The Holler bunnies are practically tame,
probably because we feed them carrots,
with the express understanding they eat the carrots and not my flowers!
What we have here is a failure to communicate,
not all that uncommon among neighbors.

Incredible captures. And good luck with those neighborly negotiations! Let me know if you find something that works. 🙂
Oh course I won’t ever, but they are so darn endearing it is impossible to do anything but laugh. They love it inside our fence, carrots, a smorgasbord of pretty flowers, and no COYOTES! 😉 😉
It’s long eared and gangly compared to our cottontails.
Yeah, there are different sup-species. Some have shorter ears and legs. These are desert cottontails~
Oh Cindy, what wonderful photos of these cute ‘interlopers’! *grin* Cher xo
That is such a perfect name for them! This is exactly what they are, interlopers!!! 😉
*biggest grin* 😉 xo
So adorable! I can see why it’s hard to be annoyed with them eating your flowers!
If I keep out a continuous supply of carrots they prefer the carrots. It reminds me of trying to control teenagers! 😉 😉
I have trouble with groundhogs too 🙂
We have gophers, LOTS of gophers!
No wonder so many hawks we have hawks too almost got too close to me yesterday coming in for one of my wild birds man do they start their decent FAST!
Yes they do. It is impressive to see! I had a great horned owl wing me one night when I was hooting back and forth with his or her mate. The actual mate was the one that gave me a warning swoop. I love these impressive raptors!
Awwww I love your bunnies! I love bunnies, so darn cute! Hugz Lisa and Bear
I talk to them in a falsetto voice and they just sit there looking at me. They probably have never seen such a dumb creature as me before, and are stunned by the experience!
I would talk to them too!!
And they would love you for it!
Cindy, our family has always held an affection for bunnies! While my children were between 7 and 11, we had a series of five bunnies. They “showed” bunnies while in 4H. Once my youngest daughter held her Snowball up to her lips to kiss, it inspired my children’s book, “Kissing a Bunny is like Saying a Prayer.” It had other ways children could show their gratitude for nature. This was made into a brochure I gave to all the kids in their club. <3
How perfectfly wonderful! That of course about sums you up Robin. Love the idea behind your book and encouraging children’s love of nature. It is mutually healing! <3
Buggs Bunny ain’t got nothing on these bunnies!! LOL!! 🙂 When I look at these photos I can still hear a song from my childhood, “Here Comes Peter Cottontail. Hopping down the Bunny Trail.” Thanks for the walk down memory lane.
I know the song by heart and still sing it frequently! We can’t ever lose the kid in us! <3 <3
Watership Down! I don’t remember the book (it was a long time ago) but it sure came to mind with these personalities.
I remember it, now that you mention it, and it is so apropos!
Ornery maybe, but oh so adorable. 🙂 Very cute little guys (or girls). 🙂
They are cute guys, or girls, and they have an amazing ability to more of both!! 😉 😉
Yes. They know how to add and multiply real well, but not so much divide or subtract. 🙂
so precious.. just want to hug one
Yep, they are downright huggable!
Soooo cute, with those long ears and big bright eyes! 🙂
They are awful cute aren’t they!
There must be a big surge of bunnies around the world. They are so prevalent here and we just caught two bunnies in our vegetable garden behind the fenced in area.
Yep, the bunny population is clearly multiplying at The Holler too. It is making the coyotes fat!
We have coyotes too, Cindy, but they aren’t eating enough bunnies.
A course the wabbits would disagree, but the coyotes would see i 2 i w u! 😉 😉
These are cute bunnies, Cindy. 🙂
They are fearless too. They watch me as they eat my flowers!
I bet they eat whatever they want!!
You got that right and they want what I plant! 😉
“Once upon a time there were four little Rabbits, and their names were–Flopsy, Mopsy, Cottontail, and Peter. ” (Beatrix Potter) I always considered that I was “Mopsy” – not certain why, I just thought that it was a wonderful name.
