Sunlit Sunday



It's Saturday evening. The day between. The house is spic and span clean. In the fridge rests the Black Forest Torte, its imperfections covered with whipped cream and chocolate. Tomorrow morning, before church, the ham and scalloped potatoes will go into the oven (or slow cooker). 


There was a little time to go outside and enjoy the sunshine while picking weeds. In the center of a lupine leaf sits a droplet of water.


The bleeding heart planted last summer is blooming already. Very appropriate for this Easter season, as it reminds me of Christ's death and suffering on my behalf. And then tomorrow...what joy! Resurrection Sunday, full of hope and amazement.

There will be lots of commotion here tomorrow. Not just for Easter, but also a birthday, a significant one, for Tim to celebrate. The Black Forest Torte was his request.

Happy Easter! 

And so concludes the Sunlit Sunday link up for this year. Many thanks to Karen of My Little Home and Garden for hosting.

  23. I have a bleeding heart in my garden and I am so excited! My daughter in law gave it to me last year and it bloomed very well. I'm looking forward to it growing more this year. It is so lovely.

    The cake looks amazing!

  24. Three gorgeous photos - you hardly need to write a word, but I'm glad you did, so that I know what kind of torte that delicious-looking thing is; and I wouldn't have recognized the lupine leaf in its simple elegance with water drop. Wow. The bleeding heart is so nice to see again... I did have one for a couple of years but it's really not cold enough for them to live well here.

    Happy Easter!

  27. The cake looks totally yummy! Since some of our family doesn't eat ham we had leg of lamb; but once in the while ham sounds soooo good with scalloped potatoes. Love your bleeding hearts too.
