Easter and a Hare amidst the Heirlooms
There would be a reason to color eggs and buy pretty sweets this Easter! We would have yung’uns sprinkled among the oldsters!
We would range from one year old to 90!
Ironing napkins and polishing silver to get ready makes me happy. It somehow brings several generations back to the table.
No forced greens or pussy willows this year. We were still so frozen so that I couldn’t even get my Christmas evergreens out of my window boxes!!
Usually a pale palette for me, this Easter would be bright!
Roasted asparagus and carrots, greens with grapefruit and lemony dressing. At least we would put sunshine on our tastebuds!
My daughter arrived with flowers in her hair and children filled the house. Now it felt like EASTER!
Old and new everywhere. The Easter bunny came! There was a happy hunt among true believers.
Little ones peering out the windows trying to catch sight of a retreating Easter Bunny tail found several white tail deer out there instead to delight them.
New tea cups on the table for tea brewed in this tea pot. A replica of one brought over by my 11th great grandfather’s in 1620, now quite old on its own.
As it says in this pretty calligraphy that it was “exactly copied and reproduced by Richard Briggs of Boston in 1871”!
Easter through the decades!
