BABY BUNNIES IN OUR BACKYARD!

and my husband in his ongoing quest to get a nice lawn put down grass seed and hay a few weeks ago.

When he raked up the hay last week we were all surprised that a mother bunny picked a mound of hay IN THE MIDDLE of our yard to build a nest.

My husband saw two little ears, so we left a little bit of hay for her and then on friday it happened.

We saw her FEEDING not one, not two but FOUR babies.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen this so up close.

She must have gotten confused with all the hay, because as you can see, her nest is right by our deck.

I’m so excited and have developed, just over the weekend, a strong maternal instinct to protect these little offspring.

Ah, nature!  I have instantly fallen in love with these bunnies…

Once a mother, always a mother :)

  4. We have a bunny who takes a daily stroll past my patio. I’ve always wanted to feed it, but don’t know what they would eat. And I also wonder why the stray cats don’t bother them.

Tell me what you're thinking...
