Today I share some photos of a korovai in its “natural habitat” as I take a little break to catch up on spring and Easter activities: pysanky writing, гаївки / hayivky workshops, planting seeds for my garden and even making maple syrup in my backyard (that’s right, we’ve tapped two sugar maple trees and boiled the sap up to nearly 2 liters of syrup so far!)

This korovai was made for an intimate wedding last year in Ottawa. These photos beautifully capture the moment in time – notice the hand sanitizer on the church tetrapod 😀
