Easter egg tree




We finally finished this year's Easter tree made from a few twigs from our twisted hazel in the garden. We dyed the eggs using red cabbage and red onion skins but unlike success in previous years, this year they just didn't take despite doing everything the same. I still like how they've turned out and it's a fun family tradition that we look forward to and that we've done for years now.


We had a lovely day starting with an Easter egg hunt around the garden, quickly followed by eating as much chocolate as possible before breakfast. Grandma and Grandad visited for a delicious roast Sunday lunch. I wrapped a shoulder of lamb in wild garlic leaves, it was really good. Then with full bellies we played a family game of Scrabble and managed to finish before the babe stole any of the tiles.

  1. Love your twisted hazel - it's so structural. Makes a fab Easter tree! Hope you're enjoying the last of the Easter weekend. x
