37When he came near the place where the road goes down the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of disciples began joyfully to praise God in loud voices for all the miracles they had seen:
38"Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!"
"Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!"
39Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, "Teacher, rebuke your disciples!"
40"I tell you," he replied, "if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out."
The flowers and trees seem more vibrant to me this year. Maybe it is because of the long winter we had. But I can't help but think of the verses above when I see them. Because the rocks may not be crying out, but the trees and flowers are praising Him every day with all their beauty.
