Happy Easter! I hope you had a good one. We had a litte feast with friends from Berlin yesterday, thankfully the weather cooperated nicely and we were able to sit outside for the first time this year! I´m really proud of my eggs this year, I always use natural dyes (mostly because I love the subtle colors so much) - red cabbage for the blueish ones, turmeric for yellow and brown onion skins for the red eggs.
I also made Austrian Easter "Pinzen" for the first time - rich, aniseed-scented yeasted buns. I used to eat tons of those when we were still living in Vienna. I used this recipe and they turned out beautifully.
A little Easter set-up in the dining room. I had completely forgotten that I had those wooden bunnies!
Today in the evening. If you look closely you can see a swarm of cranes right by the woods. So many cranes around here this spring! I love them and the noises they make. Unfortunately Ludwig "loves" them too, but more in terms of "those would make a nice breakfast", which makes for interesting walks. Also, the garden is slowly waking up... I´ve been busy with spring cleaning, so looking forward to this garden season!
Last but not least, my home is being featured in the current issue of German Home & Style magazine. On 14 pages no less! The pictures are from a series that Berlin photographer Anne-Catherine Scoffoni took of our house and garden last year. It´s fun to see which pictures got picked! Also note to myself, go to the hairdresser before your pictures are being taken!! Cringe. Anyway, have a happy week! Almost April, time flies.
PS: Thank you for all your comments on the last post! I am thinking of doing a blog series called "moving to the country" which will answer all the questions you might have concerning, well, moving to the country. Would this be of interest to you? And if so, which questions do you have?
