Bunny Boy is back! :-D
For new readers - Bunny Boy came to our garden three years ago as a tiny "microbun", as my husband called him. He was a charmer from the start - peeping through our patio glass door to human-watch... sleeping in my herb pot on my chives!
Every Winter he vanishes.. and every Spring he returns... bigger but still the same laid-back bunny we've grown to love. He's easy to recognise (rabbits do look a lot alike) because he has a scar above one eye. The first year of life he hurt his eye and we feared he might lose it. It was swollen shut for weeks and he spent a lot of that time lying under our barbecue feeling poorly and limp. But he did recover and the eye looks fine, except for the scar.
He used to sleep under the barbecue as a youngster, but last year he finally reached a size where he was too big to fit anymore. His new favourite spot last summer was sitting up against a tall birdbath. It's shaped like a mushroom and Bunny Boy likes to use it as an umbrella on rainy days. I'm hoping I can get some photos of him doing that this year.
I'm so glad to see him back again... snoozing in his favourite spot by the birdbath. Spring is officially here, it seems. :-)
