The Easter bunny has been careless and on his travels has managed to lose all of the eggs that he had in his enormous basket.
As this is a virtual Easter egg hunt we need you to describe the egg, where you found it and any obstacles – OCD or otherwise that you may have had to overcome in order to retrieve the egg.
It’s a beautiful spring day and the sun is shining so I decided to go for a long cycle ride in the country. So I got on my bike and off I went. The sun was warm on my back and as I cycled through the country lanes I passed by hedgerows that were full of blossom, wild flowers growing in profusion on the grass verges and baby lambs frolicking in the fields.
After about an hour I decided to stop to eat the picnic that I had brought with me. I stopped near a brook with crystal clear water in it and sat down to eat my picnic. Suddenly I saw a flash of red and gold on the other side of the brook. I put down the sandwich that I was eating and went to investigate.
As I drew closer I saw that it was a brightly painted egg, someone must have dropped it. But how could I get it when I don’t like getting wet? Then further upstream I saw some stepping stones in the brook that I could use. So I used the stepping stones to cross the brook but half way across I slipped and fell in. Oh the shame of it I looked like a drowned rat, not a good look for a fox
Finally I reached the egg, it was a beautiful ceramic egg painted in red with a pattern on it using what appeared to be gold leaf. I put it in my now soggy pocket and returned to my picnic.
It’s strange to find a painted egg out in the middle of nowhere Perhaps someone’s organised an Easter egg hunt. I'm going to pack up my picnic and go and see if I can find more eggs, preferably one that I can eat
It must be an Easter egg hunt as I can see more people searching in the distance.
