The Rabbit Hole

As I was sitting on the front porch this morning with Patches,  I noticed a disturbance in the grass.  When I walked over to investigate, I found this hole.

This hole appeared in our front yard during the overnight.

This evening I found out who dug this hole.

A Rabbit and its Hole

What a stupid place to dig a burrow.  It is in our front yard, near the street, in an open, unprotected area.

Bob says there is nothing in the hole … yet.  I think Bob is going to fill in the hole with dirt.  Perhaps if we keep going outside, out front, the rabbit will get discouraged and find another, more suitable place to dig a hole.

Not What Was Intended

This morning, while sitting in the living room reading today’s newspaper, I caught movement across the window on the opposite end of the room.  I went to the window and saw a blue jay, my first sighting this year.  I went to get my camera.  When I returned to the living room window, the blue jay was gone.  However, there were several juncos about.  Juncos don’t stay still for long, so I kept focusing and re-focusing.  At one point I think I moved away from my viewfinder, momentarily, with a sigh.  As I moved away from the viewfinder, I saw an animal looking at ME!

Hey bunny rabbit!

I felt better about my photo opportunities through that window, after the rabbit so nicely posed for me.  I saw another junco, lowered my eye to the viewfinder, focused on the junco’s eye and captured this photograph.

Neither of these photographs were what was intended.  I wanted a photograph of that blue jay.  Well, maybe next time.

Backyard Visitors

Here are photographs of a few critters that visited our backyard last week.

I like how the setting sun shines on the rabbit’s ears.

Mother’s Day Visitors

Here are some visitors who came to our backyard on Mother’s Day.

Male Cardinal

As soon as he saw me, he started to sing 🙂

Rabbit

I thought this bunny was going to hop onto the picnic pavilion, where I was sitting. He didn’t.

Robin in flight!

I was sitting on our picnic pavilion with my Kindle, when I took these pictures. Needless to say I didn’t manage to get much reading done!

Later in the evening, Bob made a fire. We cooked hot dogs over the fire. A little later Stacey dropped by to wish me a Happy Mother’s Day. She had stopped earlier in the day, but we weren’t home. We had gone on a motorcycle ride, which I will blog about later. Stacey gave me a card for Mother’s Day. Inside the card was written:

“I owe you one (1) bakery item of your choice at the time of your choosing”.

As soon as I read Stacey’s message, I said “apple fritter”. I really like Tim Horton’s apple fritters. After thinking over my response, I told Stacey that I would like a Black Forest Cherry Cake. Stacey promised me both an apple fritter and a Black Forest Cherry Cake. I’ll share the cake with friends. The apple fritter is all mine!
