Hoppy Easter

Long story short, I planted a big bowl of grass.  I had my plans for it to be a cute centerpiece with eggs hidden in it.  The grass grew much faster than expected and got a little unruly.  There were discussions as to whether or not it would be a good idea to trim the grass.  In the end I decided that I didn't want a bowl of mowed grass on my table.  I decided I liked the long and shaggy look, it was cute kind of drooping over the sides.  Last night I went out on an errand, and Chris and Chickie apparently had plans of their own for said bowl of grass.  It was smooshed down with carrots and pictures for the Easter Bunny.  And it was left by the...fireplace.  What holiday is this anyway?  
Apparently the Easter Bunny enjoyed a soft place to much a carrot snack and some grass.  I think he may be slowly inching in on Santa's territory.  
He left Bentley's goodies in a dump truck instead of a basket.

I'm thankful for Easter saturday and looking forward to Easter Sunday.  Yay Spring!!

UM, just about 10 days before easter. It grew really fast!
I think it was rye grass. Christina Hinckley is the grass for easter expert. She gave it to me. There is a link to her blog on here, but i'm not sure if she mentioned it at all.
