Easter Trees


Happy Easter from my favourite Easter bunny, although I'm very biased, Captain Rupert.




Captain Rupert and I love easter. You see rabbits everywhere. We have put up an Easter Tree this year. I had hoped the leaves would come out a little for easter but it must be far too cold in our house.







I think Captain Rupert might think sticks are for chewing and got bored of looking at the Easter tree and a little disgruntled there was not any toast to be had, so sneaked of to his make shift burrow under the spare bed. Where he sat out all the cold rainy weather this afternoon. If only the Easter bunny could fix nice weather for Easter.




A Piece of cake or a piece of ........... The healthy option is to have a sweet juicy flower, or all the flowers I planted in my pots!

What a wonderful blog. Cpt Rupert seems to be one lucky rabbit. A cheeky lil cutie. I love your countryside photos, especially the white and brown dot you glimpse at from your window. Looking forward to your future posts. Greetings from the Mediterranean and have a happy Easter

Hi Jo, I was so hoping we were going to get an Easter bunny post from you and Captain Rupert. I love the latest painting. I can spot the bunny biscuits on the plate and I notice Captain Rupert is looking very interested in the flowers left on the plant, but for how long? Have a lovely Easter weekend Jo. x

Hi Joanne,
I love the easter tree, I didnt get my bits out of the box this year. I am naughty.
Captain Rupert looks very handsome with that lovely fur and those big eyes. I expect he has beens sniffing round the chocolate. I think today is definaetely a toast day as so cold.
Snow in the garden !x

Captain Rupert looks very much at home. Taking Easter in his stride I'd say.

Lovely Easter pictures and another beautiful painting ! Easter means Spring is on its way !! Yipeee, although we now have snow here, but the sky is blue and the birds are singing. We don't have any wild rabbits in Sweden, we have hares and I've seen quite a few lately. Have a Happy time, Ellie

Oh, Captain Rupert, you really aren't up on the table, are you? You are! Yay! (You'd get in trouble in my house for that). I absolutely love your wonderful paintings.

I'm in love with Captain Rupert, I'm working this weekend and have given orders to Mr Twiggy and Twiglet to buy some goldfish. Just as well I'm not going cos I'd have to buy a Captain Rupert clone :)
