Cottontail Bunnies

Last year the pair of cottontail bunnies had a baby...they hung out in our yard and we even got to watch the mama nursing the baby under the peach tree nearest to our back porch...we sat on the steps and enjoyed....Our ducks would go up to their fence and visit with them and watch them...it was quite a sight to see...we'd know the bunnies were near when we saw the ducks up next to the fence visiting!  The baby used to hop back and forth through the duck's electric fencing!    

This year all three bunnies still come hang out every evening and into the night...our yard is a safe refuge for them and they don't seem to mind us sharing their space!  Debbie always says 'hi bunnies" to them as she walks through the yard or to the garden. 

Also this year there are three young ones that play "leap bunny" and "chase"!  

Our garden is safely fenced and we've never seen them eat anything in the various flower beds that we'd care about...one good thing about not having a dog...yard bunnies.  =) 


One evening last week, one of "our" yard bunnies was just sitting in the back yard, facing the house, perfectly still listening to our music...."A Thousand Years", "Village Lantern", "The Motion Waltz", "Send Me On My Way", "If it's Love", "Barking at the Moon", "All Over Now", and the bunny left during an Ed Sheeran song. =)  Is a wild bunny listening to 7&1/2 songs a record? He was really cute~ a little statue- head just slightly cocked, not even chewing his cud! =)


The latest news!  Our "Yard Bunnies" had 4 baby bunnies! ♥ We are so happy and proud of them!  Pleas discovered them under the trees behind the compost bin and nestled in a deep pile of leaves!  So cute!  

 Watch your step!

That is one of God's many blessings to us, isn't it! This particular scenario of "yard bunnies" is actually a new one to me, but it is probably primarily unique because His people are unique!

Thanks for sharing life with us!
Love,
Allison

So sweet! I love bunnies. Growing up I had furry white bunnies as pets. I remember my two sisters and I holding a funeral for one of them that died. So fun that they hang around.
hugs,
