Hunny Bunnies

Aren't they adorable? Yes, we have had a bunny nest in our front yard. My own Honey Bunny has been giving me an update on their progress for awhile now. Normally I would be running outside to take a peek and "ooooh" and "awww" myself, but I have actually had a bad experience with a bunny nest before, so I've kept my distance. He loves the outdoors and all kinds of animals so this has been fun for him to watch them grow.
Now what bad experience could I possibly have, you ask? Well, in our other house, we had a bunny nest in the front yard and I went out there and took all kinds of pictures. Lo and behold one day they were out of the hole and I took more pictures. The next day they started dropping like flies! (They all went to that great bunny place in the sky.) I was sooooooo upset, thinking it was my fault and the mother had abandoned them. So, I vowed never to go near another nest! But, Dear Hubby says it was a terrible rain we had that made them cold and they died.

Either way, I have stayed away.

These pictures were taken by Dear Hubby yesterday and he insisted it was ok...even though I've been hollering "don't get too cloooooooooooooooooose!"

But last night, we had a horrible thunderstorm. I hope they are ok. They sure are cute! It is very rare when my DH takes pictures and then hands me the camera card and says "you should blog about this." So, today's post is for him. Maybe I can even get him to type a line or two later on in the day. Stay tuned on the bunny update!

we had bunnies once at my mom's and they got this thing called bot flies.. it was so sad. I don't think you did anything to make the mother leave because I think they eat grass and greens pretty young...;) Jen R

Oh, THE STONE RABBIT, says to tell you how totally precious those little baby bunnies are! Baby bunnies always seem to be put in a nest right out in the open where so many things can happen them! My neighbor found a little nest of bunnies in her yard not too long ago--she showed them to me and we counted seven sweet little sets of ears. That night there came a terrible storm. She said when she checked the nest the next morning--they were gone! We assume mama moved them before the rain filled the nest. At least, we hoped so! Loved the little pictures your husband got of the little furry wonders! Thanks for the share!

Aw, these are so cute. The only thing I love more than bunnies are BABY bunnies. I left you an award on my blog today.

You hit the head on the nail with what you said, "that it tastes like a smell". That is so true and I can't believe I never thought of that.

You're good!

Have a great week.
