Easter festivities April 24, 2011

judas tree in full flower

we were able to pick our Easter wisteria bouquets

preparation of the lamb, lots of rubbing of salt, pepper, rosemary and garlic

it's not Easter without the eggs

and we can't forget the chocolate eggs

our harvest of field asparagus - tonight's dinner risotto

found some lovely wildflowers and honeysuckle on my morning walk

Lovely Easter weekend in Umbrian countryside "in famiglia". Easter flowers, delicious and very plentiful food, dyed Easter eggs, chocolate eggs, roosters, lambs, and chicks. Weather could have been better but Easter Sunday gave us some sun to go hunting asparagus, after me and the older set attended Mass in the village church.  Lots of relaxation, fun, great company and fabulous, bountiful food. Thanks Elizabeth and family!
