Happy Easter!

I'm off for a long weekend in the country chez maman, where the air is pure, the flowers bloom and there isn't an internet connection in sight.

I hope you all have a lovely Easter celebration!


  1. Did you paint the eggs in the bowl? I like the unusual colours.
    I am trying to decide whether the village church has an octagonal tower whatever a great design.

    Wishing you and all your family a Happy Easter.Ida

  2. You are off for Easter by now, but anyways, I wish you a peaceful weekend. The landscape picture is charming!

  3. Ida: These eggs are a national speciality, cooked in red onion peelings. Raw eggs are adorned with various flower petals, leaves, grasses then they are bundled tightly in old stockings and cooked in a pot filled with red onion peelings. I have never done any research on this but I presume this method of colouring is present in most of the former Eastern communist countries where egg dye wasn't available and people resorted to various methods of egg decoration.
    Mette: Thank you, I hope you and your family had a lovely celebration as well. The landscape picture is a photo of my mum's village. Very peaceful and stress free!
