Urban gardening and Easter eggs galore
You can do something for your immediate environment, entirely off your own bat. Just go and plant some flowers in a public place – you’ll make the city that little bit greener, that little bit more cheerful. The place will also smell a whole lot nicer.
Strolling through the Friedrichshain neighbourhood on Easter weekend, I discovered a little artwork: an urban flower bed, including Easter eggs!
The egg is a symbol of life and renewal. Painting Easter eggs and hiding them for an Easter egg hunt is a very widespread custom. Long ago, Easter eggs were intended as a sacrifice to Ostara, the goddess of spring; today, they serve more as a symbol of friendship.
