365/89 Sentimental, with hyacinths

This chick with egg is my one and only Easter decoration.  My mother in law painted two of these when my husband was little:  a blue egg for him, a pink one for his sister.  (Remember the 70's?  Ceramics painting was popular then; the Paint Your Own studios are not new, just more upscale.)  I love it because she made it and gave it to us.  Some years I put candy in it, but this year it got hyacinths from my garden.  A few always flop over, so I cut them and bring them inside.  Now, my whole house smells like hyacinths  - lovely!
