    Love this egg hunt! Such gorgeous photos and the eggs in such fun places…my fav, the chair! Happy Easter!

    Mary, I laughed out loud when I saw you had put an egg in the opening of the chair back! Too funny!
    All your *hiding* places are beautiful & tell your MIL I’ve always wanted a copy of the “Bird Girl” statue, like her’s but I’d REALLY like to have her Lenten roses! Wow!
    I also followed your link & found it interesting to read about the history of the statue & that Jack Leigh, the photographer for the book cover, died of colon cancer & is buried in Bonaventure Cemetery, where he took his most famous photograph.

    Thanks for sharing your photos & that link, as well.
    Hugs,

    Wow, Mary this is the most beautiful easter egg hunt I’ve ever been to. Every single picture is just gorgeous. I can hardly pick a favorite place for the egg, but I love that you put one in the chair hole too. The eggs are beautiful. Have a most wonderful day.

    I love this beautifully creative post, Mary.

    I want the Bird Girl. Have wanted one ever since I read “the book”, many years ago.

    Just love the speckled eggs! Gorgeous array of hiding places, and I have always loved that statue!

    HI Mary,
    I enjoyed your Easter Egg hunt so much. When I got my eggs home there was a $100. bill in one of the eggs. Thanks a bunch for that! My favorite pic is the one with the Bumble Bee in flight before he lights on the Azaelia blossom. So beautiful! Carolyn

    you sure know how to have a good time, and i read above it looks like a lottery hunt too!

    All the pictures are gorgeous, as always, but the last one you posted ( the collage with the bunny in the middle surrounded by Easter eggs) made me chuckle out loud. I felt like he was saying, “Yup…I was here” !

    How fun! I am enthralled with the idea your MIL owns one of the Bird Girl statues!!! I’ve always loved that piece and wished I had one. The history behind it is fascinating… I loved the book and enjoyed the ‘campiness’ of the movie…

    Mary your photos are always gorgeous. I thought the eggs in the birdhouse and chair were so cute and clever. Can I ask what camera you use to take such stunning pictures. Some of them just take my breath away. The close up of the bee was just incredible. Well they all were but to get that photo like we are literally standing in your beautiful garden, right there at the bush just watching this bee, well it I felt like I was literally there. That really says something about the photographer. Wow…just Wow! Also I would have loved to come to your hunt and found a hundred dollar bill in an egg. (smile) Now THAT is an easter egg hunt beyond hunts. Loved it!

      Hi Everyone~ Thanks for your generous comments! My friend Carolyn is a funny gal~ no $100 bill in an egg, although I’d like to find one myself :)

    How’d I miss this??? What a neat, and original idea for a post-I love it! Pigs like egg hunts too… just sayin’:@) Great pics of the bee too!

    What fun it is at your place! Love the creative hiding spots. Wonder what the birds thought? This makes me want to have an egg hunt of my own. Only problem it is raining ~ first green pollen everywhere and now actual rain. Of course that’s a good thing.
    Have a terrific day! ~ Sarah

    Very creative, Mary! I thoroughly enjoyed the egg hunt! Ours will sport the plastic eggs, I have to fill 150 of them, and gkids and their cousins in wild animation will be hunting for them! A few will have a dollar but most quarters! The terrible economy has hit the Easter Bunny too! Good thing his egg mobile runs on grass, not gas!

    Can I join in the Easter Egg hunt! Such a pretty post!

    Mary, this is such a fun egg hunt! I love the egg in the bird house! And the bird girl wants to come and live here! She is wonderful and I read every bit of that link. I really enjoyed that book, although I did not see the movie.
    All your photos are wonderful. Linda

    p.s. I have been wondering about your camera. Thanks for the link. I am just beginning to use my Nikon 5100D and I would like to get a good macro lens. Editing, well that’s beyond me so far, but I’m going to learn to use Picasa this summer! Linda

  23. March 31, 2012 at 11:25 pm

    Beautiful, Mary! I love your Lenton roses, hydrangeas, and azaleas. What a great photo you captured of the bumblebee. :)

    This is such a sweet post — thank you for sharing! Have a happy weekend.

    Love the eggs in the birdbath! Fun idea, Laura

    Those eggs sure found some wonderful places to hide. If I was them i would never want to be found. Beautiful blooms and mosaics!