Of course, you and I read all the Potter tales over and over as kids. We have that in common too, Mopsy. I related more to Jemima Puddle Duck. But like you loved them all, still do. Thank you Ms. Potter~ 😉
I must go back to read them all over again !!!!
I think, since you said this, I will do it too. How perfect. Thank you. The last time I read them was to my children when they were little.
Thank you Jackie. When they are itsy bitsy and first come out of the burrow, they are soooo irresistible!
That first photo looks just like Peter Rabbit! Cute neighbors 🙂
They are cute neighbors and except for their eating preferences, they never cause any problems, which you can’t say about all neighbors! 😉
Ha ha ha 😀
The Holler bunnies are so adorable! The first and last one are my favorite 🙂 So they love your flowers. 🙂
They have good taste. They love my flowers! 😉
I think I can see where the their name ‘cottontail’ come from. 🙂 Why would they go for flowers, instead of other parts of the plant I wonder, may be it is sweeter…or something like that. Cute troubles. 😉
That is exactly what they are, cute, funny, endearing, troubles. Come to think of it, that sounds like the very best of persons! 😉
🙂 It sounds like you have some great neighbours, Cindy! If only they could stop eating the plants!
<3 <3. You give and you recieve, reportedly. :3
We love those little guys – great photos!
They are pretty darn loveable aren’t they. I love it when they stare directly at me while eating my flowers!
They’re just saying thanks!
Yes, and I am saying it back!
I know some gardeners hate them, but I always remember “Happy” our pet rabbit whom I loved as I was growing up. My Dad used him in his stage performance as a magician, and “Happy” could behave beautifully as he was pulled, mysteriously, out of a top hat! (Otherwise he roamed free as a cat, and it was my job to keep the garage clean of his rabbit pellets…) Bunny rabbits , even beyond Beatrix Potter, are special to me.
Your bunny was Happy not Hoppy? Maybe he was both. Your dad was a stage magician? Of course he was, silly me. I am not sure, do you actually have a gondola for your river that you decided you wanted after living in Portugal, or do you just want to get one? I can’t wait to get more of these tidbit gem installments of your life.
We both loved bunnies as kids. I raised Dutch bunnies and used to get in loads of trouble when they nibbled bunches off my mom’s green naugyhyde sofa. I asked her if she thought it was the rabbits fault that her sofa looked like a big spinach patch?
She didn’t appreciate my humor…..
It’s all true, except for the gondola part. It’s nice that you had bunnies, too; we both know the naugahyde sofa cried out to be nibbled. (I once saw a bumper sticker that said: “I brake for naugas”)….and I do appreciate your humor1
Well, I basically am in awe of you.
Yep, that is what they are! <3
>>> “What we have here is a failure to communicate.”
Love that famous line by actor Strother Martin from the 1967 film Cool Hand Luke. Has a smart-ass cottontail ever replied with:
>>> “Ah… what’s up, Doc?”
I wemember the wabbit and the quote, but this is the only thing that really stayed with me from Cool Hand Luke……….
These are adorable! Such details! And the lowly cottontails are seldom photographed it seems. You are kind to share your space with them.
We are still negotiating our agreement. The posing for the photos was a significant concession on their part so I think I am getting the upper hand here……… 😉
They look similar, in a sense, to the scrub hare I posted 2 days ago. Little softer looking.
Your rabbits had floppy ears and looked kinda like this guy I found on pinterest:
Oh so adorable! When I lived in an undeveloped area in the Sacramento region (Davis in particular), I’d get so excited just to see a brief flash of one zipping across a field. I would so love opportunities to see them up close (in a non-blurry fashion) as you’re doing at the Holler Cindy. Thanks for sharing this privilege with all of us! 😀
When they first come out of the burrow, I talk to them in this ridiculous falsetto voice, hence they think I am strange and harmless to them. They are right on both counts. Plus I give them carrots. If you find young bunnies, sing to them and give them carrots, they will pose for you at length! :3 :3
Oh, thank you so much for these great bunny-whispering tips! I’ll try this out at the next opportunity. :3
Laughing, you rock my dear Lynn~
They are cute neighbors Cindy! May they find their way to carrots soon 😎
I do think they prefer the carrots to the flowers. The problem is keeping them in carrots….
