Sunlit Sunday and the Lilacs are out at last.

Sunlit Sunday

I love noticing shots for sunlit Sunday.
It gives me a great feeling to see something with the sun highlighting something of beauty.

Walked into my kitchen the other morning and saw this shadow of a hanging basket on our deck reflected on the refrigerator.
There was one pansy still hanging on in spite of the cold weather.
Today is The Octave of Easter in the Catholic liturgy.

The term Octave of Easter may refer either to the eight day period (Octave) from Easter Sunday until the Sunday following Easter, inclusive; or it may refer only to that Sunday after Easter, the Octave Day of Easter (sometimes known as Low Sunday). That Sunday is also known historically as St. Thomas Sunday (especially among Eastern Christians), Quasimodo Sunday and Quasimodogeniti. Since 1970 Low Sunday has been officially known as the Second Sunday of Easter (referring to the Easter season) in the Roman Catholic Church. On April 30, 2000, it was also designated as Divine Mercy Sunday by Pope John Paul II.

The lilacs are out.
I did not think it was gonna happen but it did.

Go here for more Sunlit Sunday

I can almost smell the lilacs! They are one of my favorite flowers, along with hydrangea and roses.
I like the shadow on your refrigerator too.
Happy Octave Easter.

We will have to wait a little longer for out lilacs, but it is my favourite flowering tree.

I knew nothing of Octave Sunday...interesting. Lovely lilacs and so different from those I have.

Hello, Peggy
I've learned something new, not having heard about Octave Sunday before today. Thanks for bringing the sunny pattern (such a neat fridge door) and the gorgeous lilacs. With the on-again, off-again weather, I hope mine make a show later this spring. Thanks for linking to Sunlit Sunday.

I like Sunlit Sunday, of course I like all sunlit days. Lilacs are wonderful in fragrance and beauty. I need one in my yard.

Your lilacs are just beautiful! If I use my imagination, I can almost smell them through the screen.
