There appears to be an abundance of bunnies in Alyth today.
We have just enjoyed a beautifully sunny and warm weekend and I'm full of hope for a lovely summer this year. I do hope I'm right.
With only two weeks till Easter, and full of the joys of spring I decided that today was the day to start putting my Easter Window display together. Oh yes.. there's another shield at stake but I fear the competition will be fierce this time round.
So would you like a sneak preview ?
I'm not quite finished and I think I will rearrange things a bit more until I am satisfied but here is the progress so far.
I've been crocheting bunnies and carrots and daisies to my heart's content for the last couple of months. I think somehow I would like to create a hill for the little guys to play on though that's going to require some thinking about.
I love my 'easter tree' decorated with eggs and ribbons. It reminds me of our holiday in Eastern Europe this time last year, where the trees in the town squares were decorated in ribbons, and where the fabulous Easter markets were an absolute treat.
I'm not liking how bad the paintwork on my windowsill looks. A reminder of how harsh our winter was and a reminder that I need to speak to my painter to get things tidied up again.
And here are some more bunnies along the street in my friend Mel's window.
I love her daffodils on the back cloth. They are made from cut out paper petals and fairy-cake cases.
It's such a simple idea but they are really effective.
Hopefully I'll have some more windows to show in the next few days.
