It’s Easter and Hugh’s photo challenge this week is all about things that are sweet.
I couldn’t go past this photo (cue flashback) with 2 of my daughters at Easter time many years ago.
Weren’t they sweet?
I used to make a white rabbit cake every year when they were little. My mother in law started this tradition and I just continued it.
Fast forward to just a week ago to when I took this next photo of one of these same girls with one of the huge inflatable white rabbits at Enlighten in Canberra. There were 5 of these rabbits scattered around the park for Enlighten 2016. I really believe that the world needs a herd of white rabbits to solve all the problems of the world at the moment.
Isn’t she sweet?? And she’s smiling in this photo unlike the first shot 🙂
We do seem to have a thing about white rabbits – I even featured one in my Wordless Wednesday post this week!! It’s interesting that our eldest daughter now has a real rabbit of her own as a pet, but alas, it’s not white!
You might be wondering about the signifciance of the white rabbits – well here is a report from the ABC.
Five giant illuminated inflatable rabbits are hopping into Canberra’s Parliamentary Triangle for Enlighten.
One of the most eye-catching installations is Intrude, featuring five seven-metre-high rabbits illuminated by stark white light.
“The rabbit for us culturally is a symbol of cute and cuddliness, Easter, and childhood stories,” she said.
“But also, for Australians, it’s an animal of destruction because it’s an introduced feral species.
“In a way they represent our mismanagement of the environment.”
Parer said her piece offered a great opportunity for Enlighten visitors to consider the natural world and their role within it.
“But if they just see them as giant rabbits, that’s OK too,” she said.
I must admit, to me they were just huge white bunnies!
Enjoy your Easter break and have something sweet!
