Easter, indoors and out

Outside there are lambs; in the field behind the copse, just beyond the far edges of the garden, which are punctuated by the papery pom-poms of Kerria japonica pleniflora.  The stems of this cottage garden staple are supple enough to twist into a wreath to bring indoors . . .

. . .  along with posies picked from the garden, and placed in egg shell vessels. Cowslips, forget-me-knots, and periwinkle.

Yolk-stained stems of narcissi fill the room with their honeyed scent.  Sweetness pervades: all sugared violets and speckled eggs.
