Pastel Easter

Don’t you love the soft colors of spring.  It’s like lazily waking up  from a long winter’s nap…not quite ready for bright and bold.

Nature’s had practice creating beautiful…

Nothing as sweet as a newly laid egg as a symbol of  spring & new life

I tucked a newly laid egg into a nest I made from moss and birch branches and nestled it on a mossy rock between a brunnera with sweet blue flowers and a bright green heuchera.

What a beautiful symbol of new life and spring

I re-created some of the colors in one of my Easter tablesettings.

The soft pastel yellow of a baby duck’s downy feathers….and the bright green grass
