Happy Easter

Thanks to egg sleeves I picked up in the wonderful gift shop at HIllwood, I have fancy hardboiled eggs for lunches this week. The Palekh style ones are lovely but I particularly like the creepy big-eyed waifs holding icons.

It was another lovely Hillwood tour on Saturday even if the weather wasn’t great for touring the gardens. There were a few more people in our tour group than usual thanks to a docent shortage. One docent had become suddenly ill. Another docent, the native Russian speaker, had to be pulled to do a private tour for the Russian Cultural Minister. He showed up without letting anyone know he was coming over. HIllwood has one of the largest Russian art collections outside Russia so I expect this must happen often to them.
