你认为复活节彩蛋不会长在树上?来看看德国东部福尔克尔•克拉夫特家的花园,然后再想想吧。
You thought Easter eggs don't grow on trees? Check out Volker Kraft's garden in eastern Germany, and think again.
克拉夫特在1965年开始在复活节装饰这棵苹果树,最开始上面只挂了18颗彩蛋。但是经过逐年累积,到去年为止,这棵强壮的果树上已经装饰了9800颗彩蛋,上面巧妙地装饰了各种饰物,从亮片到海贝壳应有尽有。
Kraft's apple sapling sported just 18 eggs when he first decorated it for Easter in 1965. The number increased year by year; and by last year, the sturdy tree was festooned with 9,800 eggs, artfully decorated with everything from sequins to sea shells.
这次,克拉夫特家的这棵树上的彩蛋已经达到一万颗,而且他表示不会再继续挂了。
This time, Kraft has reached 10,000 — and he says he's stopping there.
这位76岁的退休老人说:“我不会再继续挂了,因为我没有精力了。否则我就得躺在鸡蛋上睡大觉了。”
"There will be no increase because I do not have storage capacity anymore," the 76-year-old retiree says. "I would have to sleep with the eggs otherwise."
萨尔费尔德镇的这棵彩蛋树已经成为了旅游景点,每年吸引着数万人前来。在德国,复活节用彩蛋装饰树是一项风俗,但一般只在小部分地区流行。
Kraft's tree in the town of Saalfeld has become a tourist attraction, drawing thousands of people every year. Decorating trees with colored eggs at Easter is a tradition in Germany — though usually on a smaller scale.
数十年前,克拉夫特开始用塑料彩蛋装饰这棵果树,但随后开始用真鸡蛋,并在家人的帮助下清空鸡蛋的蛋清和蛋黄,在鸡蛋壳上绘制图案。
Kraft started with plastic eggs decades ago, but later switched to real eggs and enlisted his family's help in blowing out the insides of the eggs and painting them.
他说:“你可以看见47年后树变成什么样子,当树逐渐长大时,妻子清空鸡蛋,孩子们开始绘彩蛋。”
"You can now see here what develops after 47 years, when the tree grows, the wife blows the eggs and the children start painting," he says.
