hello bunny

Grampa used to feed the wild bunnies that lived in his neighborhood. I have this photograph framed and see it daily with warm thoughts of living in Pennsylvania and being with grandparents, cousins, aunts and uncles.

Now I live on a different coast and find an abundance of wild bunnies living in my neighborhood. Many visit daily, munching on the front yard or hiding under my car. They scatter and bounce away when I get too close. I wish I knew Grampa's secret... maybe lots of patience and a little bunny whispering.

Precious. I think there are bunnies in your yard for a reason and soon they will be eating out of your hand! :)

"bunny whispering" sounds like the answer! and some tasty "snacks"...

i have bunnies too! i love to see them scampering across the yard!

i have never been able to get them to come close, but my daughter has the animal gift....she fed a squirrel right out of her hand at the grand canyon! :)

The bunny Grandpa fed was Posie! He'd put a little apple out every night for Posie and she started eating it each night. Then he slowly, over a long time, started staying in the yard while she ate and he just worked at getting closer and closer until finally she'd take it out of his fingers! I remember that day. You guys loved it! So did Grandpa!
