Bunny Luuuuuv


Years ago when I moved in with My Rare One, she gave me this lovely verdigris rabbit lawn ornament to mark the occasion. Every summer we put it in the front yard beside the inukshuk in the juniper bushes. We can see the rabbit from the house but it is not visible from the street so it is safe from theft.


This summer our rabbit made a new friend! A wild rabbit came to visit over the course of several days in July. She would sit near our rabbit in companionable silence for up to an hour in the late afternoon. After a few visits, she moved on to greener pastures (hopefully) and we didn't see her again.

That is PRECIOUS! How sweet to see that wild bunny looking for a friend. Maybe he just needed a quiet ear for a while.

Ah, this is "stony silence" but in a good way!

DEZMOND said...

Laurie said...

Willow said...

That is so sweet, sort of .
Long ago I had a boyfriend I sat next to for days on end until I realized he was just stone cold. Analogy ? hee hee

Now that is just the sweetest thing! The real rabbit was probably wondering why static rabbit was not joining in the rabbit fun!

Fundy Blue said...

The bunny fun continues! How darling that the wild bunny hung out with your garden bunny! I have to admit that my eyes went straight to the inukshuk ~ especially after seeing a number of them in Labrador. Have a good one with your Rare One!

So, the new bunny wasn't in love with your stone bunny? Harumph... And here I thought there was going to be a true, long term romance.

Bird said...

Hi Debra! I love that you have your little bunny near the Inukshuk, almost to keep it company too. I hope your curious and quiet friend who visited your front yard bunny is safely munching greens in someone else's yard, too. Bright blessings,
Bird

That is sweet! Looks like the bunny was attracted to the strong and 'silent' type :)

mistress maddie said...

How cute! There got to be a message from the universe in there. Meanwhile the rock sculpture reminds me of the ones from the stream ip at our camping site!

Cheryl said...

That is so cute. Hope the brown bunny didn't think the white bunny was being rude and indifferent.

gal artist said...

Maybe he thought the stone bunny was playing hard to get. :/

Francie M said...

Thinking deep rabbity thoughts, no doubt. Great photo!

Rue said...

Awww! Sadly, White Bunny didn't return the advances of Grey Bunny and he moved on to find somebunny more appreciative of his wild stories and snoring.


Adam said...

it was love at first sight until she realized he was made of stone.

Guillaume said...

I think the wild rabbit should be called Pygmalion.

Birdie said...

OMG! You have a Velveteen Rabbit!

Magic Love Crow said...

This is so sweet! I love this! How special Debra! Did you build your inukshuk? It's excellent! I have always wanted to build one for our house! Take Care ;o)

Kellie @ Delightfully Ludicrous said...

Aww, your stone rabbit had a summer fling!

Magaly Guerrero said...

I bet she stole a few kisses before she moved on ;-D

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Sweet but sad. I had to wonder what the wild bunny was thinking..wondering why his new friend didn't respond in any way.
I have a bunny like that out on my patio and I love her. She is in the back patio so safe and sound.

YONKS said...

How wonderful for you to witness that companionship. I wonder if the visiting rabbit thought "she's a bit on the quiet side, but I love her". Magical.

Jeanne said...

That is SO COOL!!!!! A friend for your Bunbun. Lovely statue - very lifelike. And I adore your inukshuk! I'm jealous...must make myself one next we're at the Homestead.....

missy said...

Ain't nature grand...Poor Bunny

That is very sweet. Maybe the other bunny left to find more drama than yours could provide.

Be well, Debra.

Have a good Sunday, eh.

Lisa said...

That is gorgeous. I bet the other rabbit got sick of being ignored. lol

Caroline said...

Awww...that's sweet!

Riot Kitty said...

That is adorable! I had a cat a few years ago who would sit and cuddle up with (and even nibble the ears of) a piece of art, a Oaxacan painted wooden cat. Luckily he did not show affection toward us by ear biting.

Scarlett Wonderland said...

This is absolutely adorable xx

A Beer For The Shower said...

That is beyond adorable, and I won't even pretend that it didn't melt my blackened heart.

SUZY8-TRACK said...

That is a sweet story! Love the photo too!

Miss Val's Creations said...

So sweet. The wild rabbit must have been a bit baffled as to why its new companion never moved.

Dexter Klemperer said...

Maybe she was just meditating on the inukshuk.

Elsie Amata said...

We had a bunny that came to visit us every night over the summer too. It would sit outside the back door and tease our dogs. It was hysterical.

DWei said...

Reminds me of the baby rabbits we found on our front lawn when I was mowing it.

Don't worry, I didn't hit any.

Tammy Theriault said...

bunny love for real! cute pics girlie

LL Cool Joe said...

We have rabbits all over own grass at times. I have thought about getting an air rifle coz they do so much damage, now I feel guilty for feeling that way.

Suzie Ridler said...

OMG, that is so cute!
