Easter Tree

Easter is this weekend.

We've dyed Easter eggs.

Which means it's the time of year for the Easter tree.

I'm not exactly sure when we started this tradition. But it had to do with wanting to paint and decorate eggs, but then not wanting to hide the fragile, beautiful works of art.

I'm pretty sure the tradition did not stem from still having our Christmas tree up at Easter and decorating it with eggs as an excuse to not take it down. But I can't be sure.

Last year, our Easter tree was beautiful.

This year, it's a little...well, scraggly.

And I have no idea if the branches we chose will actually have flowers like last year. With my luck, there will either be no flowers, or ones that smell like the door mat.

It does make me smile every time I walk in the kitchen, so it is my photo for the Happiness Project.
