The Big Egg Hunt
On Shrove Tuesday 21 February The Big Egg Hunt London 2012 will be launched by Fabergé, which has a history of creating rich Easter eggs. For 40 days and 40 nights over 200 hand-adorned eggs created by leading artists, designers, architects and jewellers will be displayed in central London (title link). Once the hunt is over, the eggs will be auctioned for two charities: Elephant Family and Action for Children. The cracker I've shown is Pretty Polly (2012) by Karen Hollis of Art In Bloom (CLICK). She painted one of the best elles in the Elephant Parade London 2010 (CLICK). Why Pretty Polly? you may well ask. Parrot tulips, the biggest and most ornate of spring-flowering bulbs, best grown in greenhouses to avoid damaging winds.
