It's that time of the year when....

this is ending....

and this is starting.

The people of Taggia get all medievally ....

and the shops start selling chocolate olives for Easter*.

It's knitting needle harvest time....

And, last but definitely least, it's time to get out that odious brown bag that contains everything we need to hold the annual Maberga Road consortium meeting.

I hate that bag.  I love spring.

*If you think about it, does it make any more sense that a giant bunny brings chocolate eggs instead of chocolate olives to celebrate the resurrection of the son of God?


  1. “Is the spring coming?" he said. "What is it like?"...
    "It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine...”
    From the Secret Garden

    Thanks for sharing springtime in Maberga!

  2. That's what I will tell the children now - they are spending Easter with their grandparents in Liguria! - "the bunny brings olives for you"...
    What a wonderful rainbow - and what a nice costume play. Why did they dress up?
    I really want to see your self made knitting needles!
