As I was watering plants a few weeks ago, I was startled by movement under the bark in one of the container boxed maples. I didn’t want to move in too quick unless it was something that would jump out at me like a rat. As I moved closer, I noticed the fur looked like rabbit fur and sure enough, there under the bark were five little baby bunnies. They were so cute. I try to keep bunnies out of the maples because they just love to chew them. My mother wants them out of the gardens because they chew everything they find especially her favorite, oriental and asiatic lilies, in which she anticipates seeing them every year. This year, she had quite a time keeping the rabbits away from them. Anyways, I couldn’t kill the bunnies, how could I. I can’t even kill a spider that lives in the house. I have to move it outside.
The bunnies are adorable. I’ll let them grow up. Now, they are bouncing around through the containers and in the gardens. I probably will regret it later but I can’t help myself when it comes to animals or insects. They have their own life just like humans. It is just a different life than ours. Humans keep pushing the animals away…….They have to live somewhere………So, if they come here, they are very welcome.
