Note to self: Bunnies are super cute to watch sprinting across one’s garden, nibbling at rose leaves and foraging amongst the clover.

However. One’s should also make sure one’s garden is not half buried in thick shrubbery that make for excellent hiding places!

Mother Hen was feeling a bit of a fool last night, trying in vain to capture two wiley bunnies with highly attuned escape instincts! My buns ended up sleeping in the garden as we gave up the chase. Both still alive and well this morning, however, and were easily captured. Good thing the fox is on vacation, right?

Thumper headed straight for his store bought food, and Apple to her bowl of store bought lettuce, so I guess captivity may have more to recommend it than was previously thought.

I am only glad my lesson was not learned at the tragic expense of my bunnies’ lives! Black and gray bunnies on dark country lanes are not a good combination, and my nearest streetlight is a half mile away. They would have been goners, for sure.

Bad, bad, bad Momma Hen…

  1. Freedom? Pretty poor imitation of Mel Gibson channeling William Wallace! Maybe if you paint your face blue? 😉

    As for your buns sleeping in the garden, wish I could do that with mine but I don’t think we;re talking about the same thing!

  2. Yep, kids do like to run wild sometimes, don’t they? But there’s nothing better than that “home-cooked” dinner!

    So glad you were able to catch those bunnies. (Next time, perhaps you could videotape the chase?)
