This morning I watched as the three baby bunnies took a literal leap of faith out of their nest into the big world. How exciting! I’ve written many times about the rabbits that live in the yard.
About 2 -3 weeks ago the dog was sitting quietly, watching out the backdoor window. When we came over to see what had his attention, we saw this:
Neither of us had seen a rabbit gathering dried grass before. She carefully gathered a mouthful of dried grass from a pile of clippings and carried up the deck steps and hopped into a tall planter. She could not reach the planter from the ground, but she could by hopping from the steps into it. The planter is 2 -3 feet off the ground.
One of the three babies. They were starting to move out into view – although I could only get a photo through the screen door glass. They are barely 3 inches – so cute. This morning when I opened the blinds, I could see one leaning over the edge of the planter. That’s when I noticed that 2 tiny babies were already on the ground, scurrying under the deck overhang. As I watched, the last one took a leap of faith into the big world and joined his siblings. Would have been great to have had my camera but it was over in about 4 seconds. It was so cool to able to see the big event!
Hope your day is a happy leap of faith!
