Gosh, how the months slip by so speedily. I find it difficult to credit, even thought it’s early this year, that Easter is upon us already.

Happy Easter

Easter bunnies

Hello! The Easter Sunday weather in these parts is good for the time of the year; itโ€™s dry and although the sky is filled with a mass of clouds there are patches of bright blue through which the sun may shine later. Itโ€™s still a tad chilly though and venturing outdoors without a coat or jacket is only for the brave or the foolhardy. We are betwixt and between at the moment as there is still a bit of spring to run before we tumble into summer. I love this time of year, the past-their-best daffodils may have there heads bowed but pretty as a picture magnolia and cherry blossom trees in bloom abound.

The shop shelves have been piled high with all manner of Easter eggs these past few weeks. I havenโ€™t bought one for myself, mainly because I left it to the last-minute and I couldn’t find a dark chocolate egg (seventy per cent plus cocoa content being my chocolate of choice). I have some Easter decorations dotted about the place: an easter tree hung with cute yellow wooden chicks and some what incongruously white wooden apples; some slate rabbits; and my favourite a set of two beribboned Easter bunnies.

I may not have an Easter egg but I do have a box of chocolates so I am off to indulge…

Happy Easter.

I took the photo as the sun went down over the Wicklow Mountains on Easter Thursday evening.
