OK. I admit that I'm a purist.

The only proper Peeps are - well - peeps.

Marshmallow bunnies are marshmallow bunnies.

And all of the other marshmallow shapes are just wannabees.

Nothing Could Be Finer.....

I venture to say that there is no more beautiful spot in the whole of Creation than North Carolina in April.

Anyone who disagrees has never seen the spectacle of dogwoods and redbuds in bloom.

They have never stopped their car in amazement at a wave of azaleas sweeping across a stranger's yard.

They have never been struck dumb by a profusion of wisteria.

Their loss.
