Easter Weekend

Sunshine, warm breezes, spring flowers, and a sweet two year old grandson hunting for eggs. What could be better? It was the kind of weekend that I have been dreaming about all this long, cold winter. We worked (I should say "played") in the garden, raking up the debris, cleaning out the greenhouse, and planning new garden beds. (More about this later.)

We dyed our chicken's eggs with plant stuff and spices. I made a little Easter basket for Tad inspired by one here: http://prettybyhand.com/ and peat pot favors seen here: http://rootedinthyme.blogspot.com/.  I made sugar cookies, a baked ham, and biscuits. Andrew and Alison brought a broccoli salad and twice-baked potatoes. Yummy! We spent the evening outside, hunting Easter eggs, wandering the gardens, and playing kickball with Tad. Like I said, perfect!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter!
