Today is Good Friday, a day for reflection and for myself, mixed emotions.  Without Good Friday we would not celebrate Easter, when Jesus Christ arose from the grave. But, sadly he was tortured, vilified, and crucified on Good Friday.

Good Friday was also the traditional day for Ninny and Poppa to plant their gardens, it was thought to be an extremely lucky day for planting.  Unfortunately my back and knees prevent me from gardening.  However I do have a beautiful purple Gloxinia that I have pampered since last year that is almost ready to bloom.