Plant clover wherever you can! I found that once the rabbits found the clover in the lawn, they ignored my flowers. They love clover!
Those are great pix of your pretty adversary, though.
Ohhhh, thank you for the tip. I love these sorts of tips! I will try it. Someone told me to put vegetable oil on the nectar feeders to repel the bees and it works like a charm!
Maybe sink a pot in the ground? Clover will spread – it’s a weed.But rabbits love it more than I ever knew.
Ohhhh, excellent, I will try this~
Oh, my God, are they adorable! Those eyes are incredible.
I love seeing the detail in animal eyes up close. You always see a sentient creature looking back at you~
That’s true, Cindy. I’ve often thought the same.
So nice to be understood. <3
Wonderful shots, sweet subjects!
So kind of you and so appreciated to!
I’ll sleep smiling tonight. My son had rabbits that ate the morning glories down to the roots. They left nothing but I loved watching them. Those are some amazing photos!!!!
Good morning! I hope you slept very well and your comment makes me very glad I posted Peter Cottantail. Have a peaceful day & thank you~
Oh I love bunnies of all kinds. Great photos, Cindy! 🙂 <3
Thank you dear Natalie & Happy Monday my friend~
Have a great week my bunny friend❣😘
Excellent. They look as if they have come right out of a storybook. 🙂
Miss Potter’s as we both know and love. <3
I tried to send you a picture of Beatrix Potter, but all you got was Tink. Life’s like that sometimes.
Here she is!
Did you know a new Potter book, “Kitty in Boots,” will be published in September?
Danke schoen! <3
Sorry Cindy ! but my Wolf Totem like very much …!!!
Yes, my hawk totem too!!
My son Jordan too , i had sculpt his totem ….on the blog …!!!
How adoreable! Hopefully they do not cause too much destruction to your garden.
I have been talking to them about this, but I am not sure if they are listening…… 😉 😉
They are so so so adorable …. <3 <3
Ducklings and bunnies have to be two of nature’s cutest creatures! I am glad you enjoyed them~ <3 <3
Beauties. The last one especially makes me think of Durer
Oh, yes! I hadn’t thought of his most famous rendering even though I was just in his birthplace. Thank you for the reminder!
All creatures great & small!
Cindy, the rabbit photos are truly adorable! But, as a retired wildlife rehabilitator, may I suggest that you please not feed them carrots or any other fruits or vegetables. Native rabbits in the U.S., cottontails, have extremely delicate digestive systems. Feeding them carrots will usually cause enteritis, which can be fatal – especially for baby bunnies and even for adult bunnies. Their digestive systems need to have only wild native grasses and plants. Native U.S. rabbits are a different, and more delicate, species than pet rabbits, who are descended from European hares – but even pet rabbits need to not be fed carrots. You may check this information by asking any licensed wildlife rehabilitator who cares for rabbits. Here is an article on the subjecthttp://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/health/pets-health/9353529/Carrots-are-bad-for-rabbits-RSPCA-says.html
The only solution I know is to put screening around your flowers and not feed the rabbits. Thanks!
I had no idea Sharon. Thank you for the education. No more carrots for the cottontails! Be well my friend and thank you~ <3
Such wonderful shots, Cindy – such joy in them, and cheer, really, although the cheekiness in eating the blooms is particularly appealing 😀
It is appealing isn’t it! I love the way they look directly in my eyes as they eat my flowers! Cheeky is the right word! Cheers to you my friend~
His so cute ! And fantastic photos !
Ahhh, thank you! Makes me happy I posted. <3
Can I have a copy of that carrot agreement? They are eating my rudbeckia! 🐇
Laughing, yes I will forward it to you. Hopefully you will find enforcement more effective than I have. They tend to just eat the carrots and move on to the flowers!
