~my Back Yard Bunny!~

I was sitting on my deck early this morning..
I had just finished talking to Amy on the phone..
Thanks for calling me Amy, it was great talking to you!
Well guess who came to visit me? my "Back Yard Bunny".
I've seen him about a week now around my yard.
What a cutie! I'm wondering if he has a family around here?
I'll have to be very careful when mowing my lawn.
I see in the one photo he was very close to some poison ivy..
I better get rid it before it gets me.
Oh just the thought of getting poison ivy make me itch!
I've lived in my cottage for 25 years now and this year
the poison ivy seems to be popping up all over the place..
Well, I just wanted to share a few photos of my bunny.
Hope he comes back again tomorrow :-}

Aw, isn't he cute? We have several that love to eat under the bird feeders out back. Sometimes the young ones will chase each other around the log pile. So fun to watch!

Thanks for sharing the pictures:)

Mary Dear:
He is a real cutie : )
I love your lawn; dicondra(?) It gave thought of my childhood lawn that my Mom, now (99) use to have me sit and cut out the dandelion plants; she was the original Mam of "Use everything. . .throw nothing away"; I would take in the dandelions and she would wash them (leaves and flowers) for salads and something else for good eats.
Your baby bunny sitting on your lovely cottage lawn took me way back in time : )
Thank you
Big Hugs

Carole, The lawn you see in the bunny photos is under my HUGE oak tree. That short green stuff (by the poison ivy) is all violets. The taller stuff is some kind of flower that blooms in the spring. Oh your Mom sounds just like my Mom & Grandmother (how I miss them). We too had many dandelion salads (only the greens) in our day. We also had what I call mustard greens, they were a very dark green leafy plant that had yellow flowers on them, but if the flowers turned yellow the greens were to old to eat. You had to pick them before they bloomed. We would drive around with my parents to find farmers fields with these greens in them and stop and ask if we could pick their "weeds".. They thought we were crazy! My Mom would then soak them then par boil them & then fry them with olive oil & garlic..How we 4 children loved them! It was an Italian thing I guess...LOL..
Oh that bunny is so sweet.. he seems to be here a lot. He runs under my bushes. I try not to scare him. He loves eating my lawn. I do not put any chemicals on my lawn.
Thanks for the memories darling!
~Mary~ :-}

There was a feature on the news last week that the poison ivy is especially bad this year and more caustic than usual! It is invasive and they really only had vague theories as to why it is so much worse. Just thought you might like to know that it isn't your imagination!

Mary Dear:
My oldest daughter and I still fry mustard and collard greens : ) I think the things our Mom's and Grandma's generation did was country type cooking, all nationalities; Italian, German, Irish, French, Portuguese and other's that migrated to the US. My family roots are in France, Holland, Germany and Portugal. I am such a "city" person I would not know poison ivy if it bit me : ) I truly wish I had stayed in a small town setting instead of thinking I was so grown and leaving for the big city : )
I am a small town girl at heart : )
from the hand stitching I love to do to the homey qualities in all that I do and want to do. You are such an inspiration to me, my Dear Mary. Your spirit, gentleness, kindness is everything I look to.
Thank you

Mary,the bunny is adorable, but the stuff you call violets is considered a weed here in Louisiana. I have pulled and dug and it still comes back.
