Germans like to decorate these types of branches for Easter. I am not sure which flowers will spring to life from these ones...but I will take a photo once they do bloom.
The shops and florists are overflowing with bundles of branches to sell.
Phil says this is just another excuse for me to buy more decorations. (like my Christmas decoration obsession). So, I don't want to disappoint him, I have bought a few for the beginning of my collection
You can also buy bags of plastic coloured eggs to hang on your trees outside. This is a tree in one of our neighbours gardens. It looks quite pretty when you walk past it.
I could just imagine what our neighbours in Sydney would think if we hung these on the gum trees outside our house
