Easter 2013.

Easter is my very favorite holiday. I do not believe in any God but I totally believe in celebrating spring and new beginnings. The thing about this Easter though... it didn´t feel like Easter at all. For one thing, we brought home little Ludwig, who is so very cute and mischievous and easily scared and all in all just needs a lot of attention. I´ll write more about him soon.

Also, it´s not helping that there´s in fact no spring to celebrate. When the masters of ceremony lit the annual Easter fire, it wouldn´t burn at first. Because that huge, carefully built pile of wood was frozen to the core. Yep. Anyway it did burn in the end and it was a lovely evening. (Here´s last years Easter fire with a bit more of information and pictures. It´s a wonderful tradition.)

In my defense, I did manage to dye eggs (I always use natural dye) and bake some Easter bread! But we kind of ran out of everything else so Easter 2013 was a great success even from the culinary point of view (we had pizza on Sunday, ahem). Oh well. There´s always next year, right?

Ludwig is adorable. there will be fun times ahead and hopefully not too much chewing of things not meant to be chewed. It will good to have his company as you work at home. He's very lucky to have your big house and grounds to mooch in.

I also mostly like the photos of rooms, projects or your garden... But now you have set a new benchmark. I want a puppy-pic EVERY DAY. and when he is no puppy anymore, you´ll have to get another one ;-)

What a sweet new addition to your family! Congratulations! Your eggs turned out so beautifully, what did you use to die them? It proves that the natural way is always the best way!

Bettina, the red ones are (brown) onion skin, the yellow is curcuma, and the aubergine ones are dyed with elderberry juice. :)
