From 5th Avenue To Alabam'

Spring is in the air somewhere, I know it's wishful thinking on my part that Winter has departed, but it is time to don our Easter bonnets!!

Taylor Hicks wherever you are laying your hat this Easter, I hope the sun is shining and the birds are singing ... I know you would be the grandest in any parade!


To all my visitors here at the 'Pond', I hope you enjoy my fun Easter page!


It's that Hippity Hoppin' Season
when the air is fresh and pleasin!
The frostiness is leavin'
and the ice no longer freezin'.


The sun is waking up the grass.
The lakes are mirrors just like glass.
Birds are winging home at last.
And Spring is sprung, the Winter's Past.


Renewal, rebirth is in the air.
Wild flowers are bloomin' everywhere.
Perfumes sweet nothing can compare,
And Spring Fevers something
we all share.


Yes, it's that hippity hoppin' season
when the wind is barely breathin'.
Whispering and breezin'
through the woods
and fields it's easin'.


Listen, hear me, come along
Rising, growing, free and strong.
Dancing, thriving, Hey!
You too belong
to this magic hour,
This Springtime Song!

These two great videos from 'Easter Parade'
will make you want to get up and dance!

Loaded with soul :-)

It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul."

Happy Easter from the Pond!

Speaking of Judy Garland, this weekend at The Judy Garland Experience on Yahoo there will be a listening party for what they are purporting to be Judy's "lost album."
To hear these ultra rare (and more) tracks please visit The Judy Garland Experience, the world's largest and most exciting Garland Group.

Bloom, I do know that the calendar says it is Easter - Judy and Fred are dancing and singing but somehow I am just hoping that there is some Spring under the snow.

A very different Easter it is this year but it is wonderful to hear the birds at your pond and smell the flowers as they bloom!

Happy Easter to you and all of your visitors!

I remember our parade of beautiful hats, as we strolled through the restaurant with 'Easter Parade' playing. That was so much fun, you are always so creative and Jennnifer's shower was one of the funnest I have ever attended.
Thanks for sharing your blog with me, brought back some really great memories and I am starting my day with a big smile!
Happy Easter to everyone!

Hi Buzz thanks for visiting and for the info!
I'll be sure to check it out.

Karin you must think Spring!
Even though the weather tells us otherwise, if you convince yourself that's it's here it will lighten your heart.

It's one of the reasons I decorate for Easter, all of the beautiful pastel colors lift the gloom and make me think of my garden in full bloom!

Hi there Teri, good to hear that you now have a Spring In Your Step ... it's hard to watch the videos and not feel like dancing ... they just make you feel grand!

Donna I love a Parade ... lol especially one I don't have to watch wrapped in blankets!

Speaking of blankets, I'll be thinking of you wondering if your Easter eggs are buried in snow lol

Hello catinthehat knew I'd get you to visit my Taylor site with this one lol

Jen's shower was a blast and probably one of my most creative events ... now I'm thinking on how to top that one, cause it will be time for Autumn's before I know it!
