The Queensland firewheel tree flowers at this time of year. At the moment the flowers at the top of this tall thin tree are colouring up. I'm waiting for the ones on the lower branches so I can show you this very interesting flower. I thought a cockatoo might conveniently snip one off for me but only Bowerbirds seem to be enjoying the tree at the moment. I love to hear their happy song.
Easter Saturday is a day of waiting too -- waiting between the drama of Good Friday and the joy of Easter Sunday.
Luke 23:55-56 (New International Version)
The women who had come with Jesus from Galilee followed Joseph and saw the tomb and how his body was laid in it. 56Then they went home and prepared spices and perfumes. But they rested on the Sabbath in obedience to the commandment.
