A sure sign of Spring - I saw a rabbit in the back yard today!!
Looks like time for the professionals. That is real cute. Something I cannot do here.
We get snow, but rarely enough to build a snowman (once every 5 or 10 years). They accidentally sent some brick forms for making snow bricks to the local Walmart. They couldn't even sell them for 10 cents each. I suppose they threw them away.
Cool snow bunny. I wish I could say seeing rabbits is a sign of spring; I see them commonly year-round here! I'm fortunate that they haven't eaten any hosta leaves/pips of mine, at least not yet. Our outside cat will eat them if he can catch 'em, though. He's a good deterrent.
There were rabbit tracks in the snow everywhere a couple of weeks ago. The raptors have finally returned after being absent for 3 years following our Joplin tornado, hope they do their jobs and get rid of them again! There are foxes too for bunny population control. My cat is too old, well fed and lazy to bother.
They've been at my bird feeders, scoring the sunflower seeds the birds have dropped. I look out the front door about every hour at night and there seem to three of them. One runs west, one runs east, one runs south. My dog runs north. It's odd. Rabbits seem to flourish up and down my long driveway, but I rarely find rabbit damage on plants. However, we have given up trying to grow burning bush, which is just rabbit candy here.
They also find parrotia persica very tasty, too...:(
