Easter came and went and was a low key affair. For the first time, I didn't make everything. In the past, I have even made my own butter, shaped in an old chick chocolate mold, with homemade rolls and everything else. Though I do draw the line at paper plates, this was an easier day as evidenced by this cake.
A Chantilly Cream Cake from Whole Foods. I couldn't have made a better one - it was delicious. I simply added more berries and voila.
I made the grands hide the eggs outside as I've found too many old eggs under cushions in the past. I did not think (until too late) that they'd be stomping on all the perennials and new growth, but what else can be expected of kids?
I planted tulips across the bed at the edge of the patio. I've watched them popping up for weeks. Came back to the farm yesterday and thought I wasn't going to get to see them bloom.
Alas, a couple of parrot tulips did open before I left. I was so happy to at least get to see these.
Perhaps next year.
