Egg Hunt



We walked up the hill looking for eggs and the Easter Hare, with Hannah and Kim and Tom.




And the eggs were hidden and hard to find but the grass was green and the gorse rich with flowers smelling of coconut. Shy violets and celandine begin to bloom and dot the lane with colour.




Tangled in the twisted branches of the ancient gorse bushes secret golden eggs lay in small clutches.




We walked across the top of the hill to look at the sea. In the lane the high stone walls sheltered us from the worst of the wind. On the top our ears were blown flat, eyes narrowed to small slits. But the sea was huge and dancing. And on the way back we helped the children find more hidden eggs, wrapped in bright foil colours and shining.
But we did not catch even a glimpse of the Easter Hare. Maybe she was resting.

You may not have seen the Easter hare, but I'm sure she saw you, beautiful ginger cats!

That first photo looks suspiciously like there is an Easter Cat who lays the eggs!

Hi again Ginger Cats....just stopping by to say that I mentioned your egg hunt walk on my post today. I also put a fun video of D.O.G.S. in an Easter parade! You might enjoy it.

You found all those Easter Eggs! That Thing found the Easter Bunny but he didn't find any eggs!

That looks very inviting! The wee ones here had to settle for a hunt inside. It was either that or wear snowshoes!

Nice to see your side of the world waking up from this cold. Ours seems too tired to finally shake off the rest of the ice and snow and let Spring in.

Hello again, Gingers....I asked my typist, TRHO, to take out the video that was imbedded in my blog so you can more easily access it. She forgot about that slow downloading....now she remembers how unhappy it used to make her before we upgraded our internet service....we send lots of "sorries" and we think you can see the blog now!

Have a wonderful rest of the week.
