Easter Eggs


"Nothing is so beautiful as spring - when weeds, in wheels, shoot long and lovely and lush;
Thrush's eggs look little low heavens,
and thrush through the echoing timber does so rinse and wring the ear,
it strikes like lightning to hear him sing."
~Gerard Manley Hopkins


These eggs are of handpainted ceramic from Ecuador, South America. A close friend gave them to me during the time we lived there. I love their bright colours and smooth round shape.
I was looking at an egg the other day (don't ask me why...'cause I don't know) and thought about how eggs are so perfectly shaped. And so uniform. When I put the eggs into the egg tray in the refrigerator, they all feel pretty much the same.
Our world is ordered so wonderfully - God's creativity amazes me!

  6. Hi Lorrie,
    I LOVE your beautiful eggs! The blues are so vibrant. I am a sucker for anything blue. What a wonderful Easter treat to bring out each year!

    I love your new background and header. Very pretty blues.
    Blessings,

  7. I knew that poem would be by G. M. Hopkins as soon as I started reading it. Are we stuck in a rut?