Thanks for the laugh. Whenever I am watching my critter neighbors they are always well behaved eating my “weeds”. But when I awake in the morning, my hostas are eaten done to the stems, the tiger lily flowers have all been nibbled away and one flower I don’t know what it looks like because it is always eaten before I get to see the bloom…. Good luck.
Laughing with great sympathy! Oh yes, sweet little darlings, can decimate your entire spring garden starting at sunrise until you get up!
Very cute – and it’s always a failure in communication! Thanks Cindy, the pics are amazing! 🙂
So happy you enjoyed! I am experienced in the failure to communicate issue as I raised teenagers.
Aaaw!! Such stunning captures, Cindy. 🙂 <3
They are so darn photogrenic!
I feed mine apples, but it IS such a joy to see them hopping close to the house each evening in search of their daily treat. Lovely Images my friend! They Feel Like Peter and his sisters <3
Oh, I bet they love you and your apples! <3 <3
They really do. Its so wonderful each evening when they come down the yard to the doorstep and wait for me <3
The bunnies said, “I hare about you.” ／(=๏ x ๏=)＼
I heard them say they hare!!! <3 ／(=๏ x ๏=)＼ <3
Such adorable creatures!! You are surrounded by such beauty!! <3
I love my wild neighbors! They really do make the best neighbors~ <3 <3
Your rabbit photos are so sweet Cindy. 🙂
Thank you for your kind sentiments my friend & cheers to you!
They are! <3
Oh, Cindy, I just LOVE bunnies, and you’ve got some dandy photos here!! Don’t you want to pick one up and cuddle it?? Look how delicate their ears are, with the veins showing through. Yes, even though they eat everything in sight!!
I got on after school restriction for a week in seventh grade for taking the biology teacher’s bunnies out of the class aquarium and cuddling them during lunch. A nasty class mate told on me or the teacher would never have known. I would do the same thing now in a heart beat. <3

So cute <3
So glad you like them too!
Can you add a Twitter share button–yes, I’m that lazy LOL
For you, yes indeed! <3 And thank you~
You’re awesome 🙂
We all need variety in our diets. 🙂
Consider where you and I would be without chocolate……no, no, don’t do that, it’s too depressing~
I’ve had to give up chocolate for two weeks. Blueberries are just not the same.
No they aren’t unless you have them on cake with whipping cream……
Looks so cute and fragile
Yes, to both qualities. Thank you for noticing~
They do love the taste of roses. 🙂
Erckles! Now that would be a major non-non! Thank goodness my roses have so many thorns and there is so much easier stuff for them to reach to eat. They don’t like mint or herbs. I have lots of both! 😉
Cindy, they are adorable and so much tamer than here. Of course you know what happens to them here… Have you ever priced lapin in the shops? 🙂 xx
Laughing, no, but I hope it is VERY expensive! I was talking to my son who is a vegetarian (I am almost one now too) and telling him about how plants scream when vegetarians come near them (cuz I’ve heard them), and he introduced me to Tool’s song, ‘Disgustipated’ which was pretty damn hilarious. God forbid we take ourselves too seriously, too much of the time~
Oh Cindy you are so right! we do take ourselves too seriously. I’ve never been fond of eating meat and don’t even bring it into my home. However, when invited into share a meal with my French friends, I do try to eat what I am served. Yes, Lapin is quite expensive and forgive me I did not know what I was eating at the home of a friend but it was delicious. I’ve not had it again and that is okay. I must confess that I do adore good seafood and being so close to the sea here, it is plentiful… Please have a wonderful rest of the summer. Alas it always runs away too fast for me. 🙂 🙂 xx
I would never presume to advise someone what they should do or eat, so you have no worries about me Lea. I have a hard enough time telling myself what to do, and not do! Life to me without humor everyday would not be worth much and there is so much to laugh about in myself, in people who take themselves too seriously, animals, celebrity culture, everything! It helps to counteract the now daily onslaught of human violence and insanity. Be well my dear friend~
So cute! We same to have that same failure to communicate with our friendly deer! 😀
It’s a real problem. Don’t they have any compassion for the poor plants????? 😉 😉
So adorable when they aren’t in my garden!
