It's Bunny Time!

The last three days a very young rabbit has been hanging out under the Japanese Maple in front of the house.  It darts out occasionally to grab a bite to eat.  This is one reason I do not use chemicals.  What do a few out of place weeds in the landscape hurt compared to spraying chemicals?

It found a flower that had self seeded out in the gravel path and took a liking to the leaves. I laughed because the leaf was almost as large as the little bunny.  The ticks on its ears are an indicator of how bad they are this year.  The warm winter boosted their population.

I hope the little fellow makes it.  You could cup both hands together and hold it.  Between the hawks and the foxes, it will have to learn quickly.
