Of Bunnies & Butterflies, Baa lambs & Bees

We hope you all had a wonderful Easter and were able to enjoy some of this marvellous Spring weather. It has been good to leave the stockroom and custard creams behind for a few days and don our wellies and summer frocks and head for the hills for a spot of walking, talking, animal spotting and chocolate scoffing.

It certainly has been "Famous Five" kind of weather hasn't it? Long days spent outdoors with the promise of Aunt Fanny's famous fruitcake to welcome you home at tea time! The odd glass or two of ginger beer to keep us going and mercifully not a glimpse of Uncle Quentin to spoil the day...

When we returned to the Emporium it struck us that many of our treasures reflected the kind of halcyon days that we have been enjoying.

Butterflies and bees fluttering from flower to flower.

Lambs gambolling in the fields

Children playing in the farmyard

And, wherever you look, bunnies appearing from nowhere!

Long may it continue...
