“Mommy!” my little one yelled from the side door of our house, “Come quick! There’s a sleeping bunny!”
I came running. We get bunnies from time to time. Bunnies in our yard always remind me of Watership Down and I always apologize if ever I have to I start up our hrududu and drive off while they are nearby.
Never have we seen one ever taken a nap in our yard. Sure enough though, there it was in the fur, lying on its side and snoozing just 10 feet from our door. I ran for the camera to get a few shots but I had trouble focusing well through the screen. So I got brave and slowly opened the door. The bunny didn’t move. Maybe it knew that I was the one who had put out the celery leaves for her the previous day. Either way…
Slowly, she roused herself,
…and yawned again. Finally she sat up for a minute to collect herself. Then she hopped off.
I put out some carrots for her after that. Fingers crossed she comes back to find them.
