The Tomb is Empty

Azaleas at Schloss Bodissey

Happy Easter, everyone! I just got in from church, so it will take me a little while to get back up to speed.

Easter is very late this year, only one day earlier than the latest possible date. As a result, the flowers on the altar included azalea, scotch broom, bluebells, and dogwood — an unusual combination for an Easter arrangement, where daffodils are generally to be expected.

On the way home I saw irises blooming — irises! At Easter! — and the azaleas are in full bloom here at Schloss Bodissey, as you can see from the photo above.

It’s very hot, too: 90°F (32°C). Two days ago it was wintry, almost cold enough to snow.

All this climate change — it’s George Bush’s fault.

In hoc signo vinces†

And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.
