Bunnies, Severe Weather & My Garden

I do have a few recipes to share. But tonight, I am burst­ing to tell you about my Lion Lop bun­nies and if I tell you about my Lion Lops, I have to tell you about the severe weath­er that has con­sumed half of their lit­tle pre­cious lives AND if I tell you about the recent severe weath­er, I have to tell you about my gar­den. So — I will share a yum­my, superbly per­fect choco­late but­ter­cream recipe tomor­row­ish.

When the fore­cast com­pels me to do this to my gar­den — believe me, trou­ble is “a brewin’”!

image

My poor toma­to plants, you know… the ones I tend­ed to from the time they were wee seedlings??

image

Well, the hail came and by “hail” I mean HAIL.

image

Just look at this angry sky?! Noth­ing good can come from that!

image

Well, noth­ing good did come from it — at least that is what my gar­den ((and roof and win­dows and gut­ters)) thinks.

What’s that you say?? You don’t rec­og­nize the veg­e­ta­tion in the above pho­to. Well, let me help you iden­ti­fy it. It is a toma­to plant, that was bushy, full of yel­low blooms & 3 feet tall 24 hours pri­or. BOO. Well, I am con­sid­er­ing it an “aggres­sive” prun­ing ses­sion rather than what could be con­strued as utter anni­hi­la­tion.

Along with the hail — my lit­tle spot on the map received almost 11″ of rain in 5 days. Plants don’t like that either, me thinks.

Momma Lula is nesting over her babies while riding out the storm in our underground storm shelter.

In spite of all the crazy weath­er, the baby bun­nies have been stay­ing cozy with their mom­ma & grow­ing nice­ly!

The above pho­to was snapped on day 6. This when I first not­ed their whiskers & teeth ((eek!!)).

image

Now — on Day 9, they are becom­ing down right fluffy!! Still no open eyes, but accord­ing to “the Google” ((right Lau­ra??)), their lit­tle eyes should be open­ing any day! 

image

This evening, for the first time, I did notice them sniff­ing with their per­fect tiny bun­ny noses!

image

Aren’t they just pre­cious?? 

image

Bub­ba hopped up on his roof so he could get a bet­ter look at what I was doing to his babies. ((oh, I just love them!!))

Bub­ba and Lula are very atten­tive par­ents, always keep­ing a close eye on me while I mess with their trea­sured lit­ter. And there you have it!! I would much rather talk about ten­nis ball sized baby bun­nies than ten­nis ball sized hail any day!!

image

Oh — it is all I can do not to car­ry them around in my pock­et all day. “Sup­pos­ed­ly”, we are sell­ing these lovies in 5 weeks. Hmmm.
