Easter eye candy.

I got a bit snap happy with my camera and thought I'd try to make up for the lack of posts lately with a few photos of all things Springlike and Eastery. I do need the practice, my photography skills are very poor, I haven't even read through my instructions and so know very little of the functions on my camera. So bear with me whilst I frolic in the blissful ignorance of admiring my lovely subjects photographed with a bare minimum of talent.
So pretty, I just have to remember to duck as I walk by the tree!

Bunny biscuits!

An Easter gift, well received.

Me Grandma's old vintage brolly.

Carrot cake made by my sister, definitely not one of your 5 a day though!

Larger than your average real carrot, reckon she got a tad carried away there.

Triple chocolate brownies.

Cupcake eggstravaganza!

Death by chocolate laden cupcakes!

Elderflower cupcakes, so lovely, I could eat one everyday.

Invasion of the tea towel bunnies!

This clay egg I made at school in 1981, I'd pity the poor hen that would have had to lay that one!

A permanent fixture outside the Bakewell Pudding shop.

A jaunt around Bakewell mid Easter hols.

A Mother's Day present from my eldest bunny :)

From my other two bunnies I received The Hunger Games books (first one is already away and in danger of being read before bedtime).

 Our 2013 Easter tree adorned with many kiddie makes.

So there you have it, told you I got carried away, this isn't all of them so think yourselves lucky and I even threw in a couple of pics of my Mother's Day gifts and the lovely Bakewell too. I may improve my photo taking ability, who knows? Then again I may just carry on inflicting any old snaps upon you regardless.

  1. So many cakes, so little time! I'm drooling over all those chocolate lovelies and that carrot is just wild! I haven't read the Hunger Games books but really enjoyed the film - I'm just going to wait for the next ones to come out - too many books etc etc. Don't worry about the photos. They don't have to look like works of art as long as they get your message across. I'm happy to look at your snaps any day. :-)

    1. Thank you so much Julie,
      I am enjoying taking the photos and looking back at them to compare previous years occasions. It's so simple now with digital cameras isn't it? I'm so glad you're happy to peruse them :)
      I saw The Hunger Games before starting the book but I am still thoroughly enjoying it, I'm not sure whether I should watch or read the next one first though!
      The carrot was mad, my sister is ever so slightly bonkers, she had a competition with our Dad once to see which one of them could decorate their Christmas cake in the most distasteful way! Not appetising I have to say! X

  2. Some lovely and colourful pics of your Easter and spring so far :)

    We didn't have an easter tree this year - and I missed it. So next year we will be back to doing one :)

    1. You're very kind for saying so Vicki, thank you, more pics to follow I dare say!
      I bet you missed it, they are so pretty to have around aren't they? It's lovely to get out the old bits and bobs the kids have made to hang on the branches and not such a huge job as putting up a Christmas tree! X

  3. Your photos look pretty good to me! Some lovely spring pics there and all the cakes look delicious!
