What a difference a week makes. The long Easter weekend was a very sunny one. Temperatures are at long last rising to levels that start feeling more like spring. Finally, some flowers started to appear where just a week ago a good layer of snow had covered the landscape.

Vilnius looked a bit deserted on this Easter Sunday, the long weekend gave many an occasion to spend a couple of days elsewhere with family and friends. Yet, the churches were all filled to capacity with worshippers. Many of these faithful, particularly those with children, could be seen waiting outside the filled church.

Egg painting is one of the Lithuanian Easter traditions. Some families have elevated it to an art form. Some very colourful, other clearly painted with organic material.
