While my man finished weed eating around the raised beds, I pulled a few weeds that were left in some of the beds. All of a sudden, I looked up to see something come flying out of the vegetable bed containing the most grass. It was lightning fast...so I thought it was a field mouse. My man was wearing headphones, and couldn't hear me call for him. What was I to do? I waved my arms like some crazy woman to try to get his attention. Finally, he looked just as I grabbed what was frantically fleeing the vegetable bed. It wasn't a mouse:
It was the sweetest, but much afraid, baby bunny. I giggled with delight.
We had fun loving on them for a while. What a fun surprise. Before tucking them safely back in the burrow, I promised them that I would leave the tall grass in the vegetable bed that housed their burrow but only if they promise to not eat my tomato plants. I think they grinned from ear to ear. We will see what happens!
