    Cool Easter baubles and trinkets, chez-Marco

    Del decided to get creative, by putting to good use an old terracotta pot/plate and a nice sinewy branch from our garden, and decorate it with some Easter baubles and trinkets we purchased from John Lewis, which she then filled with mini-daffodils and some Gisella Graham Swiss chocolate eggs:





    Makes the window in the kitchen look rather attractive and 'Eastery', I think?

    HAPPY EASTER, EVERYONE!

    Marco.

    I like the Easter Bunnies.

    When I was a small boy, my mother would hide miniature chocolate eggs around the house and in the garden for me (and my friends) to find.

    Also, if I had a boiled egg for breakfast, Dad would have painted a face on the shell, like Humpty Dumpty. All sounds a bit "twee" and quaint now, but I loved it at the time.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    Not at all, Barry, and cheers for your comments. I don't think it's twee, as I have very similar warm memories as a child, including the painting of boiled eggs and rolling them down the hill of the local park with my parents

    It's nice a happy thing to do, and such traditions should be maintained and practiced by more families today! Fond childhood memories are to be nurtured and treasured...

    Cheers, Jo. It was spying that sinewy looking branch in the garden, which gave her the inspiration

    So what capital offence have the bunnies committed?

    The bastids ate all the spring lamb [these were special meat-eating bunnies]!
