I thought I had already posted this, but I couldn't find it. A few weeks ago, I was mowing the grass, and I saw this cute little baby bunny under the tulips! So cute, so I stopped and took pics with my phone!

Mind you, I was NOT mowing the tulips -- only the grass! But when I came up the other side and got close, I saw the baby bunny run away. And I then I saw baby bunny #2 run a different direction. And I thought, awwww, how cute!

And then...and then...I heard and felt WOMP-WOMP-WOMP under the lawnmower! Baby bunny #3 had run under my lawnmower!!! It was bad...completely by accident...but I didn't even like looking at the pile of bloody baby bunny in the grass!

Anyways, my area of town is overrun with rabbits, and the remaining 2 bunnies have matured a lot in a few weeks! I've noticed a couple of hawks flying and perching here lately, so they also have noticed our abundance of rabbits!
A lazy Sunday evening...

Do you think the rabbits know that I'm a vegetarian?

A few years ago, a car accident occurred in my front yard. Using the insurance payment from the at-fault driver, I had my front yard re-landscaped. Before that happened, I salvaged as many plants as I could from the front yard (knowing that it would be completely re-done).

I planted the salvaged plants in a side area, which had been completely overgrown with ivy. I cleared the ivy, planted the salvaged plants, and the resulting side garden is now starting to come into its own! The area contains tulips, many peony plants, plus coneflowers, Columbine, Balloon flowers, etc., and looks pretty nice. I think a layer of mulch would be the next step, but I'm satisfied with a 'salvaged plants' garden!
