I've had a few busy weeks again, but I managed to find time to create a bit of Easter ambiance.
First I planted some grass seed. It sprouted overnight. I love the furry white hair that first appear. And the stalks. Fragile, but determined, little spears of green.
After a few days it looked like this.
The beautiful root system is the reason why I planted the seeds in a glass candle holder.
Then the chicks and chocolate eggs moved in.
I dyed these eggs some years ago, using tea, coffee, onion peels and crocus petals. Yesterday I got a tip about more natural dyes for your Easter eggs. Check it out here.
An Easter cupcake gave me renewed energy to finish what I'd started.
and was so inspired that I made a whole bunch for myself. Spring is late in Finland this year, so in lieu of real crocuses, I can enjoy these instead.
Thanks for visiting. Happy Easter and Happy Spring to us all! - Annika