They really are gorgeous little beauties~
So sweet, Cindy!
He’s here right now. I think he knows we like him~
Love these fragile looking ears…
Well, I am sure he can hear what we are typing….. 😉
it proves the fact, that big ears dont always lead to good understanding. Beautiful Pictures. I counted the hairs on the last pic and found 3 675 890. Did you also Count that?
Right! He listens and listens, just like the hummingbirds when I tell them to stop fighting. They just don’t get. So frustrating. Like trying to reason with Donald Trump~
Cutest bunnies ever! They are such fun to watch. (Those big ears do help them keep cool…as if just being a bunny wasn’t cool enough)
It does help to cool in this heat and of course they have super-sonic hearing. One of the bunnies is here right now, eating my garden and watching me. I think he knows we’re talking about him~
Gah! They are so cute! Even if they do eat your flowers.
Agreed! Where are you now Alison? Stil in San Miguel?
Gish no. We had two months in La Manzanilla, and then we came back to Vancouver at the end of May.
Thanks my friend and hope all is going well with you~
Please do the same, Cindy.
There really aren’t enough adjectives to tell you how fabulous these pictures are. I’m madly in love with the bunny and the pictures are just amazing.
Ahhh, people like you are why I love blogging~ <3 <3
They look like Bugs Bunnies (jackrabbits). Cute but they can probably do a lot of damage to flowers. It’s a failure to communicate indeed. Good pictures, Cindy. 🙂 — Suzanne
Pleased you enjoyed Bugs and his friends and cheers to you Suzanne~
Wonderful captures, love the innocent expression. ‘I didn’t eat those flowers…’ 🙂
That expression works like a charm too. Probably was evolutionarily highly adaptive back in the neanderthal days!
Lol! If they only nibble on your flowers, I guess that’s okay…. not?
Basically, whatever they do is okay. They live here and they are so loveable. I’m actually learning a lot in completely different directions than my previous life, since I retired, and have been living at The Holler.
Coming to Canada in about 5 weeks now, to hang out with the grizzlies in the Knight Inlet. It’s not like I’ve been waiting for this for over a year or anything……. 😉
such cute eyes…they look like chocolate buttons!
Like the bunnies our parents always gave us when we were children, chocolate or stuffed, to prove to us the world was a good place.
Great shots they are just too cute! My mom has problems with them too eating her flowers I hear about it quite often lol..
The deal is, there is nothing you can do about it except pray they have burrows so you can watch the baby bunnies when they first venture out. If you sing to them and feed them, they are like these watchful little wild non-pettable pets, that look at you as you type on your computer, as if to say, when will you come out and take my picture and sing to me? The wild birds do this in different ways too, so do the coyotes. It is pretty amazing….It has been a huge learning curve for me.
Thanks for your insight Cindy, sounds like you are very blessed!
You and Peggy should really get together on lecturing to animals, Cindy. You both seem to be equally effective. (grin) They sure are cute little buggers. –Curt
Without even meeting Peggy, I am certain we are equally effective. I bet we had a lot of practice being effective lecturing humans in order for you to come to this accurate conclusion.
You both rock my socks off~
Now I am smiling. Lots of practice, I’m sure, Cindy. 🙂 –Curt
Sweet. I agree though, it’s a pity our gardening neighbours can’t read the notices and signposts.
It’s like the hummingibird feeders which the manafacturer clearly labeled, “Bee and Wasp Proof!” Unfortunately the bees either can’t or won’t read.
Hey Cindy– does that work?? feeding them carrots? We have friends with bunnies in the yard often and they put in sprinkles in they flower beds that are motion sensitive to ward off flower eating bunnies! In any case, they are adorable!!
Yes, it works, but a blogger told me it makes the rabbits sick and I looked it up and it is true!
Reblogged this on Random Ramblings; Myriad Musings and commented:
Hehehehe…Velveteen Rabbit, or Watership Down?
