Bunny Burt and Friends

It's been a long wait but it seems that spring may have finally arrived here. Easter came and went all cold and snowy but luckily it melted the next day. Meanwhile, Burt got in touch with his inner rabbit.

 My garden is still mostly brown and I have to say it's really not much to look at but at least it's a good camouflage for the bunnies. This one is all fat and sassy from feasting on my roses all winter.

Meanwhile, the indoor bunnies enjoyed a more colorful scene. These slightly scary vintage ones seem pretty happy to be out of the drawer they've been hidden in for the last fifty years.

Of course, some of the bunny wannabes are less enthusiastic than others.

Others get a little too excited, eventually getting on other peoples nerves.

Then there are the industrious rabbits. While packing up the Easter decorations I noticed that the bunnies have all the responsibility for the eggs! Not just for the delivery but the decorating too.  

This guy looks pretty satisfied with his egg painting.
Happy 420 Mr. Bunny!

Yet another rabbit hard at work.

Then there are those that become sacrificial bunnies.

Doomed by being tasty, they seem resolved to their fate.

 Earless but delicious.

Happy Spring!

Thanks for stopping by.

 Do you have a favorite bunny?

Burt's Top Ten Signs of Spring

April showers are a sure sign that spring is finally here.

The daffodils make a tentative appearance. 

There are those sudden and unpredictable weather changes.

Wait! Whaaaaat????

The snow shovel gets traded in for a garden spade.

The terrarium gets cleaned up and ready for seedlings.

All those seed and plant catalogs start to pile up.

At least there's lots of time to make plans for the garden, while it's snowing! 

The primroses arrive . . . at the  garden center.

Last year's maple syrup is almost gone.

Of course there's lots left in the stores, it's just not from these particularly tasty maple trees.

The tornado warning sirens go off for several minutes every Saturday at noon.

Friends get together for coffee.

and a good prank . . .

on April Fools Day!

Hope you all are enjoying a wonderful spring day!
With or without snow.
