The Easter "Bug"

I hope everyone had a nice Easter, I know I did, even though a stomach virus was going around before, during and after Easter week. 
Three of our family had it...Hubby got it yesterday. He's feeling a little better today, but is still in bed, so I'm staying close to home, putting away the last of the Easter decorations.


My sweet grandsons gave me a Gerber daisy for Easter. I still have it on the breakfast table.


The Easter bunny pancakes, I made, were a big hit with the grands. I put whipped cream on the banana tail for the five year old, and left this one with just the banana tail. The 2 yrs old grandson was in banana mode that morning...with chocolate syrup on the paws, in addition to the maple syrup. :) 
Sorry I didn't get a pic of the first one...hungry kids equal quick photos...or no photos. 
Thanks Sue for all the great ideas. 

I walked the yard this morning, looking to see how things are growing and what needed to be pruned, weeded, etc.


The earlier azaleas have finished, and the Pink Ruffles...


...the George L. Taber...


...and several others with names I've forgotten, are blooming.


The red tips are blooming and the bees' little legs are covered with pollen. I'm not a huge fan of red tips in bloom, because of the scent, but the bees don't seem to mind. 

Hostas are looking good, and I'm  hoping the caladiums will be up soon.




Last year I planted green and white ones, but this year it's Raspberry Moon and Carolyn Whorton. 

Well, that's about all. Guess I'd better go.


I really need to throw out that left over Easter egg cookie. ;)