A bit of both don’t you think! 😻😻
So sweet and those ears! Those ears!
So sentient and aware too. I can really see this on zoom looking in their peaceful eyes~
OMG, Cindy..I love these pics–never have I seen better bunny pics..u capture their unique persona perfectly…😻😻😻😍😍😍😍😘
Awwww, it takes a sensitive person to even know that bunnies have personas, which of course, they do! Thank you. <3 <3 😻😻
They r just bouncing with personality!!!
Adorable pictures, dear Cindy. 🙂
Blessings ~ Wendy
Visa versa 2Ux2 Wendy! <3
Stunning! I love those black, glassy eyes!
They are quite intense and look unblinkingly right at you!
Ich nehme an, dass dies ein Zuchtkaninchen ist. Bei uns sind die Feldhasen selten geworden, weil die intensive Landwirtschaft keinen Lebensraum mehr bietet.
Ja, die Wildkaninchen bruten hier und wir haben viele von ihnen! Hoffe, alles ist gut mit Ihnen meinen Freund~
Gotta love bunnies!! Adorable!! Your photos are exquisite, of course, you had cute models! I once had a bunny, his name was Benjamin (how original, eh?). 🙂
Sometimes a name is so perfect it must be reused! 😻😻
Absolutely precious <3
Awww, so happy you thinks so & thank you~
Don’t laugh, but I have always been afraid of rabbits!
No I will not laugh because I am honored you told me. Everyone is afraid of some things and it is not funny. I’m afraid of things too, but not you. You I love. <3
Love you too!!!!
That bunny is so Peter Rabbit! Such a fun pic!
He is every fictional bunny personified perfectly! Lucky little wabbit~
Yes…, they’re cute, and cuddly looking, and oh, so innocent acting…, but them dam’ cottontails ate my green beans, plants and all, and then started on the snow peas. “I’ll get that wabbit !!!” Great pics, but, I’m still mad at that darn bunny. Oh, well, guess we won’t be having snow peas or green beans from the garden this year. Hugs !
But just be pleased to think how much the bunnies loved you beans and peas! Laughing….I am being callous.
I hear your pain.
“Don’t eat my ganzanias you bugs-bunny, they are only now just starting to take off after 8 hard Holler years!”
Oh well, they are so damn sweet, whatca gonna do?
Hope you are well cuz~ <3
He’s fabulous, Cindy 🙂 And he looks like a little kangaroo.
He does! A kangaroo with very big ears! Happy Friday!
🙂 Yes, a kangaroo with big ears.
Tee hee hee~ 😎
I love your bunnies, Cindy. I bet you have a lot to do with them being ever so friendly. I had a bunny for a short time last year [evidence found in my rose garden] and saw him briefly a couple times but we’re a neighborhood and bunnies don’t last long, unfortunately.
Last night a twleve year old southern pacific rattlesnake showed up inside our fences. She is huge! I think the rabbits are at risk!
Yes, I think you are right about the rabbits being at risk. As kids, we had the opportunity to see lots of bunnies when Dad was mowing alpha for the cattle in winter. Often the rabbit nest would be mowed over and mother rabbit and her babbies would be exposed to the elements. Dad made it our mission to cover the nest with fresh alpha he had just cut and add pellets of grains they were used to eating in the wild in hopes they would survive. We were not allowed to touch. I’m afraid of rattlesnakes, we had a lot of them in Kansas. A few weeks ago I barely missed a coppermouth while I was gardening. Needless to say I moved real fast!!!! I’m feeling blessed my precious Bailey wasn’t with me as he’s such a curious guy.
700 new homes are going up behind us and anytime dynamite is used – the snakes that live deep in the earth have a tendency to relocate and we’ve identified several that have made their way towards our property. I’m not a happy camper about that.
700 homes, oh yuck! You have my complete empathy. And of course this displaces the rattlesnakes. The rattlesnake that is now in our fences is basically my fault. I feed the birds seeds and nuts which attracts the squirrels and bunnies. For this big rattler this is a paradise too good to give up. The only downside for the snake is us people. She moved away from us, but VERY slowly! She is huge and fat and hopefully not pregnant!
