Happy Springtime . . .

Easter time and springtime flowers brings out
one of my children's favorite books. 
As the story goes, once upon a time there were four little rabbits,
Flopsy, Mopsy, Cottontail and Peter. 
They lived with their mother underneath the root
of a very big fir tree in the forest.
This book has wonderful illustrations.
Remember Mr. McGregor and Peter's garden mischief. 
Peter Rabbit was my son Scott's all time favorite book.
I love seeing my mother's handwriting in the book.
Amazing isn't it how ones personal handwriting
can immediately bring up the exact image of the person.
 I also like this Peter Rabbit pop up card I have saved for years.
Several years ago someone showed me how to blow the yolk out of an egg
and here are some of the eggs I have saved for many years. 
I still have six to eight of the eggs.
They are such lovely colors,
pale peach, blue and tan.
 One of my favorite photos of me as a young girl.
I loved my animals . . . 
Here I am with our newest litter of cocker spaniel pups. 
I like pink tulips to brighten the house on these early spring days.
Happy Easter
Happy Spring
Thank you for visiting me and for your comments.
Until next time,
Love, Lynne

What a sweet post Lynne! I remember reading the Peter Rabbit story to my own kids. I love the sweet photo of you and your puppies. So cute. When my sister laughs I hear my mother's laugh and she says the same about me. ;) Little reminders of a loved one now gone. I wish you and Jack a very lovely Easter weekend. Blessings. Pam
