Just hoppin' by...

 Happy Easter Everyone!!

Don't you just love's my favourite Season ...especially the colour changes of tree foliage and the warm, still days that always seem a little dreamy to me. l also love taking a walk down the creek near mum's place where the huge oak trees shed layers and layers of leaves that you can kick and rustle through almost up to your knees....and l feel just like a little kid again...even if just for a few minutes.

..... and l've been inspired by these autumn days for my Easter pics.... A "woven" nest of Virginia creeper vine and apothocary jars filled with water... which was coloured with a drop of food colouring.

The little rabbit was bought at the flower cute and the fact that he was so light and small went in his favour since l had to carry him around all day..... Though l noticed lots of people carrying loads of plants at the station on the way home.

This is a group of photos taken of the apothocary garden at the Melbourne flower show. The skeleton especially was a big talking point amongst the crowds checking it out. 

Test tube tulip display.

This was my absolute favourite pretty.

Such a lot of work would have went into these display models...the model on the left's outfit was made entirely of seeds.

Here are my two favourite pinterest easter pics. Above ..........Easter Island :-)) heads.

While l was trawling l found out a few interesting bits about Easter which l thought l'd share.

Nearly 90 million chocolate bunnies are made every year.

Easter is celebrated on the first Sunday after the full moon that happens after March the 21st - Spring Equinox.

The first chocolate eggs were made in Germany in the 19th century.

Every day 5 million marshmallow bunnies and chicks are produced especially for easter.

Pysanka is the specific word used for the art of egg painting.

76% of people prefer to eat bunnies ears first and only 5% start at the feet.

Anyway have a wonderful easter break.......thanks so much for dropping by.

Til next time,
