May brings forth everything!

A couple weeks ago I posted "one of my favorite spring sights." Here are the other two (making them my top 3). When they've all appeared I know spring is truly, truly here to stay. Now if the temps would only settle down into a consistent 60 or so!

The tree in the center of the library courtyard is pure white for two weeks a year.
Drop dead gorgeous. Here it is from the library windows.

The two bleeding heart plants in the inner courtyard bloomed this week,
I mean the hearts themselves finally dropped. Another gorgeous sight.

Otherwise things are going along well in this Easter season. Our spring visitors are arriving every weekend. Last weekend we had 5, yes 5, of the blood sisters of one of our sisters here. They were delightful....it was like having 5 clones of her around all the time: voices, mannerisms, laughs, everything. Great fun.

This weekend leaders in the L'Arche movement will be with us. Nice group to have, too. Some weekend retreats of our own are also going on this month, so we're all in our best hospitality mode! And, finally, our own vacation times are just beginning as some of our sisters are on a couple weeks of long-awaited vacation, now that the nicer weather has appeared and travel is a bit more doable/less risky. Hope they're having a wonderful time!
