Frost Is on the Easter Egg Bush

For many years now, a highlight of Easter at our house is decorating a bush outside with brightly colored plastic eggs.

Down from the attic comes the plastic bin, filled with eggs of all sizes and colors.

The decorated Easter egg bush draws lots of attention.

It's such a pretty thing to see! 

Here's the first egg hung:

Some cars slow down in front of our house so people can get a better look.

Children walk by and slow their pace when they see the bush. Some stop all together and stare.

Mostly, it draws smiles.

This year it was more of a challenge than ever to decorate it  because I had to traipse through snow to get to it.

A couple of times, the plastic bin of eggs collected throughout the years almost slid down the little hill near the bush.

But even worse, I almost slid down myself a couple of times and that wouldn't have been a pretty sight!

 I wasn't even singing "Here Comes Peter Cottontail, Hopping Down the Bunny Trail."



It felt like decorating for Santa instead of the Easter bunny but now it's done and the Easter egg bush looks pretty "schnazzy," especially contrasted against all the white snow!

Lots like fun for you. I have never done it. I guess winter always hangs around and dampens the outside for Easter too often.

I love this!

I used to have a little Easter tree with tiny ornaments. But it broke years ago.

Hello from Spain: In my country there is no tradition of decorating with easter eggs. I see that you have snow in your city. In my country we are in spring with sun and heat. Keep in touch

Oh Susan it is lovely! We do one too! Been doing one since my girls were born. :) I have a burning bush I use out front and the neighbors just love it. Glad to see you put one up too! :) Kit

I've never decorated a bush with Easter eggs. Yours is lovely, though, and it seems like it would be a beautiful idea! Spring is coming, you know.:-)

Your Easter Egg bush looks great! So colorful and "Springy" despite the late arrive of Spring. Sunshine is predicted for tomorrow so I'm sure you Easter Egg bush will be dazzling in the glow of the springtime sun.

I never have decorated an outside bush with Easter Eggs, but I used to pick a branch and bring it inside. I would hang filled Easter eggs on it for the kids. They loved plucking the eggs off and finding small surprises in the eggs. Nice memory.

Oh no there is still snow on the ground..a little different from the bush you decorated in Arizona right Susan? Still lovely though. Spring is just around the corner!

Lady Linda said...

Oh goodness Susan! I have lilacs blooming already and there you are, in the snow! WOW. Hope spring arrives soon.
I bet you can't wait.
