Post image for Signs of Easter spring up around town

To wish our readers, Happy Easter/Happy Spring, we’re featuring some signs of Easter that popped up around town.

The Easter basket with egg handle is a 25-year tradition, always ably filled with flowers by J Floral Art.

The Alleluia sign is at Trinity Church in Menlo Park.

About the rejected peep, the four-year-old said to his father, “Dad, you finish then.”

Finally, that’s an Easter bunny ice sculpture carrying those jelly beans.
