easter goodies

25 March 2008

Easter is the nicest time of year to visit my parents, when the leaves are turning and the days are crisp and clear.  It’s a chance to visit Mollydale Knits and indulge in some handspun local wool.

And then pop next door to Barking Dog Gallery to see another talented woman and her beautiful ceramics.

Pears and Granny Smiths from my father’s trees, red apples from the wild tree that grows by the road into town.

And I can’t leave without my mother pressing me to accept homegrown tomatoes, silverbeet, and a slab of cranberry cake.  Yum! With all that abundance, there’s no need for chocolate.

Well, maybe just a little.
