The word must have gone out.....she's a sucker for rabbits,especially baby ones. Yesterday I could hardly take a step without some phantom fur flying away from me into the tall plant area......yikes....how many bunnies can one have.....but they are adorable..really...But I am mad at them now, this morning...I have been nurturing some morning glories..heavenly blue one..they have just begun to climb the trellis....Drats!!! Gone! all of them..except for a wee stick of a stem! and I know who did it!
Bunnies! Oh....some people say glories reseed so easily..not mine.....and I love the magic of them in the morning...and now gone!
Ha! but the bunnies haven't seen the ones growing in pots (red and blue) on the deck....What do you think I should do? I was going to move them close to a trellis and let them grow that way...but I know bunnies can reach pretty high for a morsel of sweetness.
My garden is exploding with life....birds everywhere...and the wrens...have arrived..I have a love hate relationship with them. They sing a song I find delightful...but I do not like their possessiveness! The Cedar waxwings are delighting me as they fight with the robins(my favorite garden bird) fight over the delicious red berries on the Serviceberry bushes. Oh such energy going on.
And Handsome,my good old feral male cat, showed up this morning...been gone for weeks..that rascal..that cad..He knows my house when he's hungry! Wouldn't you think after over 5years of feeding and healing and sheltering him..he'd stay awhile and be grateful..no.. Eat stretch leave.... But this day I hope he keeps walking becasue I couldn't bare him eating one of my bunnies...despite their bad behavior. Oh, and did I tell you...my very good buddy,Mary, brought me a 3 week old abondoned feral kitten last night.
yep, every 2-3hours..bottle feeding. My cats,Webster,Miss Kitty O'shea,and Abbey do not like it one bit1 Oh woe,This wench won't be spending too much time in the garden today...but maybe, I could take the baby out a bit and sit and watch the garden as I hold the precious one who has no mommie....but me....Life is not fair.
Oh....the photo.....I took this in Galena last week...thought you'd might like seeing it...I was thrilled...last year..few butterflies.
