Tulips and daffodils,
green, green grass, sunshine (we got lucky), colored eggs; all are part and parcel of Easter at our house.
Without kids at home, we skip the Easter basket and candy, although I do have a brightly colored Easter basket on the table filled with colored egg shells from a few years ago. The ends were pierced and the egg blown out of them, then they were rinsed out and decorated. I keep them in an egg carton with the season decorations. They may last forever!
Today was the first morning that it was warm enough to eat breakfast outside (and we ate a few hours later than usual, too, which helps). We had a festive breakfast that included Sweetie's famous fruit bowls
plus the Bread Egg Nests with colored eggs that I tried this year.
Read all about the nests at the Bread Baker's Dog. They are yummy and you get a sweet roll and a soft boiled egg in one pretty packet.
Hope that your Easter, Passover, or other rite of Spring is delightful!
