My Easter Wish for You via Magic Beans

One of my favorite respites, Al's Garden Center, holds an Al's Kids Club event every month. For March, and in preparation for Easter, they had the kids plant 'Magic Beans'.

Here is one of the beans ... with a message of "Hope" on one side, and a picture of a butterfly on the other:












Just in time for Easter, here are the results ... no magic fairy dust required:














"Peace" ...



















"Family" ...

















A view of the other side ... flowers and a peace sign ...











Hope, peace, and family ... that is my Easter wish for you!

That's some of that David Blaine magic, isn't it? I never get that, either.

(Happy Easter, Kelly!)

Those beans are REALLY pleasant on the eye - now who would have thought THAT!

So who's the avid photographer in the family? Or do you all chip in.

THANKS for the EYE FEAST!!

Thank you for your wonderful comments ... for those who asked, I'm attempting to track down the creator of these wonderfully-inscribed beans, and will let you know when I know! I'm excited to find out myself! :-)

And, Ann Marie ... the avid photographer is definitely me ... amateur, but avid! :-)

Those are so cute. It makes me feel bad now that I killed a would-be plant that would've had my son's name on it :-(

Great Easter post!
