Eggs and Flowers

Jake painted the violets on this egg when he was six. That was the last Easter my mum was able to share with us.
This egg always reminds me of her. She taught me to paint eggs, cook cakes and to create fiendishly tricky easter egg hunts, and she loved violets.

Usually this is the time of year when violets start to flower, but it's been an extraordinarily dry April and I could only find one violet in the garden.
