brrrrr : Easter ! (and other things)

I am really sure we never had an Easter Monday
as cold as this one :
with wind and rain and SNOW and HAIL

For our little family Easter means : looking for eggs in the garden.
(Oh yes, we had rain a few time s and then
the Easter Bunny hid the eggs somewhere inside !

Because this time we had no wrapped eggs (vegan)
I wrapped them myself :
some in alu foil (for outside)
and some in coloured tissue paper (for inside)

In our spring garden there are plenty of places where eggs can be hidden !

The first few eggs are often easily found
because a small part is showing
. . .
but after that, it gets a bit harder

And no matter how small or how big you are :
looking for Easter eggs is FUN !

(as helper of the Easter Bunny, I  always count the eggs,
because after a bit I have forgotten where I put them !)

We didn't find them all (!)
but it was so freezing that we went inside to look for the "paper" ones

Sometimes it's hard to see things
even if they're right under your nose !
(in the white felted shell )

After an hour the weather turned


Last week I mentioned "mending"
and that there were two real things
I still needed to do

The big guy was totally satisfied with my work
and glad that he could wear his trousers again !

My wonderful "knitting-daughter"
made a present for someone :

For the Stitch Club this week
I made this "wrap"

I hope the sun and warmth return next week !!!

(p.s. : still some eggs missing outside !)

  1. Your wonderful post takes me back a few years when our kiddos hid eggs outside but could never find them all. I agree that hunting eggs is fun no matter the age.

    1. Thanks Mary ! It was still so cold (snow showers) that we didn't try to find the last few haha !

  2. Your garden is so beautiful even with the wild weather and love your daffodil "wrap"!

  3. surely those lost eggs will pop up out of nowhere and leave you wondering how they were ever missed in the first place
