New Bunnies on the way!


Tonight I was watering the bay window flower bed an saw a male cotton-tail watching me at the edge of my largest Lantana. It looks like the female has decided to give birth to her young under the cover of the huge Lantana. Here’s the male watching me water:

I shot this photo only about 6 feet from the rabbit and he didn’t seem to care much. The rabbits have gotten used to me being in the backyard and seldom run off because I’m always weeding, planting, or working on something in one spot, and do not make rapid movements that scare them.
Here is the lantana that the babies are being raised under:

The male rabbit was standing near the base of the “climber rose” on the left of the photo, right at the edge of the lantana.
I just hope that the neighborhood kids do not discover this and will leave the rabbits alone.. Hopefully, I might get some photos of the new-born. That would be WAY too cool!

I like rabbits there are lot's of them in my garden. ( i see around 15 to 20 each day ) all sizes very small to very large. They dig to find new soft roots which is a bit of a nuisance but i could'nt bring myself to do anything nasty to them. They are just part of a wildlife garden.

A lot of people don't like them as they can do a lot of damage, but they are so cute. I for one could never hurt them.
Please post some baby photo's if you can!

AAAHHH yes I know exactly what you're talking about. LOL one of the critters sampled my first tomato LOL. There are plenty more higher up out of their reach thank goodness. Yes they can be distructive but it is part of life and their survival. they have to eat too.

Actually, the rabbits do me a favor and eat plants that I never should have planted in the first place! {chuckle}
Helps me make wiser decisions for the next growing season..
Thank you, Bunnies! :-)
