West Seattle Easter scenes: Peep-le do the craziest things …

Richard e-mailed WSB to share these photos, explaining:

Every Easter Sunday morning for the past few years, we’ve awoken to find the fences, shrubbery and landscaping in the alley between 36th/37th/Findlay and Juneau [map] artistically festooned with hundreds of yellow marshmallow ‘Peeps’. We have have a couple neighbors who we think are the ‘Peepers’, but we’re not sure (and we don’t feel like getting up in the middle of the night to catch them in the act!). The kids and families along our block love this, and we think it’s a great and fun tradition. I’m attaching some pics of their ‘artwork’. Happy Easter! (p.s.–I took all the pics this morning at 8:30)

ADDED 2:26 PM: And from somewhere else in West Seattle – Karen sent a photo, saying her daughter discovered the chickens love Peeps too:

ADDED MONDAY MORNING: We got one more batch of photos from a mystery sender. This is our favorite:

    If you are a Peep fan, check out “Project Peepway” on YouTube.

    We call that “chicken football”– when one hen gets something absolutely delicious and the others chase her all over the yard to take it away!

    Cute…but I’d hate to see those Peeps left out in the rain! What a sticky gooey mess. (Or can Peeps even dissolve? I know they are fairly indestructible). Oh, and there is something so very wrong about a chicken eating a Peep. (maybe it was a bunny Peep?)

    It was a bunny peep. Otherwise it would just be gross! (And usually the chickens eat organic and free range)

Sorry, comment time is over.
