So Who actually Runs this Place?

Let's get things perfectly clear once and for all... my name is Flopsy Rabbit and I run this place.

This garden is MINE!

NO-ONE cuts the lawn without my permission.

I will lie here regardless of how much you yell and make RRRRRRR lawnmower noises.

Yes, I know you're standing so close
you're almost in this photo your daughter took,
but I don't care.

I will not allow you to chomp up my clover and dandelions!

I will lie here in a Bunny strop and glare at you both...
... and my sibling, Cottontail, is right behind the hedge
ready to fight for our family honour.

...or at the very least sulk impressively.

Okay... so I allowed you to cut the lawn eventually.
Do not be fooled!
This was MY choice
and had nothing to do with the fact you are fifty bunny-feet tall.


We chose to let you cut the grass to leave us more room to flop...
and sprawl...
...but just wait till next time.

LOL great story Michelle! They remind me of the rabbits in the book Watership Downs by Richard Adams - they aren't afraid of those hrududus!

Watch your lawn-mower. They're going to sabotage it while you sleep, pull out spark plugs or whatever.