What a bunch of cuties! 🙂
They are! So pleased you like them & cheers~
Have a happy and sunny week-end…
Visa versa 2UX2!
oh my goodness how beautiful, you are very clever with the camera!
Ahhh, you are very kind to say so! <3
Wow!!! Fabulous photographs. I adore rabbits, these photos are exceptional. You are really fortunate to have such close contact with these bunnies.
Mrs. Rattlesnake showed up inside our fences last night. She is a huge twelve year old. I’d say the bunnies are in trouble! ):
Qué ojazos y qué mirada tan tierna la de los conejitos 🙂 Me encantan las fotos. Un abrazo y buen finde Cindy <3
Tu son una gran amiga! Gracias y Feliz fin de semana y abrazos y besos!
Loved the photos you took of the cottontails. I sent you a heart because my prior comment didn’t get through. Now I can tell you that they are the cutest shots. 🙂
Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness and persistance. WP certainly glitches which is frustrating, but I am glad you told me about it, or I would never have known!
Saw the title of this post, and I was thinking a plant but my mind was singing “Here Comes Peter Cottontail…” and low & behold the post opens with such a priceless picture of Peter 🙂 Wonderful series Cindy.
Ah, your subconscious mind knew you were going to see wabbits! Now we have a 12 year old rattler who is VERY big and very interested in the wabbits!
They’re adorable. Gosh, those ears! 😀
Amazing ears and eyes so they can run away from your kitty-kats!
Haha! Or vice versa! 😆
I think you communicate pretty well 🙂 Great shots, Cindy.
Well, it helps to have good friends, like you. <3
And good at multiplication! 😉
Extra cute! I just fed my cats a rabbit/chicken medley meal and now feel guilty…. 😼
Ooooooh, I feel your pain! But your kitty-kat really doesn’t want to be a vegetarian no matter how much you discuss it with him, or her. 😉
I only had a little pang of guilt. When I grew up in Scotland we regularly ate rabbit and hare. They used to be hung up, skinned, in the butcher’s shop…🐾
I have seen this in France mainly! (ʘ言ʘ╬)
Heavens Cindy, your first photo is just precious. Have you ever considered creating a calendar with all your wonderful photo’s? Perhaps a one-a-day calendar? They’re so worthy of it. I have to share your post with my California friend Bunny. xK
Ahhh, you are so nice I am super bad at even the idea of marketing. I really do hope Bunny likes the bunny~ 😉
I’m still giggling at the express understanding and the failure to communicate. Pretty funny, Cindy. And absolutely gorgeous bunnies and photos.
They look at you with total concentration and seeming understanding. I don’t know where our communication is going awry. But is the same dilemma I face with cats when discussing the impropriety of eating songbirds.
T was enjoying the stained glass (showed it to him for his study of Spain and Portugal) and then when I scrolled down, he cried, “AWWWWW!!!” at the sight of the bunnies.
Oh, I love him!! <3 <3
Wolfie is on the way over as quickly as possible lol The Holler bunnies are too delicious…I mean delightful to resist!🐾🐇
The bunnies will hide and the coyotes will relocate! Can’t wait to see him! 🐺 🐺 🐺
😀🐶🐕 They can run but they can’t hide! lol 😎👀🐇🐶🐕
When ya all coming??????
Have been gone for long time, but good to be back. Love these.
Love having you back! <3
Such sweet animals. I had a rabbit once. So cuddly. Beautiful photo story. Thank you! <3
Thank you more for your thoughtful self~ <3
waw!!! very cute
Welcome & many thanks!
Just exquisite ~ sweet little creatures 🙂
I think they kinda like us too! 🐰
These r🐰bbits seem tame and like to watch us!
The 🐇 and I thank you!
great close-ups! It doesn’t appear, though, that they stick to the carrot-only bargain 🙂
I have expressed my feelings to them repeatedly on this topic but they just are not listening….
