We hiked the Florida Trails over the weekend and laughed out loud when we saw this tree in the forest!

We even thought we might do something like this on one of the other trails we like to hike.

Diane, APRIL ....so hard to believe it's April. I love the egg tree, that would give you a smile walking upon it in the woods. I am totally loving that waterlogue app... I probably would try it on every photo. Can you print them off , once you have the effect?? Hope you are having a fun day. xoxo,Susie

Good morning! Love the Eager Egg tree - and the Waterlogue photo is gorgeous. We had only 14 degrees here this morning, so no Spring yet.

How fun to come across that tree! It is finally warming up here!

Vee said...

I haven't, but when I was out this morning taking pictures of snow...ahem...I thought no wonder I don't know that there is bird song all around...I'm not out enough. So I hope to begin walking in the mornings early...just once around the block. It'll take me a while to get back in the groove.

What fun to see that tree on your walk! (I hope that they remove the decor after Easter. ☺)

Wow. Where have I been? I have missed several of your posts. Love the Easter egg tree out in the forest. Makes one a believer, at least in the human spirit.

Okay, Dianne, this is torture for us still in the snowbanks of the north. lol But I'd love to be there walking the trails with you. Fun Easter egg tree idea, isn't it!

Good morning Diane! A voice from the past, it's Jackie from Once Upon a Fairyland. I have not been blogging in over a year and I'm back at it. Came to visit you and I also saw the blog with the cosmetic bags, they are adorable. I am blogging still from Jacquelines-land.blogspot.com and my business blog which is Dingbatalleyartblog.blogspot.com

Hi Miss Lavender Dreams,

Oh, I think you are pulling my mohair, that isn't a REAL Easter egg tree.

Congratulations on winning Bunny over at TheRustyThimble. Yippee.

Christine said...

Isn't that a fun sight in the middle of the trail!
Have a great day!

Jill said...

What a fun thing to come upon!! It would looks sad here though, surrounded by snow! So sad!!

Chel @ Sweetbriar Dreams said...

I love that tree! I'm going to have to do something similar outside my house for the little ones down the road!

Pamela Gordon said...

That would be fun to see but I hope they clean them up after. It would be cute at home but we have snow here so it's impossible. Have you seen the man with the Easter egg tree that has thousands of coloured eggs on it? It's really pretty. I think he's in Europe.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

What fun! Yes, you should do something like that...so cute!
hugs,
Linda

simply bev said...

I'd have laughed too! What a surprise to come upon that egg tree during a hike!

Musings from Kim K. said...

That's definitely a fun surprise. You should do something like that. We actually hit 60 degrees yesterday. The ice rink is officially over. It's back down to 32 today, but we got a taste of spring. It was glorious!

cucki said...

So very cute x

Lynn@Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

I love little random acts of fun like this:@)

Dee Lapin said...

I'm so glad spring is finally here. The Easter tree is so cute and unexpected.

willa croft said...

Diane, you've inspired me to hit our trails here in N.VA, perhaps we will come upon an Easter Egg tree.

~willa~

NanaDiana said...

Oh- How funny. Looks like the Easter Egg bunny made a visit to that tree- xo Diana

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

That's just too cute. You should do it!! It's been raining here for the last couple of days, so no walking except up and down the stairs.

Kim@Snug Harbor said...

Oh, that's charming!

I love the Easter Egg trees. My Motherinlove has a few trees in her front yard filled with Easter eggs.
Yes we do like to get our Spring on EARLY in Florida. We've had out some springy stuff since Feb. LOL! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

Poppy said...

What a joyful surprise of colour and a sweet spring welcome! Love your waterlogue app creation, Diane, it truly resembles a real water colour painting!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Geraldine said...

Oh my goodness! I love this!!! What a pleasant surprise.
I've been a little busy planning our daughter's birthday, but I need to get out there and get back to my morning walks again. They make such a difference for me.
