Chicks, Snowdrops and Egg Hunt

These fluffy yellow chicks  are all blinged out for the Easter Egg Hunt. 
They found an egg hidden in the garden amongst the Snowdrop flower. Now all they need is a basket to put it in...has anybody seen their basket?
Happy Easter

Yellow Daffodils

After an "egg-citing" Easter Egg Hunt, what child wouldn't want to go frolicking through the meadow with the Easter Bunny...
gathering  glittery yellow daffodils along the way.

Easter Lily

Along with bunnies, chicks, decorated eggs and candy, lilies are a big part of Easter celebrations. It's known for its huge trumpet-shaped flowers and it's powerful fragrance, which is famous for causing a stuffy nose.
This lily that the little girl is smelling is almost as tall as she is...she may need to break out the Kleenex and the Zyrtec!

Easter Egg Hunt in Arizona

We do Easter egg hunts a bit differently here in South Central Arizona. We do dye hard-boiled eggs, which promptly go in to the refrigerator. Theses eggs are for eating not hiding. Temperature can get up to the mid 80s around Easter time. If the Easter Bunny hides the hard boiled eggs and any of those eggs do not get found, long about the end of the week you will know it...the whole back yard will smell like a Science project gone wrong. Instead the Easter Bunny hides plastic eggs with surprises inside...candy and money. The Easter Bunny messed up big time one year. In a effort to be more health conscience he filled the plastic eggs with stickers...that was a Easter Egg Hunt disaster! Since then the Easter Bunny has redeemed his self with the “good” kind of candy and dollar bills.
So what do we do with the dyed hard boiled eggs... we eat them, deviled eggs, egg salad, hard-boiled egg with a bit of salt and pepper

In your Easter Bonnet...

Spring has sprung, the weather is warmer, flowers are in bloom and the Easter Bunny is on his way. It is time to celebrate with a new hat. Not one of those silly "Fascinators"  but a real old fashion Easter Bonnet, with all  the frills upon it...
then when you get to the Easter Egg Hunt all you have to do is take the hat off, turn it over and go off  looking for the hidden eggs.
