Evie, Evie, how does your garden grow?

Look at the size of those sunflowers already! Keep the pictures coming, Evie-May, so we can see how your plants are getting on.

What a lovely picture, showing Jesus rising again on Easter morning. Easter reminds us that no matter how dark the road may seem, there always lies light at the end of it. An important message for us all at the moment.
Thank you, Lilly, for using your talents to give us a beautiful opportunity to reflect and to hope...
