Posted by Mrs. JP
Today was the perfect day for working outside. I have been needing to go out and pull up the garden that was pretty much a bust. I pulled up the tomato plants and weeded around some and realized that there is hope for the brussel sprouts (JP has been saying this all along.) So, encouraged in that fact, I kept clearing what I could. It just looks so much better.
The marigolds are blooming and remind me that fall is here.
I kept clearing around the sprout plants and was glad that I'd put newspaper and paper bags around them to keep the weeds down. I noticed one clump that looked like it was rotting so I pulled it back and.....squint to refocus,,,,gulp,,,gasp!!! SHUT THE FRONT DOOR (my newest exclamation from an oreo commercial) there are little baby bunnies laying in that hole.
I quickly replace the stuff on top of them horrified that I just mowed right beside them. To make amends I went and got an old bale of straw from the dog yard and covered them up. awwwwwwwwww I hope that they are okay and the momma bunny doesn't mind that I disturbed her,,hole?...nest? Whatever the term I hope their heart beats are getting back to normal...mine finally is.
Blessings from the holler...
