Finally, after eight days of rain, Easter Sunday dawned, just as it should, with bright sunshine. I was chomping at the bit to bop down the bunny trail at my favorite Park.
But first, treats awaited me …
Before I left, I hopped online to send an Easter greeting to everybunny and discovered a text from my good friend Ann Marie. She had dropped off an eggstra-special treat for me at 7:08 a.m. This is the second Sunday in a row Ann Marie has stopped at my house in the early morn. Last Sunday it was birthday cupcakes. Today I discovered dyed eggs sitting in a bed of Easter grass in a bag bearing a bunny picture that Ann Marie had drawn. I also got a big chocolate bunny which will be my treat tonight. I feel very spoiled and special and I’m thanking my friend once again in this post.
It was great to be back at my favorite nature nook …
I arrived at Council Point Park, the first time I had walked there in over a week. I drove down one morning and before I got out of the car, big splats of rain landed on the windshield and a fine drizzle began, so I headed for home.
I was amazed how lush and green the grass had become over the course of the week – well, three days of intense rain helped out in that regard. The Park had a green glow as leaves appeared ready to unfurl, giving the bare trees just a smidge of color.
So, what did I find along the bunny trail, er … walking path this morning?
Blue sky, a butterfly, birds and buds …
As I set out this morning, I told myself that whatever images I saw today would remain on the camera’s memory card for a few days until I got caught up, not only with everyone’s posts here on WordPress, but on other social media sites as well.
However, as I walked, the sun streaming down, feeling the warm air, I couldn’t help myself … I was snapping pics here, there and everywhere and knew I wanted to share them today.
Since no trek to Council Point Park is complete without squirrel shots …
I sure would have enjoyed tacking on a few more miles, but I didn’t want to overdo it, since I only walked twice this week, just minimal amounts in the neighborhood. By the time I arrived at the last loop, my furry and feathered pals were MIA. Unbelievably, not a single squirrel came to greet me, most likely having returned to their respective nests to spend Easter with their family.
I know they enjoyed their peanuts, just look at the faces on these munchkins while they’re munching their peanuts. They look as happy and content as we did when we enjoyed our Easter meal, don’t they?
I, too, was content, happy to enjoy this Easter Sunday stroll.
