Views of the Neighborhood – Easter Tour

Happy Easter, everyone. In celebration of the holiday, we are going on a brief hunt for Easter decorations in the neighborhood. We are catered today by Forthright in Austin, TX. Our entertainment is The Corrs.

Menu

Drinks – You name it, we’ve got it.

Picture of an old time school bus

So, let’s get on the bus.

You may remember this from last year. However, this year has a surprise.

A bunny appears while you read the message.

Eggs in the ground cover.

A tiny library, a pickup, a gnome, and some eggs.

Bunny mailbox topper.

Another more philosophical bunny mailbox topper.

Running bunny.

Two bunnies. Can you find them?

An egg flag.

Happy Easter door decoration.

Well, that’s it for this year. Now is the time for food and entertainment. I hope you have a great week.

      1. I’ll take the American breakfast. Over easy with the bacon. Never tried sourdough toast. Sounds great.
        We will be l be at my sons house for brunch and dinner. 49 people. Ugg. Too many for me. I’ll find a quiet place I hope.
        So, Happy Easter to you and family

    1. They went on a long retirement and never really came back. They did an album in 2017 but haven’t heard much from them since.

  12. I’m not going to be online much today, John, but I HAD to stop by Fiction Favorites to check out your Views of the Neighborhood post. I enjoy these SO much, and today was no exception. Loved all the decoration, but the first bunny mailbox topper made me SO envious. I can think of lots of places I’d love to put one just like it. Gorgeous. And yes, I found the two rabbits, and loved the pop-up sign. Your neighborhood continues to impress me every week! Thanks so much for sharing, John, and Happy Easter! πŸ°πŸ™πŸ°

    I’ll go with the Americana Breakfast – I start most days with sourdough toast with jam. Hash-browns are always good. It’s hard to choose between bacon and avocado, but I’ll go with bacon.
