30 days of Ostara; Day 4

Sugar easter eggs, panorama eggs, egg kaleidoskopes
I really like these :-)

Bakerella's cake pops

I haven't managed to find out why these herbs are listed as Ostara correspondences:
Broom, Celandine, Cinquefoil, Elder, Ginger, Honeysuckle, Iris, Jasmine, Mugwort, Sage, St John's Wort, Vervain, Violets

To me herbs corresponding to Ostara are:
Daffodils, jonquils, narcissi
Easter Lily
broom, willow, sallow, osier and hazel
Alliums; onion, garlic, leek, shallot, chives etc. (It's an Aries plant, even though I personally hate the taste of the whole group.)

a long list of Easter links

How to grow sprouts. Sprouts are really good to eat and cheap and easy vegetable at this time of the year.

Growing daffodils indoors - forcing bulbs
It's a bit too late for this year, but try next year :-)

my little mochi has some nice felt tutorials; chibi rabbit and a reindeer pocket that can easily be turned into sheep; just sew in a circle of fur on the lid of the purse/forehead of the sheep

How to make sarubobo (pocket monkey) - add rabbit ears, and you have a pocket bunny.

Fun egg collecting game - works a bit like mahjong (In German)

The photos aren't correct. I need to take today's picture and get photo paper and new ink for the printer. 
It's just to illustrate what I'm doing.
