What becomes of a dragon tooth?

Algol demanded that the Easter grass be kept even after the decorations were removed. I thought he just liked a green patch but he had managed to slip in something besides the grass seed. He had already thought nothing besides grass would grow in the tray, but today he sees something else...

Algol is quite surprised...

... something is coming out of the grass patch.

Algol: It worked! I grew an armed warrior!

Deimos: What is this???

Algol: This is my body guard. I slipped a dragon tooth into the Easter grass patch, and it grew into an armed warrior, just like the old myths tell!

Deimos: He is kinda small.

Ninja: Nnnnngggh.....

Deimos: And a bit clumsy, too.

Ninja: *!#¤/*?§@&&*!!

Thuban: The dragon tooth must have been a milk tooth. Those are not very efficient, you know.

The ninja is getting tangled in his weapons...

Ninja: **?&%¤#!!!*@?&!

Deimos: Let's untangle him before he hurts himself...

Ninja: *"=&¤!%*!!!

Deimos: OK, I'll keep these just to be sure no one gets hurt. Fomalhaut, take his mask so that we can see his face...

Even without mask and weapons the little ninja looks rather fierce.

Deimos: Do you have a name?

Ninja: I'm called Hikaru.

Deimos: What does it mean?

Ninja: Something to do with light. Maybe it could be translated as "The Shining One"

Deimos: "The Shining One"? OK, we'll call you "Spark"

Ninja: Nooooo...

Deimos: Would you rather be called "Sparkplug"?


Deimos: OK, "Spark" it is.

Ninja: Nooooooooo....

Algol: You were supposed to be my body guard, but Deimos took all your weapons...

Ninja: Not all of them. I still have the swords left!

Well, well, well, I sure wonder what this pair will do in the future...

Eggie finds spring

Eggie has seen pictures of spring in other parts of the world, and she claimed that we must have spring, too, and find yellow spring flowers. It is actually still a bit early, but we did find something.

Eggie: A coltsfoot! It is yellow...

Eggie: Therefore it is mine...

Eggie: ... Everything that is yellow is mine!

Eggie: There isn't much other color here anyway.

Eggie: Even most of the grass is still dry and dead and yellow.

Eggie: The sun is also yellow. It must be mine, too!

Eggie: These hepaticas are not yellow. You can have them all.

Setting up Easter decorations

Eggie: My yellow bunny can play with the Easter bunnies and chicks in the nest of eggs.

Algol: Humpty Dumpty can babysit some chicks and the rest of the eggs.

Thuban: Here is a very big and special egg. This chick is trying to hatch it.

But wait - where is Rastaban?

It appears that Rastaban, Niks and Naks have found where the chocolate bunnies and chocolate eggs are. I should have guessed that, Niks and Naks can always smell where there is any food.

Well, now they all have fetched chocolate bunnies - except Eggie of course who wanted a yellow egg (who would have guessed that?)

Eggie, Algol, Rastaban & Thuban: Happy Easter!

I wonder if Humpty Dumpty would want a chocolate egg, too? Better not ask. He might consider it cannibalism!
