Easter Finery

There were no bonnets in sight in our Quakerly celebration of Easter. (Although, if you're looking for that kind of vibe, we can recommend friend Melissa Harris-Perry's lovely going-to-church hat.)

But we did indulge in a dress-up spirit of sorts, as we returned to the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen to transform a dingy side lot into an Easter Wonderland for the 90+ children who squealed their way to finding hundreds of eggs provided and hidden by the children of Princeton Monthly Meeting.

And Mr. D's new bike has a certain fancy flair about it, don't you think?

As does Witherspoon Street, with its o'erhanging blossoms...

Tomorrow morning we'll start the day
with an "egg war" (good thing Nana's not here,
or none of the rest of us would stand a chance),
so feast your eyes... this is your last chance
to see all twelve of these beauties intact:
Happy Easter!

(A warm thank you to Sassafras Mama
for an outstanding Easter supper;
she & her boy certainly make for good company,
and she provides a dependably scrumptious meal as well!)

The eggs are so beautiful ----- some day, I want a tutorial on making them.
