HAPPY EASTER !


Easter Sunday: will there be an egg hunt around your place? We've always had one in our garden. Not this year since the family is dispersed, but here are the eggs the kids and I painted last year. Click to enlarge and you'll see lots of lovely details. The frangipani flowers are from our garden. Have a lovely Easter everyone - with lots of chocolate ?

Dimanche de Pâques. Y aura-t-il une chasse à l'oeuf du côté de chez vous ? Nous en avons toujours fait une dans notre jardin. Pas cette année puisque la famille est dispersée, alors je vous présente les oeufs que les enfants et moi avons peint l'année dernière. Cliquez sur la photo pour l'agrandir, vous verrez plein de charmants détails. Les fleurs de frangipanier viennent de notre jardin. Joyeuses Pâques à tous - avec plein de chocolat ?

Quelle patience! Vous aviez vidé les oeufs avant ou sont-ils durs? Quand j'étais petite fille, on les faisait cuire avec des fleurs d'ajonc si on les voulait jaune d'or, avec des épluchures d'oignon si on voulait les faire rougir. Pourras-tu me rappeler le nom de cette herbe qui remplace la pelouse, comme à Nouméa? Je n'arrive pas à m'en souvenir...

Oh Nathalie, these eggs are beautifully painted. Remembering the story you told me of your life, I can only imagine how wonderful it must've been for your children. Surrounded by colour and warmth.

Have a good Easter.

You and your children are apparently very artistic and skilled. These are gorgeous eggs! And a lovely presentation! Happy Easter, Annie. Your Easter nest is emptier this year, but you have lots of great memories.

How beautiful. All so different and all so beautiful.

I have a friend in Menton who owns one of Menton's famous gardens. (there are several) and he invites all his friends' children for his traditional Easter Egg Hunt - always the best fun.

Your bouquet is just lovely.

Happy Easter, Nathalie - Jilly x

La chasse aux oeufs se faisait toujours dans le jardin de mes parents puis dans le "jardin de marguerite" de Cergy
Même avec mes grands dadais !

Cette année tout le monde est dispersé (d'hab on se retrouve à paques malgré tout à Cergy)
Mais ce sont mafille et son ami qui ont joué les cloches dans leur appart de Lyon

C'était très doux
Un passage de relais...

Fantastic pieces of art, your eggs. Keep them!
