Easter Memory

Like all the beautiful spring flowers appearing, my posts are suddenly popping up all over the place!

I was walking back to the library from doing the banking, through the park, and all the wonderful spring day we are enjoying made me think back to when I was a little girl at primary school. We were not poor, but certainly not well off either, and I remember getting to the age where the girls at school were exchanging easter eggs.

Of course I wanted to do this too, but there were not many pennies to spend, so what my lovely, wonderful Mum did was to take little Cadbury Creme Eggs, and tie each one up in one or two squares of pastel net, gathered round and tied (in the style of a high ponytale, if that makes sense!) on top with a bit of glorious ribbon, and a tiny haberdashery flower poked through the bow.

Simple but beautiful.

That's a lovely idea, not so far removed from what our local farm shop are doing to raise some money for charity - little hen cosies for creme eggs, which sit nicely on top! I think it's a great idea, and most of an easter egg is the anticipation ;-)

Sometimes the best things are just the simplest. That sounds so lovely, I'm going to try it myself.
