Happy Easter

An Italian card wishing Buona Pasqua, Good (or Happy) Easter which I also wish everyone. Italian Easter Eggs tend to have sweets or a surprise inside and the surprise in this one must be the laughing baby. The sailor suited boy carries a bunch of flowers and the girl a basket, in which I guess are eggs.  The blossom on the tree is suggested above them
and the blossom can be seen here in flower at Yew Tree Farm in the English Lake District. 
Once the daffodils appear we know that spring is well on the way and here they are brightening up the Horton-in-Ribblesdale station on the scenic Settle to Carlisle railway line.  The small station building of 1876 was renovated in 2002 and the gardens are tended by volunteers.

Postcards for the Weekend theme -  spring, flower buds, blossom and green foliage - celebrate the season at Connections to the World.

Hi Joy, Nice selection of cards for this week’s theme. My favorite is the Horton-in-Ribblesdale station. However, the biggest smile comes from the vintage Italian card and the look on the face of the young lady standing at the left. Would love to know what she was thinking! :-) Thanks for sharing and Happy Easter to you.

Hello Joy, my apologies for another late visit (I actually read your post earlier but unable to leave a comment). Thanks for the Easter postcard with the blossoms on top of the children. I also enjoy the two photos you posted. I hope your week is ending well and looking forward for your next post!
