A donkey in waiting

.

A donkey among the many red flowers on the Mount of Olives.
Maybe he is resting up for the big entry into Jerusalem tomorrow, Palm Sunday.
.
Sorry, friends, that I have no new photos for the Christian holidays since I no longer live near Jerusalem.
You can, however, enjoy Sr. Dr. Vassa's brief video about Palm Sunday.
She has nice insights from her childhood home in Nyack, New York, about the holiday customs.
.
Happy holiday to you Western Christians who celebrate the day tomorrow.

A good donkey shot always brings me back to Cervantes and Sancho Panza.

The donkey looks well cared for.

I love the sprinkling of red flowers, very peaceful scene.

I forgot all about Palm Sunday. I had intended to take photos but it's so gloomy and dark and windy and rainy that I ended up at an exhibition... Love your bucolic scene (and donkeys!)

Sweet animal. Methinks he's having a pleasant time.

A well-deserved relaxation, I suppose...
Nice find, Dina !

I wonder if he understands what he is about to symbolize. Interesting and thoughtful photo.
