The other day, “The Rabbit” and I went for a walk. Just had to get away from the homework for a bit and clear my mind.
Last year I planted my whole garden on the other side of the driveway in an unused area of the farm. And because most of my garden was eaten by wildlife I decided to only plant there what they didn’t gobble up last year. Except for corn that the deer like to nibble on. So far, no nibbles, but I’m keeping a close watch on that.
Just as the garden came into sight I found this…..
Which is not unusual. I see them scurrying about all the time.
Then I noticed this….
One on each side of the garden.
And then this….
There are five rabbits in that picture.
They were running around, playing and having a big time.
Kicking up the dust…..
And my “Rabbit” just happened to capture it.
I moved a little closer and they poised to run.
But not too far. They went back to playing.
I moved a little closer, which was too close for them and off they went.
Running for their life, they are thinking.
I really like watching them. Especially when they don’t know they’re being watched.
It’s no wonder that there was little for me to harvest from the garden last year.
I have planted nothing there for them to eat this year, but two volunteer watermelon plants popped up in this garden.
I think I’ll let them grow and give the rabbits a special treat for allowing me to enjoy the special treat of their presence in the garden.
