Look what the Easter bunny brought!

A little bit early, but Lily the caramel and white foal with the spots on her forehead and tail, arrived on Good Friday, not Easter Sunday - too heavy for that bunny perhaps?

This photo is of the new baby at seven hours old. Mum happily munching straw, and baby obviously already steady on her tiny feet.

One of my god-daughters breeds mini-horses, among the many other wonderful things she does. And this peaceful photo was her Easter greeting to me.

What a beautiful little creature. As with all horses, I'm in love all over again.

The promise of spring, the breath of new life, the joy and hope that this new life carries, all renew my optimism that perhaps despite the unusual start to spring this year - it will be a better year in a lot of the environment than I had first thought.

May this weekend bring you peace, hope and joy  wherever you are and whatever you do.
