Getting Ready For Easter At Kirks


Clucky, the Easter egg laying chicken

It was off to Kirkcaldie & Stains for our traditional visit to see Clucky the Hen who lays chocolate covered marshmallow Easter eggs.
We visit Clucky every year, the build up to Easter would just not be the same without her.


Clucky has just laid an egg

Kircaldie and Stains department store has been around since 1863 but of course Clucky hasn't been around that long.  My Nana and Grandad used to take me to visit Clucky and that was many, many moons ago.

As you can see from the video above, Clucky really put's a smile on your face and it's amazing how many adults still come to see Clucky and put in their 50 cent piece to have an egg laid for them.
I still do..!!!!!




After our visit to Kirk's (Kirkcaldie & Stains) we had a quick visit to the botanic gardens to see what was in flower now.  It's been a little while since we were last there.




There were some lovely vibrant colours so I had a bit of a sit down and just enjoyed the sights while Salem went and did some fort building.  It keeps him busy for ages.
I had to call out for him when it was time to leave.
We ended up missing our bus anyway so had to wait for the next one.




It's going to be interesting to see what the gardeners are going to plant for the autumn displays.
