May I Introduce You To... the Baby Bunnies!


Today is the first day that the baby bunnies are able to be seen in the nest.  Oh goodness, I wanted so badly to hold one and give it a kiss on the head.  I didn't though.  Aren't they adorable?!

I posted my photographs sized extra large today so the bunnies would be easier to see.  In the first picture, you can see two bunnies.  They are getting so big!  I don't think they will fit in the nest too much longer.


In this photograph, you can see three bunnies. One is in the center of the nest and you can see another pair of bunny ears on the lower left.  You can also see a bit of the third bunny on the upper left.  In the nest, bunnies are all snuggled together next to each other and on top of each other.  It is highly likely that there are more than three baby bunnies.

The gray fluff that you can see in the nest is actually mama bunny's fur.  Sometimes the mama bunny will pull out her own hair to line the burrow.  (I think those of us that are mamas probably have pulled our hair out at some point during motherhood due to our children!!)

    1. Marilyn, we have enjoyed seeing them so much! I didn't see any whiskers. Maybe they are so fine that they are hard to be seen.

    1. Connie, evidently you can't keep wild rabbits. They are trainable but frighten easily - more so than domestic bunnies.

    1. Kitty, our home is just an air B&B. They will find their own little homes before we know it!

But oh! the blessing it is to have a friend to whom one can speak fearlessly on any subject; with whom one's deepest as well as one's most foolish thoughts come out simply and safely. Oh, the comfort — the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person — having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away. ~Dinah Maria Craik, A Life for a Life, "Chapter XVI: Her Story," 1859
