Peeps. Yes or No?

Peeps. Yes or no?

The 2012 NY Times slide show showing how peeps are manufactured is still available. I ate one tonight. 32 calories. I could not detect any flavor other than sweet.

I bought them on sale post-Easter sale for just 99 cents at the fabric store

Since 1953, Peeps.

Turns out this is my FOURTH post about Peeps.

There are Peep Haters says Julie Bosman in NYTimes 2012 article . “But for such an innocent, marshmallow-and-sugar pastel candy, the Peep is surprisingly polarizing. Peeps-hater Web sites show pictures of Peeps dipped in liquid nitrogen and smashed with hammers. Admirers dress them in costumes and arm them with plastic swords. Matthew Beals, director of the 2009 documentary ”The Power of the Peep,” said their appeal endures because ”they coexist as both cute and horrible.”

Balloon Bunny On Highland Avenue

I was driving up Bunker Hill , turned right onto Highland and someone was snapping a photo of this display. Of course I pulled over to the curb, rolled down my window, snd did the same.

Happy Easter

The Redbud is in Bloom for Easter

Eastern Redbud tree. It was a beautiful day today before the downpour of rain arrived Saturday night. Just look at that blue sky.

A friend planted the Redbud  in my backyard as a memorial to my parents after they’d passed. Thanks, Ginny.

It was my parents favorite type of tree. The way the pink blossoms emerge along the entire branch makes it a stand out amongst the flowering trees.

Peter, his mother and his sisters

Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail. The ones who did what they were supposed to do.  Mother Rabbit returning from market. And Peter. Looking enormous compared to the rest of his family.

No one I know, actively collects ceramic figurines these days.

Or wants to dust them.

But they look dear to me. I took them out from behind the glass to photograph them. Peter certainly is larger than his mom.

I know, two cute rabbit posts in a week.
