Is that the Easter Bunny?

Or maybe that was one of the Easter Bunny's elves.  Do Easter Bunny's have elves?
 Maybe they are just the Easter Bunny's sisters and brothers.  After all, they are rabbits, and you know that saying..about breeding like rabbits.
The only eggs this rabbit left behind were very dark, oh, must have been at least 85% cocoa, very mini eggs.  The kind that only dogs and other creatures that eat disgusting things would like.

I was so enthralled with the sun coming up just over the trees before 6:30 am, that I didn't see the rabbit at first.  It's a big one, and I've seen it behind the barn, but...
It...Is...Not...Supposed...To...Go...Near...Any...Gardens.


Them's the rules.  We can all get along if the wildlife just obey the rules.
Live and let live.
But once the rules are broken, well look out.



And dear bunny, that is one of the gardens you are next to, and the kohlrabi is just germinating.
So I figured it was time to give you a warning.


I got the two vicious border collies at the door. 
I got them all wound up.
I said to heck with those awful, tiny little dark 'rabbit eggs', 
they could have fresh rabbit meat for breakfast.  
I flung the door open and unleashed the hounds.  They charged out of the door and down the stairs off the deck.  Luna made an arc to the left and barked at the sheep on the other side of the fence.  Jake ran in the right direction, but he was looking back at me.  
The rabbit turned and ran back under the gate and up the alleyway.
Neither dog saw it.
I ran out in my nightie and crocs and tried to get them to pick up the scent.
Nothing.
Useless creatures!
I know, I know, they don't want to kill the goose  rabbit that lays the golden chocolate poop eggs.

Happy Easter!

  3. That's a naughty easter bunny! My Gran's garden has been destroyed by rabbits - they've dug hols, eaten plants etc.

    You need a Jack Russell!

    "Lovely landscape you have!
    It looks like you are fairly close to the sea. Is it warm enough to swim there in the summer?
    I like the through the ear perspective. Here's a little challenge for you:) Take one with the landscape in focus and the ears out of focus, and see which one you like best:)" - Oh, but that was the plan all along! But you know point and shoots - they just focus where ever they want to. But I shall accept your challenge!
