Photo Challenge: Growth

This photo of a simnel cake enjoyed at Easter is for me the representation of new life and growth.

Easter is the religious festival to look forward to at the start of the year.

The eggs on the cake represent new life and the marzipan balls which symbolise Christ’s “disciples” bring to mind the new path of their life and the new religion Christianity which they brought to the world.

It is certainly relevant to my blog too in its relation to Oscar Wilde’s stories, notably The Selfish Giant which has Christianity central to its tale and in which a garden plays a large part.

Everyone at the beginning of the year should read this story!
