As summer begins to wind down,
our ferns around the bird feeders are dying back and thinning out
leaving some of the ground exposed for the first time since Spring.
And guess who I found?
Oh my gosh!
Could it be?
Let's take a closer look.
It's my long lost Rabbit friend!
The poor guy disappeared from his garden perch on May 12th, 2010
and apparently has been lying face down in the dirt all summer.
I have no idea how he got moved underneath the ferns
but I was so happy to see him.
He didn't look too bad, all things considered.
I gave him a bath and some soothing, encouraging words
then found him a new place in the garden
surrounded by cheerful flowers.
He is such a happy guy.
Welcome back Rabbit friend!
