A lazy long weekend, time to create a bunny paradise, time to rejoice in a public holiday we do not question, despite our lack of religion. Time for jigsaw puzzles, games, digging up potatoes, book reading, craft, chocolate and fudge making, time for playgrounds, bush walks and lazy lolling about. Time to say yes to small children's simple requests. Time to light our first fire for the year, the earth is turning, the days are getting shorter and cooler.
A wet chilly Easter morning, we don gumboots and warm clothes for the pre breakfast hunt.
On Sunday our youngest rejoiced in the Easter egg hunt, she kept saying "this is great" with enthusiasm and marvel. "This is the best Easter ever" she exclaimed, dad asked if the littlest Bowerbird remembered any other Easters and she replied she didn't. 2013 will be a benchmark in which to judge other Easters.
Tissue paper flowers made by the big Bowerbird. Just make a pom pom out of a few sheets of tissue paper, cut the petals to the shape you like, tie and then unfurl.
Happy Easter, I hope it was joyous for your family too.
