Easter decorations - but where are the shoppers?

 

I became a bit sad as I saw all the beautiful decorations in the shop windows for celebrating the Easter feast - but the shops are now closed and the rabbits will not find here any friend. Peter Rabbit and his friends love Easter, I should read those adventures again ... As I read yesterday in my newspaper the open Lindt shops are offering some Easter eggs ...

These are very cute Philine.
Philine: For sure, I could adopted them. The left picure shows a rabbit family. Many thanks, Frank!
Je trouve ces petits lapins très mignons.
Philine: Oh, j'aime le mot 'lapin', je l'avais oubliée - merci bien, Martine!

This just might be the first chocolate-less Easter of my lifetime Philine..
Philine: There is no lack of chocolates here, they seem to be essential for our souls. Many thanks, Chris!

Hopefully these will be sold next year, Philine
Philine: I am sure - or ordered online, many shope are now selling online their products. Many thanks, Lisl! Good to read that Boris Johnson is "stabil".
How adorable, Philine. All dressed up and nowhere to go. sad At least they are on display and can give a smile.
Philine: Yes, they gave me a smile, heel bedankt, Ginnie, I hope you are well, too.
Dommage que cette fête soit impacté ainsi ...on aurait bien besoin de fêtes les pâques ..tant religieusement que pour nos petits !
bravo a ce créateur
Philine: J'aime ton commentaire, merci beaucoup, Claudine!

This is bittersweet, Philine. We cannot buy them if the shops are closed. Some shops are open here and even the shop that makes handmade chocolate figurines is able to stay open. 1 person at the time inside the shop.... he is selling like crazy, people eat a lot of chocolate nowadays...
Philine: The same situation here, even the ice-cream salons are open. I got some chocolates, too. I think we should pamper us a bit every day! Heel bedankt, Astrid!

I never understood what dressed rabbits have to do with Easter. Especially ones that lay eggs - coloured ones.

I like this collage, it looks cheerful.
Philine: Yes, this was my purpose to cheer up a bit.
I have read Peter rabbit books to Joseph many times. He used to love The Flopsie Bunnies.
Philine: I own only two little books, but I love them. There is also a book Peter Rabbit's Easter surprise, I could buy it via Amazon in English. Many thanks, Bill, my special greeting to Joseph!

I can imagine children loving these figures.
Philine: I love them, too, and I like my book " The Tale of Peter Rabbit". As I was in the Lake District, we wanted to visit the home of Beatrix Potter, but it was not possible, sadly. Hundreds of Chinese and Japanese tourists were in the Lakes, only because of Beatrix Potter and her Rabbit books. But where they are now? Many thanks, Chad!
i like the ones on the left, Philine. the costumes are made with great attention to detail, evidently.
Philine: This is a rabbit family, surely inspired by Beatrix Potter. This shop is well- know in our city for its cloth designs , such ones as you can see on the left. Many thanks, Ayush! Singapore is often mentioned in our newspapers as positive example how we should cope with the corona virus.

Children in particular I'm sure would enjoy these displays. I've always refused to buy Easter Eggs as there is so much packaging with them and so little chocolate. I will continue to enjoy Green and Black's organic 70% cocoa bars.
Philine: I don't know these cocoa bars, they might be delicious and healthy. I am sure that you will find some Easter eggs during your bike rides Mr. Peter has hidden for you in the bushes and shrubs. I have just learnt the English phrase "Life is not a pony farm", really fitting in these difficult times. Many thanks, Alan!
Our Chief Medical Officer has reassured Island children that the Easter Bunny is deemed an essential worker. smile
Philine: This is a fine idea, many thanks, Care!
What delightful little characters, I never read any of the Peter Rabbit books as a youngster.
Philine: Now you have time enough to read some of these book, they are wonderful. Many thanks, Brian!
