Easter

Easter 2013 web

We were on the verge of a white Easter this year. There were a few flakes of snow in London, but we trained our thoughts on resurrection, rebirth, flowers, eggs, lambs, sweet things and feasts. In my family, Easter is a very busy time, involving Polish traditions adapted to my Ma’s creative ways. We still paint (organic) boiled eggs. Some years there are new ideas. On this occasion, the onion dyed eggs were first decorated with masking gum, leaving tiny dots and vines. The duck eggs were painted with acrylic paints, and the chocolate mazurek was dedicated to our South African visitors; a marzipan elephant with almond tusks and ginger ears.
