5 baby bunnies appeared when Rob mowed over their hole this week. Three hopped away and these two just sat there looking stunned. I wasn't home, but by the time I pulled in the driveway the girls thought they were keeping them as pets. They were heartbroken when I broke the news that we had to leave them out so their mother could find them.
Georgia found a toad, too.
A few heavenly hours of bunny holding came to an end when they put them out in a box with towels to wait for their mother (who I have seen hopping around the neighbor's compost).
I was hoping mother would come while the girls were hoping she wouldn't. The bunnies were gone in the morning and I hope they went back with mama and not to the jaws of the neighbor's cat.
