This is an Easter Egg Emu Bush that is in bloom in the front yard.
A close-up of the flowers.
We are celebrating with our friends today. We are dividing up the cooking, as we do on a lot of holidays. They will be arriving in a few hours. We are fortunate to have such great, long-time friends here in Sun City Grand. We all met years ago when we all flew gliders at Caesar Creek Soaring Club.
We wish we could be with our son and daughter-in-law (and grandpuppy, of course). I have to go to work tomorrow, and I have limited vacation time. That is the real reason for wanting to be a retiree. I love my job, but it is so hard to be away from family at the holidays.
But of course we are not the only ones away from family. Many people are separated for many different reasons. I hope you are all able to spend time with your family today, whether they are your first family or your adopted one.
Happy Easter to All
