No Roses without Thorns

This Easter weekend in Zürich there has been an initiative between the reformed churches (sponsored by a florist!) to decorate 7 of the many fountains with roses.
As quoted in this article: "The church also draws a parallel between link between “Corona” and the crown of thorns which Jesus bore. It points out that without thorns, there are no roses, just as without Good Friday there is no Easter!"

I walked into the old town by myself on Easter Saturday. It was beautiful weather and the roses and fountains were glorious. My heart lifted at the beauty and I feel so priviledged to live in such an amazing place.





Here were the locations:
*Münsterhof close to the Fraumünster church
*Top of Rennweg near the En Soie Shop
*Augustinergasse next to the Augustinerkirche
*Helmhaus
*Zwingliplatz / Helferei
*Stüssihofstatt
*Predigerplatz
