Remembering Bunnyville

Ode_to_bunnyville_1

For each of the last several years there has been a place in a field close to home that we dubbed Bunnyville. Home to a family, or perhaps families, of Mountain Cottontail rabbits.

Each spring and summer a new batch of bunnies would appear like clockwork and inhabit the flower filled field and forest edges nearby.

However this year we are Bunnyless! Predation by a cast of characters which include the Ermine, Golden Eagles, Bobcat, Coyote, and Foxes over the previous winter appear to decimated the Rabbit population in our area.

It is a strange thing to experience a summer without out the rabbits although the Penstemon in are garden are relived. Yet a summer without baby bunnies of groups of teenage rabbits frolicking in the fields is a stage thing indeed.

The grasses a growing longer without the natural lawnmowers….

They always put a smile on our face and it is sad to realize the sun may have set on Bunnyville.  There is always hope the rabbits will return after all it only takes a couple.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend and here’s to remembering Bunnyville.

Super baby bunny

Wait, whats that rustling in the bushes.
A bird..no
A mouse…no
It’s super baby bunny!

Smaller than a squirrel yet bigger than a mouse with quadruple  the cuteness of both. Mightily hopping onto rocks and eating every plant that gets in their way.

Super baby bunny brings brightness to start the day.

Have a wonderful weekend.
