A few mornings ago I woke up to find that the rabbits had escaped their hutch and had played long and hard before the sun came up, and when I found them at dawn they were flopped on the ground, resting and exhausted from all the frolicking that had occurred.
Rabbits are such funny little things!
The rabbit above is Lillibel, the baby of our brood. If you’ve never seen photos of our adventure with a litter of rabbits, you can visit here. It was very fun to watch them grow and become real rabbits, but afterward we had daddy-rabbit fixed so no more babies! I had the rare privilege of witnessing the birth and even seeing the babies nurse a time or two (rabbits are notoriously sneaky about these things) and we kept back one girl baby that looks just like her mama. In fact, I have to look hard at the two of them before I can tell them apart any more.
One thing is for sure, they are enjoying the greening up of things very much, as they are my professional weed eaters. I pick them a nice breakfast bouquet of dandelion, clover, random weeds, and lettuce each morning, they love it!
Hope the arrival of the new season has put a spring in your step and that you’re enjoying the new greening of the world. I am so happy to see new leaves on the trees each morning, and things begin to bloom. It’s like a little miracle each year, isn’t it? Welcome, spring!~
