Cherry Blossoms in the Rain

“For I remember it is Easter morn,
and life and love and peace are all new born.”
~ Alice Freeman Palmer (1855-1902), the first female college president

My friend Janice sent me a two-word text message last night: “Magic hour.” She lives in the mountains and I knew the sun must be low in her sky, creating beautiful light for taking photographs.

Here in Denver it was overcast and drizzling, but her message inspired me to stop cooking and head outside with the camera. I’m so glad I did, because otherwise I would have missed the chance to see the cherry blossoms in the rain.

“I think of the garden after the rain;
and hope to my heart comes singing,
At morn the cherry-blooms will be white,
and the Easter bells be ringing!”
~ Edna Dean Proctor, Easter Bells

Wishing you a beautiful Easter—and perhaps, a quiet moment to pause and experience spring’s miraculous rebirth,

P.S. Thanks to my friend and photographer extraordinaire Povy Kendal Atchison, who first sent me the Alice Freeman Palmer quote.
