Rabbit Love




I have loved rabbits for as long as I can remember.
All breeds of rabbits, their soft fur, and long ears, floppy or standing tall.

When I was younger, most of my time was spent caring for, and raising rabbits, they were my constant companions. 
My school friends spent  their pocket-money on weekly cinema-visits and ice-creams, mine was spent on rabbit food at the local pet shop.

It's a love I have carried into my adult life, although sadly, I am rabbit-less these days.
We'll have to see what we can do about this inequity.

I can picture you as a young girl caring for rabbits, lots of rabbits. Rabbits are adorable, aren't they. A bunny would be in heaven living there with you and in your beautiful home and gardens. I do hope you get one, or two. :)

I agree with Henny, you need to get a rabbit or two... (but 2 could be dangerous if you're not careful). I too had a bunny named Misty when I was growing up.

I think you need a rabbit in your life again! We've had several.. some very friendly, one... the current in residence, not so much. :-)

My daughter once arrived home from school with a tiny rabbit we called her Andy , she lived in a fish tank and didn't like to go outside she had half of her leg missing she had been attacked by a dog we think so she often hopped around the house and would sit and look at our dogs through the wire screen door but would never get to close, she also chewed a very nice pair of red boots of mine.

I also can see you with rabbits and hope you decide to treat yourself to one. It would be a very lucky rabbit. :-)

First of all... I LOVE Your Blog!!!
It is so gorgeous!!!

My hubby and I raised rabbits at one time when our children were small. They were just family pets...the rabbits, not the children :)

Have a beautiful day 💮

Rabbits are fun to watch . I know they can be litter trained. You are a good pet owner. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

My brother had one given to him when I was a kid. He built this large hutch for it and everyone seemed to feed him. Whole cabbages from the garden, fresh cut grass, what ever was available.

many years ago now we rescued two bunnies from the place I kept my horse. The silly guy thought he would breed rabbits for food. Well that did not work well for him as we took home the babbies. They lived in the house and were litter box trained. It was not until they got older and decided to eat the wires in the house that they moved out to the sheltered porch. They had the run of the outside deck and had a happy life. We adored them.
