Just make the perfect setting with great food, good company, and divine coffee with desert.

I cannot fail to mention that this Sunday is also the best day of the year for a believer. If Jesus had not raised from the dead then we of all men would be the most pitiful, and our sins would not be forgiven. But He did rise. He is ALIVE and coming again soon. We know He lives because we have experienced Him in our lives. He was seen by more than 500 witnesses. Rumors of feigned death? Ridiculous, Roman soldiers were in the business of killing. Anyone who has seen death often knows it when they see it. I see it, being sick and being dead are whole worlds apart.
Blood and water spilled from his side, a drink offering poured out, that none of us would ever thirst again for the relief we need. We thirst to be filled, to be whole, to be healed, to be cleansed, to be connected. Connected
to the living resurrected Christ.
He is risen indeed!

OMG I am easily impressed with food as well! Sounds like an exquisite meal...in the carport of course!

Everything looks so perfect. Very Country Home, I love it. The table looks great and I really like the quaintness of the mismatched chairs.

My guess on the Easter Grass is Scotch Broom but I haven't ever looked at it up close.

Happy Resurrection Sunday.

I love that you were able to eat outdoors, and your decorations are beautiful, as usual.

The "grass" reminds me of dill, but I've not seen any personally.

I have no idea about the grass. Something from the seashore?

We have used our carport for party meals several times when the weather gods have been against us :-)

Lovely post. The table looks beautiful. Dill?

That greenery looks like those sticky things my dad had in his garden. Kind of like tiny green beans. But because of where I'll have to guess it's seaweed LOL

Lovely table! Sounds like you had a F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S Easter meal and dessert.

As for the "weed" that you have decorated your basket with . . . I've come up dry. I would guess from the prolific pods that it is a "noxious" weed and I know I have seen it, but have no answer. I first thought broom and then indigo, but don't think either of those are correct. Can't wait to hear the answer and then say, "Of course!"

Happy Easter! He is Risen!! (Wish you could have joined us for the simple feast -- it was fabulous!)

Singing praises that Matthew has returned to his sweet self. Lots of hugs and kisses and dancing -- life is good! : D

OMGoodness...that top HUGE photo of the arrangement up close with the blue fabric around it is GORGEOUS!!!!

Heidi said...

I have MISSED YOU! Have no clue about the grass... is it fennel of some sort?

I love your table! It is so beautiful! Perfect. Ecclectic Country : ). That is what I would call it!

Easter is a special day! I am so glad HE is risen!
